Drink Java Mate, Protect 2 Rainforests!
Using the same principle of bringing a rainforest product to the North American marketplace to create demand that will drive conservation, Guayakí has extended its product line to include Java Mate. Java Mate marries two powerful rainforest trees: yerba mate and ramón to create a healthful, energizing mate blend that tastes like coffee and feels like mate.
Ramón is a nutritious nut rich in vitamins and proteins. Even though it has sustained Mayan civilizations for centuries, the people in Central America had not been harvesting and selling this commodity that falls to the rainforest floor each season. Gathering Ramón is an enjoyable process and is preferred to other work because its less physically demanding. It is also an activity in which both women and men can participate allowing for more family time. Java Mate is a product that honors the local people and brings much needed income to the poorest rural communities.
Guayakí has been instrumental in creating the demand for an infrastructure for importation and production of ramón with the promise to maintain the same social justice standards integral to the Guayakí business model.
