1) A single acre of rainforest can contain as many different plant species as the whole of the UK (thatโs around 1,500)
2) It’s not just the rainforests that are under threat. For example, just 5% of Finland and Sweden’s ancient forests (snowforests) remain. The rest have been converted into plantations.
3) 30 gallons of oil are saved for every tonne of glass which is recycled
Be Responsible When Buying Souvenirs.
Think twice before buying certain souvenirs when you’re overseas.
Many souvenirs in exotic places are made from endangered animals. Knickknacks made from materials such as ivory, reptile skins, tortoise shells and coral not only encourage poachers, but may be illegal to bring back to your home country.
