Pura Coco's facility is powered by 100% renewable energy and is certified carbon neutral by 100% Carbon Neutral®. Our carbon footprint is small.
Costa Rica is close to the United States, which means less energy is used to transport our product to market, especially compared to the coconut waters that ship from Asia, at least five times farther away than Costa Rica.
Pura Coco works directly with the coconut farmers of Costa Rica, never using brokers or middlemen that stand in the way of fair trade. We created a technical assistance program for our growers to train them on best coconut farming techniques and practices.
The reason we are not certified organic is because it is cost prohibitive for Costa Rica’s small coconut farmers to pay for the certification. However, these small independent farmers are using organic practices to grow and harvest their coconuts.
