Eco-Palms for Palm Sunday

January 26, 2011

Purchasing Eco-Palms benefits the environment, empowers small-scale farmers and creates local jobs while helping rural communities prosper. The harvesting of Eco-Palms preserves the vitality of forests in places like Guatemala and lessens the risk of these forests from being converted into agricultural fields.

 
Buying Eco-palms directly from the grower eliminates the need for a contractor and allows for more money to stay within harvesting communities. It also increases employment opportunities for women and helps them support their families.

Palm Sunday is April 17. Why not purchase your Eco-Palms today? Visit
www.ecopalms.org for facts and purchase opportunities. The deadline for ordering Eco-Palms is late March.
