How should I care for Tagua products?

Being a natural product, Tagua does react to the elements. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, extreme temperature variations, water or steam should be avoided. You should remove your jewelry before bathing or swimming (especially the rings). Tagua shouldn't be soaked in water (liquids in general) or oils, as it could crack or split. Jewelry can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

How hard is a dried Tagua seed?

Tagua (or Vegetable ivory) is remarkably dense, with a rating of roughly 2.5 on the scale of mineral hardness. [Compare this rating with 3.5 for a copper penny and 10 for diamond.]

How is Tagua sustainable?

Tagua grows naturally in a rainforest environment, rather than a plantation. The seeds are then harvested as they fall to the ground. This allows the Tagua trees to provide valuable habitat to animals and also assists with rainforest preservation by preventing the cutting of trees for farming or cattle. Renewed trade in Tagua seeds protects endangered rainforests in Ecuador, Colombia and Peru. According to a Massachusetts-based environmental group called Cultural Survival, natural rainforest products such as vegetable ivory can generate up to five times the income of banana plantations and cattle ranches.

How does Tagua help elephant protection?

African elephants and the South American rainforest have something in common: they are both being eliminated from the face of the earth at an alarming rate. Unlike elephants which must die for their precious ivory, tagua palms are a renewable resource; as long as their native habitat is preserved and sufficient seeds are left to perpetuate the palms. A single female tagua palm may produce up to 50 pounds of seeds in a year, that's roughly the amount of ivory in an average African elephant tusk.

Why is Tagua organic?

Tagua is grown in the rainforests of South America, an environment free of pesticides and foreign chemicals.
