    Protecting the rainforest -
    that's the goal of ourpiece.

    Rainforests continue to be exposed to massive threats worldwide, and the amount of rainforest left is constantly shrinking. ourpiece takes a direct approach to protecting the rainforest. We bought patches of rainforest, established partnerships with local partners, and protected these patches of forest from fire clearing and deforestation.

    Over the long run we can only maintain this commitment
    with the help of people who share the same goals as we do. Therefore we thank all participants who took part in ourpiece, bought their own piece of virtual rainforest and joined us in ensuring that the rainforest stays protected.

ourpiece: This is us

Our concept

Our projects are successfully financed ahead of time and rest on a solid foundation. Together with experts, we carefully select patches of rainforest that are appropriate and then purchase them.
