EARTH WAS CREATED FOR ALL LIFE NOT JUST HUMAN LIFE
Every choice, every day will effect our planet and it’s future. Which is why we choose to walk a little lighter in all that we do and sell…
We do each month an action to change this world that becomes crazy… As human populations expand, wildlife comes under increasing threat.
5% of all sarong and wall art orders will be designated to adopt an orangutan by month.
We choose to work with International Animal Rescue. As you might know, the plight of orangutans has reached a critical stage. Animals are suffering and dying because of the systematic destruction of the rainforest, for palm oil production, particularly in the island of Borneo.
International Animal Rescue save animals from suffering around the world.
It includes cutting free and caring for dancing bears in India, rescuing primates from captivity in Indonesia and sterilising and vaccinating stray dogs and cats in developing countries. Wherever possible they return rescued animals to their natural environment and they provide a permanent home for animals that can no longer survive in the wild.
By rescuing individual animals belonging to species like the orangutan and reintroducing them into protected areas in the wild, they also play a role in the conservation of the species as a whole.
October 2018, we adopted Gito. The association found him in 2015 and were providing 24 hour intensive care to this baby that had been dumped in a filthy cardboard box and left out in the sun to die.
At first they feared he was already dead, they were shocked by the state he was in.
It is incredible that Gito was still alive when they got to him.
Gito was put on a drip and course of medication to treat him for dehydration, malnutrition and the skin infection.
We’ll never know exactly what happened to Gito in the first few months of his life. It’s likely his mother was brutally killed and her traumatised baby was torn from her warm body and taken into captivity. Fed on just condensed milk, he was so weak from lack of food that he couldn’t even sit up.
3 years after, he is better but he still need treatment.
