Save Your World Saves 120,000 Acres Of Rainforest In South America

As the first company in the United States to launch a personal care product line enhanced with organic aloe vera and yerba maté, Save Your World has protected 120,000 acres of rainforest in Guyana, South America, from destructive development.

A unique and innovative leasing program, one of the world’s first of its kind, is helping to save the rainforest under its “green” business model One Product = One Acre of Rainforest Saved for One YearTM. The Save Your WorldTM product sales and contributions enable Conservation International to maintain its agreement with the Guyana Forestry Commission to protect the rainforest in its pristine state. A conservation concession rather than a timber concession is Save Your World’s goal when it enters into this renewable 30-year agreement.

As Scott Cecil, President of Save Your World, explains, “Save Your World is committed to protecting our natural resources.” The goal is to protect biodiversity-rich areas for future generations so that people can live in harmony with nature. Saving 120,000 acres of rainforest is an exciting milestone for us.

In Guyana, the project has been a tremendous success since, for the first time, the government and people don’t have to decide between conservation and economic development, a necessity for one of the poorest nations in the Western Hemisphere,” said Conservation International Chief Economist Dick Rice.

As one of the richest areas for plant and animal biodiversity, the South American rainforest project is located on the world’s oldest geological formation. The U.S. National Cancer Institute has identified 70% or more plants in rainforests as having anti-cancer characteristics, and they contain about half of the planet’s five to ten million plant and animal species.
