Organic Tagua Jewelry's mission is to promote the beautiful, eco-friendly, and 100% sustainable Tagua Ivory around the world. By doing so, we empower villagers in our founders' home village in Ecuador by providing reliable employment and a decent living wage. We have a very special and direct relationship with our artisans since one of our founders still lives in the village. Our artisans are our friends and neighbors, and we are proud to promote their work. Through direct equitable trade, our artisans are able to eat better, keep their children in school, and invest in their futures, while keeping their traditions alive and vibrant. The production of our products keeps these families, their local economy, and their beautiful natural environment strong today and for generations to come.
Our products also aid with preservation of the Amazon Rainforest and its wildlife, since the tagua nut provides shelter and nourishment to forest animals like agoutis and squirrels. The left over materials and byproducts of the tagua nut also help feed the livestock in the village. Additionally, the promotion and sale of tagua helps with the preservation of various mammals like elephants, whales, and walruses that have been slaughtered to near extinction for their ivory.
