It is very important to SOS Primates that we share our values, so that you get to know us better and also to try and counter the environmental damage our planet is suffering. WE CANNOT WAIT ANY LONGER.
SOS Primates is committed to promoting the recycling and reuse of all the material we use.
paper, avoiding its use as much as possible. Where it is impossible to avoid using it, reused/recycled paper is used for the mailing of letters (including the envelope) and notices. Reused/recycled paper is also used for courses and training days organised by the association for those who wish to take notes.
plastics. In our activities we avoid its use as much as possible, and when we wrap our merchandise we always use recycled plastic, or wherever possible, paper or cardboard packaging. On courses and training days we avoid purchasing packaging as much as possible and the plates, cups and cutlery we use are made of washable materials.
food. At the events we organise we try as much as possible to buy locally and responsibly, for example preparing our own coffee and snacks, avoiding the use of palm oil (or where necessary using oil from sustainable sources), and offering vegetarian and vegan food, while not forgetting the various food intolerances.
chain of favours. SOS Primates believes in humanity, empathy and altruism. For this reason, when we have to make a delivery somewhere, we ask if one of our acquaintances, family members or friends can help us if for some reason they are going in that direction. With this chain of favours, which is not free of work for those organise or participate in it, we’ve saved hundreds of euros for the charity through free delivery and transport. If you are a courier or you’re going to be travelling and you want to help us, get in touch via our email firstname.lastname@example.org
Another example has been the response we’ve received when we’ve asked for prizes for our “soslidarity” raffles, or for suitcases to transport uniforms for the primate keepers at African rescue centres and sanctuaries. The response completely exceeded our expectation and in the end we had to say that we couldn’t accept any more.
Will you commit to the values of SOS Primates?
