Darién Initiative

We're proud to donate a percentage of every sale to the Darién Initiative.

For 30 years the Darién Initiative has helped the indigenous people of the Darién Gap, Panama by: 

- Buying agricultural equipment to teach the locals how to use machinery
- Creating a local fair market where townspeople can buy and sell produce
- Establishing green houses to sustain a diet consisting of more vegetables
- Reforesting the Darién gap with a program that will plant the Genipa Americana tree in areas previously deforested
- Building a town center for kids to go after school
- Helping with natural disaster efforts, which occur more and more often in the Darién Gap due to deforestation and farming


    Why the  Darién Initiative?

    The ink we use is derived from a fruit that primarily grows in the jungles of the Darién Gap, Panama.  This area is home to the Embera-Wounaan and Kuna indians, who still rely on their local forests for survival. The Darién Initiative ensures that we're sustainably harvesting their fruit and giving back to their community.
