Green Freedom Fund
Humanities impact on the environment is a sum of all of our actions. At Green Habit we are committed to going against the flow and challenging mindsets to pave the way for change by making better choices a daily habit.
We have created The Green Freedom Fund as a movement to build palm oil awareness and financially support organisations who are proactively helping on the front line. We have chosen to support The Orangutan Project.
The Not-so-fun Palm Oil Facts
Green Habit is committed to producing its products using zero palm oil or palm oil derived ingredients and the Green Freedom Fund enables 5% of each product sold through the Green Habit online store to be donated to the Orangutan Project to support their efforts with rebuilding the rainforests and saving and rehabilitating the Orangutans.
After your purchase you can personally decide where your contribution will go, with the option to choose between two different projects under the Orangutan Project.
Only 1 out of 6 orangutan orphans are lucky enough to be rescued - over 1,000 orphaned orangutans are living in rescue and rehabilitation centres. Care for these infants is costly and requires 24hr staff, veterinary and nurse care to ensure they are in a healthy condition and have the best chance to survive – and possibly even return to the wild.
Helping the Orangutan Project with adoption money means funds will go directly to helping the orphans at the various care centres.
The Orangutan tree planting program helps reforest land and expands orangutan habitat areas by planting trees to contribute towards the reforestation of land adjacent to orangutan habitats. The Orangutan Caring Club of North Sumatra has permission from the Forestry Department to plant trees on 100 hectares of degraded land next to Gunung Leuser National Park. The destruction of the rainforest causes more global warming than all the transport systems in the world combined, therefore, the protection of orangutan habitat benefits all future generations.
