Rainforest Alliance Coffees
RAINFOREST ALLIANCE COFFEES
The Rainforest Alliance, an international organization, reports that about 70 percent of global deforestation – the single greatest threat to tropical forests – is caused by agricultural expansion.
To help combat this, the Rainforest Alliance encourages farmers to grow crops and manage their lands following the three pillars of sustainability: environmental protection, social equity and economic viability. The Rainforest Alliance is committed to helping farmers improve in all three areas through their certification program.
Managers of certified farms are required to use biological or mechanical alternatives to pesticides whenever possible. When they determine that agrochemicals are necessary to protect their crops, they are required to choose the safest products available and use all available safeguards to protect human health and the environment.
By choosing Rainforest Alliance Certified™ agricultural products, you are supporting farmers and farm workers throughout the world who are working to improve their livelihoods and those of their families while protecting the planet.
