    Protecting the rainforest - that's the goal of ourpiece. Our initiative was brought to life in 2014. The Swiss company's aim is to take on long-term global responsibility and contribute to the protection of the climate and rainforests by initiating concrete efforts.

    ourpiece takes the direct route to protect the rainforest. We bought patches of rainforest and work with local partners to protect these spaces from deforestation and clearing. We do this because we want to protect threatened animal and plant species and preserve the living environment of indigenous people.
