 What is the Borneo Nature Foundation and why do we support them?

The Borneo Nature Foundation is a non-profit organization that helps to protect the rapidly diminishing Borneo rainforest. Located in Southeast Asia, the Borneo rainforest spans across three countries and is home to many endangered animals, most notably the Borneo orangutans. This rainforest is one of the oldest and most biodiverse rainforests in the world. It is being cleared at an alarming rate due to illegal logging, forest fires, hunting/wildlife trade and palm oil production.

With every Holistick purchase, we donate money to the Borneo Nature Foundation. Our goal is to help scale up their tree planting efforts, protect some of the last remaining endangered species and support community led initiatives by the indigenous people still living there. The Borneo Rainforest is a globally important carbon store and reforestation is a valuable step towards reducing climate change.
