Brazil nuts are an all natural product coming from the rainforests in Bolivia.
The brazil nut only grows in the wild, its home is deep in the Amazon Rainforest . The nuts develop inside large pods a lot like a coconut These pods are then collected when they mature and fall to the ground.
This trade represents a sustainable future for the rainforest. Families in Northern Bolivia can make a living by collecting brazils and other wild non timber forest products, a living good enough to provide medical care and university level education for their children.
