We all need to take a look at our products that we purchase and start to think about where they have come from and the process from start to finish. Is this an ethical and sustainable product. If it isn’t don’t buy it. We all need to change and little steps at a time will help. I am slowly taking note and becoming more mindful. You don’t need to strip your cupboard but next time you run out of something, search for something that is better for you, the environment and animal welfare. Yes certain products can be more expensive, however use them sparingly, don’t be wasteful. THINK BEFORE YOU BUY!
‘In the dense rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra, high in the pendulous canopy of Nyatoh trees, strangler figs, and massive Ironwood so large they grow thick flying buttresses to help anchor them to the spot, live the “people of the forest,” the Malaysian term for orangutans. There are only two species of orangutan: one that lives on the island of Sumatra, and the other on the Island of Borneo, both of which are critically endangered. While the arm span of an adult orangutan is likely longer than you are tall (up to seven feet – an adaptation that makes them well suited to a life in the canopy), they are in other regards not so different from us. They make leafy homes in the treetops, meticulously care for their young, and even use large leaves to keep themselves dry while it rains. They’re also highly intelligent, and in the past have been taught to use sign language.
