We can''t grow food without water and we won''t have water without forests. Run-off from agriculture, whether its biological (like manure), or agrochemical, can poison waterways. The sustainable agricultural practices that we promote offer simple, practical solutions, such as maintaining big buffer zones, preferably planted with native trees, between farm fields and waterways. #RainforestAlliance #ClimateSmart #SustainableAgriculture #WaterIsLife #FollowTheFrog

Chocolate is a multi-billion dollar industry, yet most of the world''s cocoa farmers live in poverty. To make sure we''re helping to improve the livelihoods of the cocoa farmers we work with around the world, we studied the successes, and the challenges, of our cocoa certification program -- including two independent studies in West Africa that found Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa farms retained and/or replanted shade trees at a significantly higher rate than non-certified farms. #RainforestAlliance #Cocoa #ClimateSmart #FightDeforestation #FollowTheFrog
