NUX is our passion project that came to fruition after our founders struck up a conversation with a family of brazil nut farmers while traveling in Bolivia. Intrigued by the family's efforts to maintain sustainable farming practices and conserve the Amazon rainforest, we decided to join forces and help them with their noble mission.
The Amazon: A South American Treasure
The Amazon, home to several million species of insects, plants, and birds; hosts new discoveries in plant and wildlife every year - making it the world's richest and most-varied biological reservoir.
However, this South American treasure faces devastating deforestation caused by the tolls of modern farming and population growth.
Introducing NUX Organic Brazil Nuts
NUX Organic Brazil Nuts are a new way to snack for the health of your body and the vitality of the Amazon.
We'll be donating 1%of all NUX profits to reducing the deforestation of the Amazon. Our donation will support efforts aimed at keeping the Amazon untouched by increasing agricultural sustainability, enhancing traditional farming practices, and promoting fair pay for farmers.
Health Benefits to Go Nuts About
Our nuts are harvested in Bolivia from towering Brazil Nut trees (reaching up to 150ft tall). A family of sustainable farmers pick the fallen nuts pods, crack em' open, and dry them to bring out their unique flavor and taste.
