------------------------TAGUA NUT---------------------------------
Tagua nut, also know as vegetable ivory, is the seed of a tree similar to a palm...Its scientific name is Phytelephas Aequatorialis Macrocarpa. Due to tagua's properties in color, appearance, hardness and feel similar to those of natural ivory it is being substituted for the latter one. This helps in the depredation of elephants while at the same time keeps rainforests from being deforested.

Thousand of South Americans who harvest the tagua nut have jobs that depend upon keeping nearby rainforest lands standing. They sustainably harvest tagua nuts from the forest floor when the cabeza containing the nuts ripens and falls.
