BAL are protecting the rainforest one square metre at a time.
For every square metre of tiling fixed with BAL's Environmental Adhesive products, the equivalent area in the Peruvian Amazon is protected.
"The great thing about being a Partner of Cool Earth is that, literally, it makes a measurable difference every time a tile fixer uses a product from BAL's Environmental Adhesives range. For every square metre of tiling laid with one of the six products, a square metre of threatened rainforest is protected”.
David Hackett, Sales and Marketing Director of BAL
Cool Earth is very proud to be working with BAL who are committed to conserving a minimum of 83 acres of endangered rainforest per year. Their support has a very real impact on the lives of indigenous communities, and is locking in thousands of tonnes of CO2.
BAL are partnering with 16 Asháninka villages to save 1,714 acres of rainforest in Peru.
The Asháninka are Peru’s largest indigenous nation and until now have lived deep in the heart of the amazon rainforest. Today, the deforestation frontline has arrived on their doorstep. Our Asháninka Project is in the Ene Valley, one of the world’s most at-risk areas. Illegal logging and the cocaine trade are destroying the forest. With the support of BAL, Cool Earth is linking villages together to shield millions of acres of neighbouring forest.
