Here's How You're Helping Local Farmers Whenever You Buy This Buko Juice

Doing good has never been this refreshing.

( We're just a day away from the -Ber months, but we still kind of miss summer—or the part of it where we can lounge on the beach, taking in the sunshine while listening to the waves. You may not be able to leave on a tropical getaway yet, but one sure way to get you in the mood is buko juice, a beach staple. And while you can't always get a freshly cracked one from the neighborhood magbubuko, it's now easier than ever to get fresh coconut water from the nearest convenience store or grocery with Vita Coco. The best part is, you're helping local farmers!

Vita Coco just launched their Hope In a Coconut program, where they work together with local coconut farmers and ensure that they get properly compensated, not just monetarily but in other aspects. They provide livelihood programs where Vita Coco teaches farmers the best farming practices like alternating other crops with coconut and the best kinds of fertilizers to use. Hope In a Coconut is also active in building classrooms for farmers' children and providing scholarships for student achievers. They also provide microloans and financial literacy programs for farmers interested in branching out to other businesses.
