Check out colorfultshirts store. We are selling 100% preshrunk cotton tshirts with beautiful pictures of many different animals--frogs, meerkats, eagle, wolves, giraffes, rhino, and more. Shipping and handling includes insurance. Since this is a project for our kids, we will do our next order on April 15. It will take about 4 weeks after that for you to receive your shirt. We are doing this as a part of our rainforest unit. The more shirts we sell, the more acres can be protected. This year's area is the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. The shirts are from the Earth Foundation who sends money to the Nature Conservancy. We will not make any money from this--all proceeds will go to Earth Foundation. So far we have sold 400 items. This will save 40 acres. We would like to save 100 acres which means that we need to sell another 600 items.

Every ten items = 1 acre. Did you know that the rainforests give 20% of the world's oxygen?

So far our students have sold 456 t-shirts. This translates to 45.6 acres saved. We would like to achieve 100 acres saved!


Did you know?
We are losing Earth's greatest biological treasures just as we are beginning to appreciate their true value. Rainforests once covered 14% of the earth's land surface; now they cover a mere 6% and experts estimate that the last remaining rainforests could be consumed in less than 40 years.
One and one-half acres of rainforest (about the size of a football field) are lost every second with tragic consequences for both developing and industrial countries.
Currently, 121 prescription drugs currently sold worldwide come from plant-derived sources. And while 25% of Western pharmaceuticals are derived from rainforest ingredients, less than 1% of these tropical trees and plants have been tested by scientists.

Find more rainforest facts at http://www.rain-tree.com/facts.htm.

Adopt an Acre funds are used primarily to protect and restore land. Because these acres often require stewardship and management, a portion of the funds may also be used for the following types of activities:
Hiring, training and equipping park rangers.
Conducting environmental education programs for people living in and around the area.
Developing environmentally sound uses for rainforest lands.
Building ranger stations and other conservation facilities.
Other related program costs.

We have sold 470 items. That means 47 acres of rainforest in Osa Peninsula saved. We have extended the next sale to April 21. The first order of shirts arrived one week after ordering. I can't guarantee this group will come in as fast. We would appreciate your help! We would like to sell 530 more items so that we can save 100 acres.
I will combine orders to save you on postage!

These make great gifts.
