Rainforest Alliance: Sustainable Treats For your Family

frog

The Rainforest Alliance in Canada has teamed up with sustainability-minded companies in order to increase awareness of green purchasing options amongst Canadians. At the moment, over 500 products carry the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal in Canada.

Have you seen the products bearing the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal when doing your grocery shopping?  I was sent a selection of products with the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal to try and I loved learning about them and the fact that they are helping build a more sustainable planet by conserving biodiversity and transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behaviour. Products bearing the green frog seal – including coffee, tea, cocoa, juices, fruit and flowers – can be found in supermarkets, restaurants, coffee houses and hotels.

We are big coffee and tea drinkers at home and the Colombian Timothy’s Coffee, Muskoka Rostery Coffee and Yogi Chai Rooibons teas we received were big hits. Perfect for the cold winter!  If  you are a coffee/tea fan then be sure to check those out.  For those of you using Keurigs then check out the Buffalo Soldier Marley Coffee, an earthy dark roast coffee, all wonderful products that are Rainforest Alliance Certified. By choosing products with the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal, your choices can be healthy for you, healthy for the planet, and healthy for the communities who grow and harvest your favourite treats.

    It’s exciting to see people talking about rainforest alliance! When I studied abroad in Costa Rica, I learned all about Rainforest Alliance at my sustainable agriculture school. They are really doing great things, and I’m proud to buy the products with their seal.

    I am so happy that we have the Green Frog Seal on products to show us that they are produced in harmony with Nature and are safe to use. It is wonderful to see more and more companies be aware of the consequences of not being good stewarts of the environment.

    I’ve never noticed the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal, that’s good to know. I think it’s important that firms not only take from the environment but give back to it too.
