This is personal: I have kids and I want grandkids and they should be able to breath and travel and love the world they live it. In order to clean up some of the mess that we’ve made to date, everything on the planet should be made from renewable resources using environmentally benign methods. Everything should be safe and replaceable without destroying the planet. So I am thrilled to be writing about Palm Done Right™.
WHAT IS PALM DONE RIGHT™?
The simplest description is that Palm Done Right™ (PDR) is a model for growing and producing palm products that is not destructive.
Currently, PDR includes 130 farmers (and growing) in Ecuador plus more farmers in Sierra Leone who own their own farms and work in cooperation with Natural Habitats. Natural Habitats provides programs to improve farming methods and tools, community programs, crop collection and processing and then markets and sells the oil and oil products worldwide for these farmers. In 40 years of looking at farms, this is the only truly sustainable project I’ve ever seen with multiple growers for this type of crop.
Natural Habitats has created the Palm Done Right to help you to learn more about what they are doing. This site is also a partnering tool that will allow you to link your customers to this valuable information and to support the PDR program individually.
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. I pasted below some of the pictures from my trip and short commentary. Also, go to the Palm Done Right and read a more complete story.
Join us in partnership with Natural Habitats and Palm Done Right™ and show the world how to grow and use this amazing ingredient the right way.
