Reforestation: bring it on!

Deforestation is one of the most solemn environmental issues in Sri Lanka. The pearl shaped island had 49% forest coverage in 1920, yet this percentages has fallen by 26% in 2005. If we continue removing trees for agriculture or other means, the forest degradation in Sri Lankan in the future will be disastrous, causing flooding, landslides and soil erosion. It also threatens Sri Lanka’s biodiversity. Sri Lanka has 751 marked species of amphibians, birds, mammals and reptiles of which 21.7% are endemic, and over 3314 species of vascular plants, of which 26.9% are endemic.

Trees are the best known ‘tool’ to cool our planet, remove excess CO2, provide oxygen and have a cleaning effect on the air. In one year an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people. Trees absorb the excess carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, removing and storing the carbon while releasing oxygen back into the air.

Reforestation projects in developing countries empower local communities much more than traditional development aid, collecting seeds, growing seedlings in nurseries, transplanting and caring for the trees while they grow create long term jobs.


Mother Nature

We work with a group of volunteers who help us to plant new coconut palms and cultivate coconut palms. Part of our profit will be invested so that they can continue their work to plant trees, maintain forests and protect native, endemic and Ayurvedic plants. This also creates more awareness among the local population.



For our coconut water we use the coconut combined with Sri Lankan herbs, Sri Lankan Ayurveda and indigenous flavours. This is all done with the purpose of protecting the native and endemic plants and herbs, and to let the world know about their healing properties in food, drinks and cosmetics.
