With LEEF YOU PROTECT THE RAINFOREST
EVERY PLATE YOU BUY AUTOMATICALLY PROTECTS
1 M² OF ENDANGERED RAINFOREST
In long-term cooperation with the World Land Trust (WLT), we use part of the income from every single palm leaf plate to buy rainforest . After the purchase, there is a ten-year protection plan for each parcel of land to guarantee that no illegal logging takes place. This prevents other parties from buying the land and clearing the forest.
GUARANTEED IMPACT THROUGH A DIGITAL & TRANSPARENT PROCESS
We price in rainforest protection. Thus, we create an electronic chain of custody and guarantee 1 m² of protection per palm leaf product, which is traceable at any time. In this way, we close the cycle of our palm leaf products and give something back to nature to symbolically promote the origin of our products.

CURRENTLY YOU ARE HELPING RAINFOREST
TO PROTECT IN ARGENTINA
The Chaqueña region is the second largest forest area in South America, of which 60% is in Argentina. Unfortunately, less than 5% of the original forest in the province of Córdoba has been preserved. Your contribution helps to connect two critical areas with the "Corridor Chaco Tagua" - to protect the Chaco habitat (see pictures). This secures the biosphere of the globally endangered Chaco Peccary, 229 species of birds, 35 species of mammals & 43 species of amphibians & reptiles.
WE HAVE ALREADY PROTECTED OVER 280'000 M²
With previous projects, we are protecting the forest from a variety of dangers
overexploitation of the forest
unplanned progress of urbanization
indiscriminate logging for wood and charcoal production
Example: The lot of land “El Pantanoso” in Argentina was converted into a protected area for endangered flora and fauna with our help. The area was visited and checked by us.
