FAIR TRADE, Palo Santo
For the Palo Santo we directly do business through a sustainable relationship with the local producer in the Andean region. They gather the wood themselves and ensure that they only use branches that naturally fall from the tree. Besides the wood does not smell if you would hack it. The locals believed that the smell and the spirit of the tree would not come in the wood if you hack it.

In addition, for every kilogram of wood which is sold 1 new tree will be planted.
Good working conditions and a good wage for the workers.
No impact on the environment.

Equal treatment between women and men.
