Can you imagine saving the Amazon Rainforest with a debit card?
But why? The Amazon covers 6% of the planet's surface and occupies 40% of the territory of Latin America and the Caribbean, its rivers discharge approximately 20% of the world's fresh water, and its unique cultural diversity, represented in the more than 385 indigenous peoples that inhabit it are a clear indicator that this territory must be protected.
The saddest thing is that despite being an ecological sanctuary and source of life for the entire planet, the Amazon jungle lives in constant risk. Deforestation, fires, alteration of the ecosystem, are just some of the threats due to which this habitat is slowly disappearing.
In 2020 alone, we lost 2.3 million hectares of forest, an area greater than the total extension of a country like El Salvador.
That is why Banco de Bogotá has also decided to contribute its bit to protect the most important tropical forest on the planet and the ancestral communities that inhabit it.
What is the Banco de Bogotá Amazon Debit Card?
It is a debit card with which you can contribute to the protection of the Amazon and the indigenous communities that inhabit it by donating 1% of the value of the purchases you make with your Amazon Debit Card*. Also, Banco de Bogotá will donate too! Well , for every 2 trees planted by customers of the Amazon Debit Card, the bank will donate one.
In a few words , it is a Debit card with which you can contribute to the planting of trees with the purchases and transactions you make, because you will donate 1%! Clients of Banco de Bogotá will thus be able to participate in the reforestation of the Amazon every month, learn about the information of the community and the people who will plant the trees donated by the clients and the bank, and see the forest that will grow over time. and help from all the people who are encouraged to have their Amazon Card.
Requesting your Debit Card is very simple , you can go to one of the Banco de Bogotá branches or through the website . Once you have it, use it for your purchases and together let's change the reality of indigenous communities and the most important ecological sanctuary on the planet**.
This is how , together with Banco de Bogotá, a subsidiary of Grupo Aval, we contribute to the reforestation and restoration of the Amazon rainforest , the most important ecosystem in Colombia and the world.
