The Applauded Team take on the exciting Rickshaw Run across Sri Lanka in Oct 2019, to get out of their comfort zone and raise funds for great causes! Cool Earth are the official charity of the Adventurists, to put it simply they save rainforest and they do a damn fine job of it. Now saving the rainforest isn’t a new idea. Managing to do it however is. Over the last 40 years, half the world’s rainforests have been destroyed. That’s why Cool Earth decided to go about things differently. They don’t create reserves or put up fences. They don’t buy land. Instead, they put indigenous people back in control of the world’s most endangered rainforest. These people have lived in the forest for countless generations and their homes are now on the frontline of deforestation. By building better incomes, better schools and better clinics, Cool Earth give their partner villages the resources they need to keep their forest intact. Cool Earth is now working alongside 113 rainforest villages throughout the world. These partner villages are protecting over 900,000 acres of forest that lie directly in the path of chainsaws and bulldozers. The clever part is that this forest forms a shield to make the neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers – saving millions of acres of further forest. Please support us in our efforts to keep this amazing planet healthy! ?
“We must save every rainforest in the world so future generations have somewhere to get stuck. Not because we’re tree hugging sandal weavers, but because the world would be shit without them. It’s not just about the carbon, the point is rainforests are indescribably excellent” - The Adventurists.
The Applauded Team agree and are big advocates of conservation; so keeping the lungs of Planet Earth safe is a key component of that vision. Please support us and help make a real difference!
