Todays Gift – COCONUT

Yeimi greeted us to her village of Cutivireni with a fresh coconut to quench our thirst from the tropical heat.

Climbing for “coco”, the Spanish for coconuts, is only for the brave as the tree is a favourite haunt of tarantula

For rainforest villages, the forest gives life

For rainforest villages, the forest gives life

For The Green Journey’s & Cool Earth’s partner villages, the forest gives everything:

It gives shelter.

It gives food.

It gives water.

It gives medicine.

And with Cool Earth and The Fuel Card Group’s support, it gives a livelihood, which means the forest is protected from illegal loggers.

This December, we’re celebrating these gifts from the forest with a special Christmas Countdown.
We’ll be celebrating a gift each day leading up to Christmas. From bows and arrows to clothing, we’ll
reveal how the forest provides for our partner communities’ every need.
