is about helping us live a more conscientious life, of shedding long-set habits, and helping us realize the self in order to attain our dreams.
We connect traditions, organizations, and movements that work towards building a healthier world, beginning with the self, and resulting in the universal. Along with Bosque Medicinal, we are investing in the construction of educational programs and infrastructure to reconnect with the rainforests. By seeing and directly experiencing these beautiful ecosystems, we help educate our societies of their importance and interconnectivity with our own lives.
The rainforests are a rare and precious eco-system that helps care for and maintain our shared planet. The rainforests are host to a range of benefits for you as an individual, and for us as a planet.
Studies indicate that at least 80% of western culture’s diet consists of foods discovered in the rainforest. The list is substantial, and includes a huge variety of fruit, vegetables, nuts, and spices. Avocados, coconuts, figs, many citrus fruits, bananas, pineapples, guavas, mangos, tomatoes, corn, potatoes, black pepper, cayenne, chocolate, cloves, ginger, sugar cane, tumeric, coffee, vanilla, cashews, and brazil nuts make up a short sample.
Beyond food, the rainforest may have even been responsible for saving your life. Plants originating from within the rainforest are responsible for 25% of current perscription medicine. This is despite having only explored less than 1% of the plants of the Amazon with modern science. The biodiversity of the Amazon rainforests is unprecedented, with studies estimating between 50 – 90% of the world’s species reside in, and rely on the rainforests.
The Amazon basin stores 25% of the world’s fresh water. Healthy rainforests, and they’re rarer counterpart, cloud forests, soak up and maintain fresh water in abundance. They are vital to the planet’s climate, processing vast amounts of atmospheric carbon, and forming a critical part of the global water cycle.
The support and guidance of indigenous populations is critical in understanding further opportunities that can arise from working with the forests.
HOW WE ARE HELPING
Forest.Ink is a fundraising foundation that is dedicated to supporting the new world paradigm. We connect traditions, communities and organizations that work towards building a healthier and happier world.
By investing in the construction of educational facilities, rainforest preservation projects (through Bosque Medicinal) and other necessary programs, we hope to encourage the reconnection to the importance of nature.
Our understanding is that what begins in the self will manifest in the entire universe around. Collaboration and participation are the necessary ways to facilitate lasting change for a more conscious life, for realizing the self and for attaining our dreams.
As this is a 100% volunteer-based project, we have no overhead, allowing 100% of donations facilitated by us to go directly to the causes we support. We also sell items in our shop, including products directly from the jungle, artwork created from previous events, with all profits going towards supporting conservation efforts through Bosque Medicinal.
