Reforestation in Peru

By / December 12th, 2012

A memorable trip to one of Alter Eco’s wonderful partner cooperatives, Acopagro, brought many stories and experiences back with the team to San Francisco. Team members visited the co-operative this year not only out of routine check-ins and visitation with the farmers, but also to contribute to the reforestation project with Pur Projet.

Non-GMO Verified

Alter Eco has always chosen the highest quality, sustainable ingredients for its consumers. We believe that GMOs are not compatible with our vision of quality or respect of the environment and producers. According to the Non-GMO Project, “Over 80 percent of all GMOs grown worldwide are engineered for herbicide tolerance. As a result, use of toxic herbicides, like Roundup, has increased 15 times since GMOs were introduced.”

In March I traveled to Bolivia to visit our partner cooperative ANAPQUI, as I do every year. Besides their amazing ability to grow and cultivate something in such a desolate landscape, I am always fascinated how our friends lives on the Altiplano revolve around this resilient seed, and how they incorporate it in their daily diets!
