Our impact

Great news for Indonesian rainforest: Asia Pulp & Paper commit to forest conservation policy

BOS Foundation (Borneo Orangutan Survival)We primarily focus on consumer power to protect vulnerable ancient forests. When an individual makes an environmentally-conscious choice, it is an important step for conservation. But when a corporation implements an environmentally-conscious policy, that impact is amplified thousands of times over.  Often times, it takes the power of the consumer to pressure a company to do the right thing.

And all the amazing creatures who call those forests home can thank mindful consumers for making that important step in the conversation process.
