Prince’s Rainforest Project

August 2nd, 2009

The Prince of Wales’ broadcast about the Prince’s Rainforests Project (PRP), distributed via You Tube appeared as a tiny feature in the so-called ‘free’ newspapers, blink and you would have missed the sentence that promoted it. Instead, they of course, gave a half page to their ‘green’ efforts; ‘What can you make from the free newspaper in question?’ Where they give £1000 to those who bother to take their paper home and recycle it into some form of art…

The Prince’s Rainforests Project is on the other hand working to support ‘Rainforest nations’, helping them to change their attitudes to the Rainforests, to see them as more valuable as living entities, than as piles of expensive and exportable hardwood. The Prince’s Rainforest Project aims to make these changes by bringing together richer nations, developing Rainforest friendly policy and through injecting funds into the nations who own and have dominion over the lungs of the Earth.

For those who havent yet viewed it, the short video by the Prince of Wales about The Prince’s Rainforests Project on You tube is a really valuable watch. You can also see the accompanying promo video below:

The Prince has always been ahead of his time in matters green but scoffed and deigned inappropriately political by journalists. However, he has more often than not been right, although I should imagine that there is little satisfaction in this, when watching our fragile planet as it slowly implodes at our hands.

We are really happy to be supporting The Prince’s Rainforests Project on our site where we promote his campaign to try to bring about a slow down (one day a stop perchance?) to the dangerous deforestation of the Rainforests. Please do follow our link to visit his site and sign up to support the project.

The site contains some really interesting information and if you want to have nightmares, then simply watch the whirling o’meter’ at the top of the screen which monitors the amount of forest destroyed, thus releasing tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere, as you visit……
