Illipe against deforestation
Illipe trees grow in rainforests which are continuously threatened by deforestation, destroying biodiversity and the habitat of orangutans. In the rainforest, a choice can be made between picking up illipe nuts and using more forest products from the intact unaffected rainforest, or slashing it to make room for monocultures. In other words, using our Illipe Butter can preserve the rainforest. What conscious choice would you make?
By wild picking illipe seeds from the forest floor and turning it into a butter locally, employment and income from the local people is generated. By increasing the economical value of the rainforest, they have an incentive to preserve it.
It’s important to us to support initiatives that help local communities. If you also value the story behind our Illipe Butter, fill in the below contact form and we will send you more information.
