The world is reaching a point where it is already impossible to deny that our planet is wounded. We are destroying our environment and depleting our natural resources at an alarming rate, which compromises our very existence as a species, and that of countless other species.
But nature is wise and generous with those who know how to hear it. We can find in nature itself alternatives to supply the same needs that we now satisfy by destroying our environment. One of these amazing alternatives is a plant called Tagua.
This plant, also known as ivory nut or vegetable ivory, is the seed of the Phytelephas Macrocarpa palm, which grows in the tropical rainforests of the Pacific region, especially in Panama, Colombia and Ecuador.
Tagua has many commercial applications that could preserve other natural resources, especially in the textile industry. In addition, the preservation of Tagua is important for the conservation of the natural environments where it is found. In the following video, you can learn more about this topic. We’ve added a transcript of the video in both English and Spanish to make it easier to understand.
