What Our Rainforest Alliance Certification Means
Less Water Pollution
All sources of contamination (pesticides and fertilizers, sediment, wastewaters, garbage, and fuels) are controlled.
Less Soil Erosion
Farms implement soil conservation practices such as planting on contours and maintaining ground cover.
Reduced Threats to the Environment and Human Health
Dangerous pesticides are prohibited. Agrochemical use is strictly regulated. Farmers use mechanical and biological pest controls to reduce toxicity and quantity of chemicals.
Wildlife Habitat is Protected
As deforestation is stopped, the banks of rivers are protected with buffer zones, critical ecosystems such as wetlands are protected and forest patches on farms are preserved.
Farm by-products such as un-marketable foliage are composted and returned to the fields as natural fertilizer. Other wastes, such as plastics, glass, and metals are recycled where possible.
Less Water Used
Water conservation measures are applied in washing and packing stations, housing areas, and irrigation.
More Efficient Farm Management
The certification program helps farmers organize, plan, schedule improvements, implement better practices, identify problems, and monitor progress.
Improved Conditions for Farm Workers
Ensure that workers get fair wages, decent housing, clean drinking water, sanitary facilities, and a safe and wholesome work area. Workers and their families have access to schools, health care, transportation, and training.
