Terramazonia Superplants directly encourages riverside communities in the Amazon to plant fruits and vegetables, guaranteeing the purchase of production at a fair price and offering a sustainable income option for these populations. Once these people have the option of selling their products, guaranteeing them an economic alternative for survival, the degradation of the native forest is spared, since most of the agriculture in the Amazon is carried out in lowland areas, naturally arable or small areas with deforestation allowed by law. We also give preference to purchasing products from organized cooperatives, which, in general, have clear rules for the preservation and conservation of nature in their activities and are able to share the profits of their operations with the entire community and members.

Partnership with the Mamirauá Institute

In order to directly contribute to and promote conservation actions in the Amazon Region, Terramazonia Superplants and Mamirauá Sustainable Development Institute celebrate a partnership agreement that provides the application of part of the profit obtained from the sale of the company's products in projects developed by the Institute. Among the main items of the agreement, it was established that for each product sold, Terramazonia Superplants will donate R$ 1.00 (one real) to the Institute, to strengthen initiatives for the conservation, development and management of natural resources carried out by the organization in the Amazon. In addition, Mamirauá Institute and Terramazonia Superplants agreed to discuss the possibility of bringing fair proposals to the advised communities for the supply of inputs from family farming and sustainable management of the company's products.

Project: I Recycle

Terramazonia Superplants is a partner of the Eureciclo Seal with the mission to increase packaging recycling in Brazil. Eureciclo's role is to use the technology to trace the recycling chain and certify that the packaging after use has in fact been recycled, in partnership with cooperatives and private sorting centers across the country. Eu Reciclo makes the environmental compensation of TERRAMAZONIA SUPERPLANTS packaging, that is, it allocates for recycling an amount equivalent to the volume of material we use to produce our packaging. These sorting centers are providing an environmental service for everyone, so there is nothing fairer than offering fair remuneration to those involved. With this financial investment, they are able to increase their production capacity and allocate even more waste that is generated every day for recycling.

And how can you consumers help? TERRAMAZONIA SUPERPLANTS is doing its part and ensuring that an equal amount of packaging is actually being recycled. Your role as a consumer is to help the recycling chain keep working!

1. Separate your waste: plastics, cans, glass, grease-free paper, styrofoam and carton packs must be disposed of in recyclable garbage. Give the materials a superficial wash before discarding to avoid attracting bugs, bad smell and contamination of the material.

2. Find out about days and times of selective collection in your neighborhood (on the website of your city hall, for example) and, if you do not have access to selective collection, look for the nearest cooperative that accepts the materials, or else deliver materials at voluntary delivery points, which can be found in supermarkets.
