Workers Processing Fair Trade Eco-Palms

University of Minnesota Partnership

Lutheran World Relief partners with the University of Minnesota Center for Integrated Natural Resources and Agricultural Management (CINRAM).

CINRAM is working together with the Rainforest Alliance TREES program and Smartwood to certify palms harvested from the forests of Mexico and Guatemala for sale to congregations in the United States and Europe.

Partnerships with wholesaler Continental Floral Greens and distributor Hermes Floral have enabled Eco-Palms to be distributed throughout the United States for Palm Sunday. In addition, partnerships with faith-based organizations such as Lutheran World Relief (LWR), United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and the Presbyterian Church of the United States (PCUSA) have helped expand awareness of the Eco-Palms program.
