Yachana Rainforest Unity Bracelet
Order a Yachana Rainforest Unity Bracelet now for just US$10.00 and support micro-enterprise development at Yachana Technical High School!
Made by entrepreneurial students at Yachana Technical High School, the Yachana Rainforest Unity Bracelet is comprised of 10 different types of seeds and natural fiber called "pita" - all renewable materials found in the jungle. Each seed represents one of the 10 ethnic groups who reside in and are the protectors of the Ecuadorian Amazon. The groups may have different languages, cultures and histories, but what unites them is their home, the rainforest, with its great wealth of flowers, plants and creatures within, along with their desire to protect that wealth for future generations and the world.
Handicrafts are at the heart of each of these cultures and while styles and uses vary, all groups are accomplished in the arts of basket weaving, jewelery making, wood carving and more. The seeds of this bracelet are used across the Ecuadorian Amazon region in all types of handicrafts and have been specifically chosen to represent the forest and its people.
By acquiring your own Rainforest Unity Bracelet, you are supporting not only the conservation of natural resources but also the education of the present and future leaders of the region. Join with us as we fight to protect the rainforest and its inhabitants by creating sustainability through education. All proceeds from the sale of the bracelets go to support the micro-enterprise area of the High School by funding the purchase and distribution of products that bring environmentally-friendly solutions to people living at the base of the economic pyramid. These products include water filtration systems, small solar panels that come with rechargeable lamps and battery packs, reading glasses and much more.
Wear your Rainforest Unity Bracelet with pride and help us raise awareness of the ongoing economic and environmental challenges that currently plague the Amazon Rainforest and its inhabitants. We can all make a difference on an individual level that helps to change the world and life as we know it for a better, sustainable future for all. TOGETHER LET US UNITE AND CREATE A WORLD THAT WORKS FOR EVERYONE!
