The Rainforest Alliance’s Green Gift Guide

With the holiday season fast approaching, it’s time to start looking for the perfect presents for your loved ones. The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal, the Rainforest Alliance Verified™ mark and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) logo are your assurance that goods and services are produced in a way that protect wildlife, water and soil, where workers and families benefit from good working and living conditions, decent wages, health care and education.
