Sustainability – Saving Rainforests!! Corozo is derived from the nut of the Tagua Palm which grows in the equatorial rainforests of central America.  When the Tagua palm reaches maturity, it then goes on to produce its valuable tagua nuts for a century or more.  Each year, a tagua palm tree produces 15 large, spiny balls called ‘mococha’ which each contain around 20 small compartments in which some 6 nuts can be found. That’s 1,800 nuts per year in total. Given that these, in turn, vary in size, each tree, therefore, yields sufficient nuts for thousands of Corozo buttons each and every year!But as the ‘mococha’ fall to earth quite naturally when they are ripe, it means that there is no human harvesting or cutting of any part of the tree which blissfully lives on regardless to continue growing and producing nuts for years to come. The forest where these buttons start life is being maintained rather than destroyed, as the Tagua palm tree’s economic and sustainability features means that it diminishes any need to cut the forests down. So, when you buy these buttons you are indirectly helping to save the ancient rainforests!  Our wonderful English Supplier takes these nuts and turn and dye them into these amazing sustainable buttons
