The company has helped employ over 150 indigenous workers, and contributes directly to the sustainable livelihoods in the communities where they harvest. In fact, their Guyana plant gives away thousands of dollars daily in wallaba ends that select villagers – mainly women – in Yarrowkabra use for their successful coal burning business.
