AMAZONAS bark teas are collected from the wild and are harvested using sustainable methods. Only a small bit of the bark is removed so that the tree stays in tact. In this way the rainforests are put to good ecological use and not exploited or damaged.
The wood industry has in the meantime also discovered the Lapacho bark business and offers the bark for next to nothing on the international market. The precious Lapacho trees are felled mercilessly and without taking the interests of nature into consideration and the bark, which is just a waste product is sold for next to nothing. Only those who are willing to pay a reasonable amount for a valuable Lapacho tea support the preservation of the rainforests.
The main aims of our Brazilian supplier who harvests the bark teas with great passion and experience, is to save the trees to ensure its livelihood and to maintain the consistently high quality of its products.
