World Regeneration

one ecosystem at a time

We're using regenerative agroforestry to combat climate change. Help us transform the chocolate industry and save the forests.

why agroforestry

Because of monoculture practices, 24% of global greenhouse emissions can currently be attributed to agriculture and forestry.

If we don't change farming practices from monoculture to agroforestry, within 60 years, healthy soil could disappear, destroying our planet's ability to regenerate.

If the global cocoa industry transitioned from monoculture to dynamic agroforestry, more than 2.5 gigatons of CO2 would be redirected from harming the atmosphere to regenerating the soil.

Farm with the forest

Agroforestry supports biodiversity and mitigates climate change. By planting a diverse mix of trees and shrubs around the cacao crop, it mimics an abundant forest ecosystem, creating long-lasting benefits for the planet.


Mission of alter eco foundation

We believe in the power of regenerative agriculture. A way of farming that's not only resilient to climate change, but actually has the potential to reverse it. A way of farming that respects our incredibly valuable soil and respects the human beings who grow our food. A way of farming that's not new, but has been used for centuries by indigenous people living in harmony with nature.

Our mission is to help farmers transition their crops to regenerative agriculture, and to make this model available to the entire cocoa industry and beyond, expediting adoption within global supply chains through advocacy and education.

Our Projects

Our projects are focused on 3 main initiatives:

  1. TRANSITION: Help farmers transition to regenerative agriculture to promote resiliency
  2. EMPOWER: Promote & create demand for farmers’ secondary crops to secure additional income
  3. EDUCATE: Prove regenerative farming model and make it available for widespread use
