The EcoProducts Foundation was setup to run non-profit projects in the areas where baobab fruit are harvested. In addition to buying fruit directly from rural harvesters, the Foundation supports education of pre-school children, growing of baobab trees, research projects and community engagement.
Baobab Tree Guardian
In November 2017 ProTec Botanica sponsored a Baobab Guardian to plant and look after a Baobab tree.
The tree that we are sponsoring was planted by Julia Rambasa in Tshipise Sagole Village, South Africa. The tree will be measured twice a year so that we can track its progress until it reaches 3 meters in height. By sponsoring the tree, we demonstrate our commitment in bringing sustainable materials to the markets
