Wild Rubber

Only in the Amazon rainforest rubber trees grow wildly. Rubber tappers collect the latex, which is the sap of the trees, in the deepness of the rainforest. 

 

The trees can be productive for generations. Each family helps to conserve between 360 and 500 hectares when they are able to make a living from rainforest products. Rubber tappers are considered guardians of the Amazon rainforest.

Guardians of the Amazon rainforest

Only in the Amazon rainforest do rubber trees grow wildly.

 

Rubber tappers collect the latex, which is the sap of the trees in the deepness of the rainforest.

 

The trees can be productive for generations. The latex is brought to a production unit near the family’s house where the liquid will coagulate into rubber.

 

The production method is easy, clean, and smoke-free. Each family helps to conserve an average of 360 hectares when they are able to make a living from this rainforest product.

 

Because of this, rubber tappers are considered guardians of the Amazon rainforest.
