Lets save the amazon rainforest together
Our promise is clear and simple - we will plant one tree for every product you buy.
The Amazon is the biggest rainforest in the world. It is also the most diverse and abundant habitat anywhere on the planet, where life thrives. Rainforests play a vital role in the health of the planet – store and capture more carbon than any other habitat, cool our planet, provide medicine and help local people sustain their lively hood.
Sadly, the Amazon is facing deforestation at a tremendous pace. If it keeps up, in 40 years the Amazon rainforest may be no more than a savannah with millions of species left without home. But there is still time to change the situation. And together we can!
Imagine that 100 sold products will plant a forest of a 100 trees. Cool right?
Why save the amazon?
New species are discovered every week
10% of known species exist in the Amazon rainforest
25% of all western pharmaceuticals come from rainforest based ingredients, yet less than 1% of the trees and plants in the Amazon have ever been tested by scientists
Plants and trees from the Amazon provide more than 20% of the world’s oxygen
More than 80% of the world's food has its origins in the Amazon rainforest
How does planting trees help the amazon?
Protect wild habitat
Tambopata National Reserve is home to many rare species that have disappeared elsewhere in the Amazon due to poaching – including tapirs, spider monkeys, jaguars, and caiman. This is where our trees are planted.
support local farmers
Agroforestry provides long term income that is sustainable economically as well as environmentally. Trees help to do that.
Restore soil health
A big driver of deforestation in Peru is over-farming. By creating a mixed agroforestry system using cacao plants and native tree species, we can restore nutrients to the soil and prevent further degradation.
