Eco-Palms

FPC Asheville is proud to support ECO-PALMS again during the season of Lent.

What are Eco-Palms?

The palms are harvested in a sustainable manner that      protects the environment, the communities, and provides a fair income for palm harvesters.  Since the Eco-Palm communities commit themselves to learning new methods to reduce their impact on the natural forest and harvest quality palms, they increase their effective yield.

Why order Eco-Palms?

  • Eco-palms are purchased directly from harvesters at 5 to 6 times the normal payment per frond.
  • Your purchase of eco-palms helps improve standards of living and protect forests.
  • Eco-Palm harvests only waste 5-7% of material due to selective harvesting.
