#DYK that the production of gaharu tea can help save orang-utans and improve the livelihoods of communities? Traditionally, in the production of most gaharu-based medicines, perfumes and incense, the main component used is the tree’s resin. This resin is produced when the tree is damaged and infected by a parasitic fungus (Phaeoacremonium parasitica). In order to harvest this resin, the tree would need to be cut down. Rumah Manggat took a different approach altogether and are now producing gaharu tea leaves that are sustainable for the ecosystem as well as provide livelihoods to the communities. As this process does not require any gaharu trees to be felled, the trees will continue to grow and create a buffer zone for orang-utan habitat and Rumah Manggat’s farmland. The community is leading by example in creating a greener future!
