ECO NEWS Recycling The World Around Us Adopt an Animal Letters Contact Us Hello ECO NEWS , My name is Janine . I live in Costa Rica in the middle of a beautiful rainforest . Rainforests have tall trees . The weather is mostly warm and it rains a lot . In some rainforests it rains more than 2 . 5 centimeters every day of the year . Rainforests are important because they give the earth a lot of oxygen . When I was nine years old , my friend and I wanted extra money , so we painted rocks and sold them . Then we decided to do something important with the money . That’s when we had the idea to start saving the rainforest .  אל הספר
