Our planet has already lost 80 percent of its forests to deforestation. With this alarming rate of burning down forests, it won’t take long for that figure to reach the 100 percent mark.
Oakland, CA – October 20, 2015 – Maryamoo Tp and her fiancé are tea lovers and nature enthusiasts. They love our planet and try our best to keep a sustainable lifestyle. Two months ago they decided to travel to Asia. On their trip they got to try the most amazing teas from all around Asia. As they got to know more about the teas and where they come from they got inspired by their sustainable ways of tea farming. So they decided to set up an online shop where we can import these fine eastern teas and help these small farms to continue their contribution to a healthy ecosystem.
After researching and getting involved with the local organizations who are trying to stop the deforestations, they decided to donate 10 percent of the sales from the tea shop to this cause.
They believe in a business model that is designed to operate profitable in order to help charities. That way the beneficial effect increases along with the company growth.
Their goal is to import high quality tea which can be very expensive. In order to make these high quality teas affordable for everyone they need to meet a minimum quantity threshold. The more tea they order, the better their price will be and more affordable for their future customers. In addition, they need to reach a certain volume in order to work with packaging manufacturers and package the teas at an affordable cost. They already have tea farms and packaging manufacturers lined up and ready to go, so they need your help to get this up and running! Please help them to bring you the soothing teas that they are in love it and help the cause they are most passionate about.
Why Are Rainforests Important?
Fires in Indonesia produce some of the world’s worst pollution, sending suffocating smog to cities hundreds of miles away. Clearing rainforest to make way for palm plantations is heavily affecting local communities, destroying natural habitats for endangered species (like orangutans, Sumatran tigers, Bornean rhinos, and pygmy elephants), and is a critical factor in climate change. Fewer rainforests mean less rain, less oxygen for us to breathe, and an increased threat from global warming.
In order to make the earth livable for the future generations we need to preserve the rainforests. Scientists estimate that we are losing more than 137 species of plants and animals every single day because of rainforest deforestation. Currently, 121 prescription drugs that are sold worldwide come from plant-derived sources. And while 25 percent of Western pharmaceuticals are derived from rainforest ingredients, less than 1 percent of these tropical trees and plants have been tested by scientists.
The U.S. National Cancer Institute has identified 3000 plants that are active against cancer cells. Seventy percent of these plants are found in the rainforest. As Dr. Christophe Wiart, ethnopharmacologist from University of Nottingham, said “The last hope for the human race’s survival, I believe, is in the rainforests of tropical Asia.”
