Beautifully Hand Crafted Tagua Nut Carving
A Tagua Nut is a small nut grown on a palm tree in the rainforests of South America. Due to its close resemblance to animal ivory, it is hoped that this natural product will lessen the threat to the elephant from the ivory trade. The advantage of the tagua nut is that it is a renewable resource, unlike the elephant. In a single year, a tagua palm tree can produce up to 20 pounds of nuts, and continues to produce year after year. Additionally, using tagua in this manner helps to conserve the endangered rainforests of South America’s coastal plains. Your purchase helps protect elephants from the illegal ivory trade and helps to foster a respect for the rainforests, which are disappearing at an alarming rate.
