Many small actions add up to big change, and it will take a dedicated “green army” to help end deforestation and plant a future. Every day, every person can choose to make a difference. All it takes is a little focus on how you can reduce, reuse, recycle, rethink and, of course, replant. There’s an old saying: if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Take action!

“Of all the places WWF works, the rate of destruction in Borneo and Sumatra defies the imagination. Devising a solution equal to the weight of humanity’s pressure on this rich place will take persistence, creativity and collaboration. We are grateful for the support and leadership of partners like Avon who realize we all have an important role to play in meeting this challenge.”
"With support from Avon, The Nature Conservancy has made significant progress in restoring Brazil's Atlantic Forest, one of the most endangered and biologically diverse forests in the world. The Atlantic Forest is home to tens of thousands of plant and animal species - many found nowhere else on Earth – and it is the source of drinking water for 70 percent of Brazil's population. It is critical that we save the Atlantic Forest for both people and nature."
