I am an English teacher. For better or worse, we teachers go through an absurd amount of paper. If it's not an essay, it's reading comprehension questions. If it’s not questions, it’s a plot diagram. We use lined paper, construction paper, copy paper, sticky notes, index cards, and many boxes of Kleenex. It seems that, at least in my job description, there's just no avoiding this raw material whose production can be so destructive to the environment.
This month in our series on Native American Tribes, we are visiting the Cofán of Ecuador and Colombia They are one of the oldest surviving native people of Ecuador’s Amazon. Today, they number about 2,000 and live both in Ecuador and Colombia. The Cofán consider themselves guardians of the rainforest and are very instrumental in the preservation of the Amazonian rainforest.
