The Amazon Rainforest is the world's greatest natural resource
– the most powerful and bio-actively diverse natural phenomenon
on the planet. Yet still it is being destroyed just like other
rainforests around the world. The problem and the solution to
rainforest destruction are both economic. Rainforests are being
destroyed worldwide for the profits they yield – mostly
harvesting unsustainable resources like timber, for cattle and
agriculture, and for subsistence cropping by rainforest inhabitants.
However, if land owners, governments, and those living in the
rainforest today were given a viable economic reason NOT to
destroy the rainforest, it could and would be saved. Thankfully,
this viable economic alternative does exist.
organizations have demonstrated that if the medicinal plants,
fruits, nuts, oils and other resources like rubber and chocolate,
were harvested sustainable - rainforest land would have much
more economic value than if timber were harvested or if it were
burned down for cattle or farming operations. Sustainable harvesting
of these types of resources provides this value today as well
as more long term income and profits year after year for generations
goal is to give back to the Amazon. We give a percentage of
our sales to increase concious to the rural communities in the
Amazon regarding the defloration.
