This project has been supported by P&G’s Herbal Essences brand in order to help small farmers recover and reforest degraded areas with native trees, increasing biodiversity and conserving important and vulnerable ecosystems, such as tropical montane cloud forest and the pine and oak woods of Veracruz.
