For over 30 years OroVerde - Tropical Forest Foundation promotes the preservation of tropical rainforests. Thereby nature conservation is going hand in hand with foreign aid, because the long term protection of rainforests only works with the help of local people. At the same time OroVerde addresses consumer issues and the question how our buying habits influence the environment and people's lives in rainforest regions. OroVerde is independent, non-partisan and non-profit. OroVerde is one of the first environmental protection organisations that received the coveted DZI Seal of Approval and has been awarded it ever since.
