Veja has been buying organic cotton directly from farmers in Brazil and Peru for over 14 years. The cotton is grown without any harmful pesticides or fertilizers, and many farmers have adopted agro-ecological methods, which improves soil health each season.
Natural rubber is harvested from wild-growing trees, providing a livelihood for locals and safeguarding tracts of rainforest from deforestation.
