Geography: How can you help save the rainforest?

In our topic lessons, we have been thinking about why the rainforests are in the news and what we can do to help save them.

We have been learning about how the world rainforests are being cut down (deforestation) so that palm trees can be planted to produce the much-needed palm oil.

In response, we thought we could use our blog to help raise awareness of this and how we can help save our rainforests by only buying products that either do not contain palm oil or those which contain it but when it is sustainably produced.

Could you join us as we help to save the rainforests?

  3. Dear Readers,
    In year 5, we are learning about the rainforest. Before this lesson I thought that the rainforest was a humble place for the animals to live , a place that was unharmed and peaceful, but I was wrong. I am telling you this information, because the rainforest is a beautiful place full of wild creatures that have been and are about to be thrown out of their homes.
    Many parts of the rainforest are now being bought by many different people that want the same thing and they are willing to burn down animals habitats for money and palm oil.
    Palm oil is a liquid that comes from palm trees and is used in many products. The owners of the land grow palm trees that produce the palm oil, they then sell the palm oil to different companies that will use the oil in their products.
    As long as you buy the products that contain palm oil, the rainforest will be in danger. Instead, buy the resources that use sustainable palm oil, to save our rainforests!

If you really want to save the rainforest you need to think about what you are buying because some products contain palm oil. Palm oil is a kind of oil that comes from palm trees and people are cutting down our rainforests and then planting palm trees to get more palm oil for products and people (like you) buy them. You may think it isn’t that bad but really it is because they are not caring for the animals and plants that live there. So if you buy these products they will need more and more palm oil that will damage the animals habitats in our rainforests forever!
