Guayaki Yerba Mate is the #1 seller of organic fair trade yerba mate, a caffeinated beverage traditionally consumed in Latin America. We are led by a mission to steward and restore 200,000 acres of South American Atlantic Rainforest and create 1,000 living wage jobs by 2020.
Why We're Green
Guayakí sources shade-grown yerba mate as a way to incentivize land conservation and financially support the communities that live and steward the South American Atlantic Rainforest. Working with indigenous yerba mate producers, Guayakí continues to play an important role in helping to defend one of the most biodiverse regions in the world. By stewarding the land, Guayakí also preserves essential ecosystem services, including carbon storage, climate stabilization, water filtration, and the regulation of local water cycles.
Committed to regenerating ecosystems and partnering with rural and indigenous communities in Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil, Guayakí is publicly dedicated to eight aspirations, including: regenerative agriculture, nurturing tradition, values-aligned partners, anti-recidivism, zero emissions, conscious leadership, sharing the gourd, and zero waste.
