You may not know this but the condom production in Brazil may rescue our rainforests. The Brazilian government is one the largest buyers of these rubber contraceptives, and thus are switching to sustainable rubber production, which will help to save the environment from deforestation.

This incentive from the Brazilian government will promote sustainably grown latex from the rainforests' plants and trees and will also provide revenue for hundreds of families. So next time you open that foil packet, remember you are taking part in saving the world in so many ways!
