National Fair Trade Month: Rainforest Alliance Certification
Whereas Fair Trade Certification helps support farmers and workers in developing countries, Rainforest Alliance Certification ensures that farms around the world use sustainable agricultural practices to prevent deforestation, protect wildlife and curb climate change.
To earn Rainforest Alliance Certification, farms must meet strict sustainability standards set by the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) that incorporate environmental protection, social equity and economic viability.
Many of the farms certified by the Rainforest Alliance are able to do more than just sustain the natural environment and ecosystems around them. They are actually able to improve them by increasing the diversity of plant and animal life in the area.
