Amazon Reforestation Project
We are proud to partner with YULA Amazonian Energy Drink to support this important project in Peru.
YULA PLANTS TREES
YULA is a 100% plant powered energy drink, inspired by the power found deep in the Amazon Rainforest. Its name is rooted in an ancient tribal language combining the words for "tree" and "energy".
As part of its sustainable philosophy, YULA has committed to planting 250,000 trees in the Amazon.

DEFORESTATION IN PERU
Explore changes in Peru's forests on the interactive map. Pink is tree cover loss; solid color blocks are protected conservation areas.
This reforestation project is located in the "buffer zone" between Tambopata National Reserve, Bahuaja-Sonene National Park, and the city of Puerto Maldonado. This area has been identified as a high risk zone for deforestation due to unsustainable farming.
Planting trees here will help conserve habitat for the Jaguar and hundreds of other species living in the protected areas, while providing sustainable livelihoods to local people.
WHY PLANT TREES?
Protect animal habitat
Tambopata National Reserve is home to many rare and endangered species that have disappeared elsewhere in the Amazon due to poaching – like tapirs, spider monkeys, jaguars, and caiman.
Support local community
Our partners are working with farmers in Puerto Maldonado to establish a sustainable agroforestry system that will provide long term benefits, both economically and for the environment.
Restore soil health
A big driver of deforestation in Peru is over-farming. By creating a mixed agroforestry system using cacao plants and native tree species, we can restore nutrients to the soil and prevent further degradation.
Growing a sustainable future
Agroforestry provides long-term benefits for the land and the community. Our partners are working with a cooperative of local farmers in Puerto Maldonado to establish a sustainable agroforestry system using shade grown cocoa, native tree species, and productive timber species.
By sharing and adopting these new farming practices, local farmers can secure a better future for their families and their land.
The Story So Far
As part of their commitment to the Amazon, YULA will support the planting of 250,000 trees in this project.
