July on our Social Media
July 1 – Plastic-free month
To start off #plasticfreejuly, we will be giving away a free tote bag with every physical sloth adoption package! Adopt a sloth this month to revive your own beautiful sloth tote bag
Plastic Free July was started in 2011 to raise awareness of the world’s plastic problem. It challenges you for the month of July to try a #plasticfree lifestyle
One of the simplest ways to do this is by avoiding single-use plastic bags when you go shopping by bringing your own reusable bag (like one our beautiful sloth tote bags). On average Americans use 100 BILLION plastic bags a year! These plastic bags are used for an average 12 minutes – and then take over 1000 years to break down
Or purchase your own sloth tote bag with 30% off and all proceeds go directly to sloth conservation! https://slothconservationshop.com/products/watercolor-hang-in-there-canvas-tote-bag
July 7 Chocolate Day
HAPPY WORLD CHOCOLATE DAY! 🍫 Today is definitely a day that we all enjoy celebrating and today we have some great news for you!! ❤️😍
If you love sloths AND chocolate, you don’t have to make that painful choice between enjoying chocolate cake and enjoying the presence of sloths in the wild.
You may be used to hearing how many food crops, from palm plantations to pineapples, threaten wildlife in tropical ecosystems. Large monocultures full of with pesticides and herbicides threaten the health of humans and wildlife alike while reducing and fragmenting the habitat that remains.
WELL this is different in the case of chocolate. Cacao can be produced in a way that actively promotes biodiversity and soil health and can play an important role in providing habitat for sloths and other wildlife! 🍫😍

Sloth Poop Dance?
Sloths are famous for their unusual and bizarre bathroom habits 🤭. Both two-fingered and three-fingered sloths will only defecate once a week, and for some strange reason they will only do it on the ground.
Descending from the safety of the canopy to the forest floor is not only energetically very costly, but it is also a suicide mission. So why bother?
