AVIVE Association

The women's association Vida Verde was created to enhance the natural richness of Amazonia and enable the local women to have a source of income. The association is supported by WWF-Brazil. It is composed of women aged between 16 to 70. They are at the head of the whole production process and have a mission of reforestation. They wish to improve the quality of theirs products and their techniques for the distillation of essential oils. These women produce cosmetics (soaps and beauty creams) and candles made with essential oils from native species such as rose wood.
