We started Harmless Harvest® to make the most amazing coconut water in the most ethical way possible. It’s a work in progress, but we’re committed to growing our standards and living up to our name.
Speaking of growing, we’ve got a bustling HQ in Oakland, plus 133 team members (and counting) living and working in Thailand, where the bulk of our operation takes place. Staying close to the ground keeps us invested in every step of the process and every community along the way.
In order to realize our vision of a future where the climate impact from coconut agriculture is net positive we know we need real action. That's why, in 2020, we partnered with the Danone Ecosystem Fund and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) to launch the Regenerative Coconuts Agriculture Project (ReCAP), which seeks to develop and implement a regenerative agriculture model for coconuts in Thailand. This effort will move us beyond the standards of organic farming and into a model where farmers realize better personal and planetary outcomes by transitioning to regenerative agriculture practices.
Fair for Life certification is a third-party certification process that ensures our commitment to social accountability and fair trade. For us, this means being diligent in our practices and considering everyone — and everything — we affect.
For the communities where we farm and bottle, our commitment translates to new school uniforms, water filtration systems, and mobile medical trucks for preventative healthcare like check-ups and screenings.
