Rainforest Alliance's Follow the Frog week celebrates sustainability
Follow the Frog. You don’t have to travel to the ends of the Earth to protect the planet — just follow the frog! Learn how you can support a more sustainable future — watch our “Follow the Frog” video then share it with family and friends/ Follow @RnfrstAlliance on Twitter and “like” the Rainforest Alliance on Facebook to get the latest environmental news and tips for a sustainable life.
Why this matters: Farming and the grazing of livestock are responsible for 70 percent of global deforestation. By choosing products that bear the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal, you’re supporting farms that protect soils from erosion and waterways from pollution and that support the well-being of farm workers and their communities.
Shop the Frog. When shopping, look for the Rainforest Alliance’s little green frog on everyday items like coffee, tea, chocolate, fruit, flowers, paper and furniture. And when planning a vacation, use SustainableTrip.org to find hotels, lodges and tour operators in Latin America and the Caribbean that are good neighbors to the community and the environment.
Why this matters: The Rainforest Alliance Certified seal and the Rainforest Alliance Verified mark are your assurance that goods and travel services meet strict standards for environmental, social and economic sustainability. By choosing the green frog seal, you’re rewarding communities for their commitments to sustainability and investing in their futures.
Support the Frog. Show your support of the Rainforest Alliance by purchasing a Follow the Frog Week T-shirt from SelflessTee. A portion of the proceeds will go to support the Rainforest Alliance’s global sustainability initiatives, and by wearing the T-shirt, you are helping to raise awareness of the Rainforest Alliance and the importance of consumer choice.
Why this matters: Small actions lead to big change. If everyone takes just one small step to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle, we can collectively make huge strides toward protecting our planet’s precious resources for generations to come.
