AmazonLife designs, develops and markets sustainable products enriched with an added value.
The survival of tribal communities in the Amazon Basin depends to a large extent on rubber tapping activities; and rubber is actually the primary material used for the production of AmazonLife bag collections.
AmazonLife defends the traditions and culture of these autochthonous civilizations, promoting a sustainable lifestyle that strikes a balance with environmental protection.
Via the purchase of vegetable rubber, AmazonLife ensures work to several families of rubber tappers – known in the local language as “seringueiros”, from the name of the rubber tree, the “seringueira”. Rubber tappers spend six months every year in the heart of the darkness of the Amazon rainforest, where they extract latex and process it by hand. The production of vegetable rubber is therefore the fruit of hard work and patience of local populations, who see in this product a valid economic alternative and a precious instrument to preserve biodiversity in their territory and prevent the merciless deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest, which is about to collapse.
