As the world struggles to contain the spread of coronavirus, the climate crisis still threatens us all. That’s why we need a green recovery from the pandemic – one that delivers better lives today, alongside progress towards a low-carbon future. Innovative climate solutions can help us reach both goals. That includes reliance on indigenous people and local communities to efficiently manage their resources.
AMAZ, ISA AND THE XINGU SEEDS NETWORK
2% percent of all Amaz sales go to the Xingu Seeds Network, a non-profit organization that promotes reforestation and agroforestry within the Brazilian Amazon. It is a social, ecological and community movement that collects tree seeds, and redistributes them to replant deforested areas of the Xingu River basin, bringing new agroforestry technologies to areas in need.
Xingu Seeds Network emerged from an initiative of the Instituto Socioambiental (ISA), a non-profit Brazilian civil society organization, founded in 1994, to promote integrated and inclusive solutions to social and environmental issues. ISA believes in the defense of social, collective and diffuse environmental and social rights & resources, cultural heritage, and human rights.
