OUR POLLUTED PLANET
Pollution is destroying our planet.
It is everywhere; in our rivers, oceans, land and air.
"Plastic is suffocating our earth. It has become one of the greatest environmental issues of our time."
"Myanmar desperately needs more electricity.
The question is how will we get it?"
As well as hydropower, fossil fuels like coal, gas and oil are being used to meet the energy deficit. These fossil fuels are bad news for people and nature. They are dangerous to harvest, cause deforestation, and pollute our air and water.
“A boom in industry has lead to a spike in air and water pollution."
Everyone has a role to play in solving this problem. Together, we can protect our planet from pollution.
"Myanmar has just become one of the latest countries to join the global fight against plastic."
"A few small villages across rural Myanmar are proving that Myanmar's future can be sustainably electrified."
"Sustainable practices in Myanmar’s growing industries will aid and protect the country’s development journey.”
FROM THE FIELD
UK AMBASSADOR TO BURMA DANIEL CHUGG IS A RANGER FOR A DAY
"Rangers are vital to the future of Myanmar", said British Ambassador to Burma H.E Daniel Chugg, who we work closely with on illegal wildlife trade issues. We went with him to one of our ranger camps to see first-hand what rangers do. Watch our video to experience what it's like to be a Myanmar ranger.
PRODUCING SUSTAINABLE RUBBER IN MYANMAR
In 2018, we took the world's leading tyre companies to Myanmar's rubber-producing region: Tanintharyi. Myanmar can become a leader in sustainable, natural rubber and this can be a great source of income for local communities. Watch our video to see how tyre companies can support and benefit from Myanmar's natural, sustainable rubber.
BAMBOO: CONSERVING FORESTS AND BUILDING HOMES
The villagers are in training; learning the basic skills of bamboo construction. Today they have left their daily work tending betelnut, rubber and fruit plantations to gather in Kyaik Phee Lan and learn this new skill.
