Buyagift are one of Cool Earth’s most passionate partners, and were early backers of Cool Earth’s smart model.
Anyone enjoying a Buyagift experience can participate in their day's events knowing that for any emissions produced by their gift experience there is forest protected that locks in vast amounts more carbon that would have otherwise been released into the earth's atmosphere.
Buyagift want their customers to enjoy their once in a lifetime experience without worrying about the carbon emissions produced. By protecting forest with Cool Earth vast amounts of carbon get locked in, which otherwise would be released into the atmosphere. This offsets any emissions from Buyagift experiences many times over.
Buyagift supports Cool Earth's project in Central Peru, empowering the indigenous people who have lived in the rainforest of for thousands of years to protect their home. These areas are also home to some of the world's most valuable bio-diversity.
"If as a business you are fortunate enough to find yourselves in a position where you are able to make a difference then we feel you have an obligation to do so. We are proud to be working with Cool Earth in an effort to help slow the relentless destruction of the rainforests."
Dan Mountain, CEO of Buyagift
Buyagift 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 Buyagift, Cool Earth is linking villages together to shield millions of acres of neighbouring forest.
