Our TAGUA custom products are handmade from sustainabley harvested TAGUA nuts- collected after they fall to the groud, so the palm trees are not harmed.
The use of TAGUA, and it's harvesting, provides an eco-friendly alternative to the use of the Tropical Rainforest's resources, thus helping in protecting and saving the Rainforest that have been tilled and burned to be used as land for cattle and illegal plantations.
