    Café Selva Norte: the environmental project in Peru you should support to reduce your carbon footprint

    Deforestation is one of the main causes behind the emission of greenhouse gases in Peru and growing coffee under full sun, a practice which became common after the leaf rust crisis in 2013, is one of the contributing factors. To fight this, agroforestry project developer Ecotierra created the Café Selva Norte initiative. Read our interview with Guillaume Nadeau, Deputy CEO of Ecotierra Canada, to learn how the project supports cooperatives through microcredit, seedlings and technical assistance to farmers so they can transition from full sun to a healthy shade-grown crop, which will also improve their yields and double their income.
