THE WILD RUBBER

OUR FIGHT AGAINST DEFORESTATION
For its production, Piola sources wild rubber directly from the heart of the Peruvian Amazonian forest.
It is in the Madre de Dios region that the "shiringueros", the rubber tree bleeders, collect the latex by taking the sap from the tree trunks.
These producers have a right of exploitation, granted by the State which allows them to protect their environment and part of their source of income.
By buying rubber at 5 times the local market price, we actively contribute in the development of their know how, quality of life and work, whilst limiting deforestation.
