Eco Alternative for Palm Sunday

The use of palm fronds on Palm Sunday creates a large demand, but conventional palm harvesting harms the environment as more fronds are cut than necessary. The United Methodist Committee on Relief joins ecumenical partners to offer a green alternative known as Eco-Palms.  

Eco-Palm farmers in Guatemala and Mexico incorporate better environmental techniques. More money goes to harvesters, and their communities flourish as a result.
