pictures PROTECTING PIECES OF planet
Every picture that is sold on our platform protects a piece of rainforest through a donation to RAINFOREST TRUST.
You can find their website here
Rainforest Trust has has been protecting the most biodiverse places on earth for over 33 years, and is widely regarded as one of the most important organisations with this goal. It costs them on average 2 US dollars to protect an acre of rainforest. We use that figure to calculate the amount of forest a particular picture on our website wil protect.
Originals protect 1 million times their surface area
Each original sold on Paint for Planet will protect an area of rainforest that is one million times its own surface area. That means every square meter becomes a square kilometer.
In this starting phase of our organisation, for every print and limited edition print, HALF of the net-revenue is donated to Rainforest trust. The rest of the revenue goes to the artists and growing our organisation, making sure we can keep doing this. That way, we can go on protecting more and more!
Prints and limited editions : 50%
DEDICATING A GROWING PERCENTAGE
As our organisation keeps growing, and when our revenue stream allows for it
we will increase the percentage dedicated to the forests. By supporting us now, you make this future come closer to the present.
WHY SUPPORT THE FORESTS LIKE THIS?
Of course, jou can also support Rainforest trust directly. We would love you to do that!
Supporting the preservation of the rainforest in this indirect way does have advantages though.
In the long run, these pictures can actually lead to more donations!
Hanging on your wall, these pictures start conversations about forest conservation. These pictures can actually go on protecting more and more forest by getting others enthusiastic for the cause as well.
They come with a QR-code which you can hang next to them to lead people right to where they need to be to join the cause!
If you're like most people, the rainforest is not always on top of your mind. These pictures help remind us of their beauty and of the importance to act to preserve them.
For artists and creative makers, this is a good way to support a cause, get some public attention and earn some money at the same time!
STARTING CHAIN (SAW) REACTIONS
Some of the features of this platform are intended to spread the word and recruit as many people to the cause as possible. Take the chain saw reactions for instance. These work as follows:
Give one to someone. Instruct them that they are urged to give another one to someone else, with the same instruction. Get one, give one, get one, give one. The initiator can save much more rainforest than in a conventional manner. And everybody but the initiator breaks even, but the rainforest wins big!
