Alter Eco recently gathered like-minded natural products industry brands to protect 4.5 million trees in the Amazon with its agroforestry partner, PUR Project.

The collaborative effort is emblematic of what the earth—and the people who work the land—need from businesses. But is it too late? Listen to this episode of the Fodder podcast to find out.

We talk about the state of the Amazon, why Alter Eco is involved and why all businesses should engage in environmental efforts with:
