Why we started

We are a new company that feels passionately about the importance of the environment and nature. We thought no better way to show this than to conserve the Amazon rainforest with the guidance of  indigenous Ecuadorian people. We purchase guayusa grown by Ecuadorians who grow guayusa in small areas with other native trees, food crops, herbs and medicinal plants. By growing in this way without the use of artificial pesticides or fertilisers around 40% more biodiversity can be maintained.

Our Ecuadorian farmers are paid a fair price upfront to standards that exceed Fairtrade, this has increased their income by an average of 30%.
