Despite their immense value, nearly half of the world’s rainforests have been lost since the 1960’s. Every day, 200,000 acres of rainforest are burned around the world. That’s equivalent to an area 14 times the size of Manhattan.
More than one billion people depend on forests. And, more than 90 percent of people living in extreme poverty in these regions depend on forests for part of their livelihoods.
Rainforests are not only the source of the finest tea, but are also responsible for one in five breaths we take.
