Are Monkeys Used to Collect Coconut Oil?
Find out whether monkeys are used to collect coconuts for Lucy Bee.

Random fact: Fair Trade is important. Lucy Bee is proud to be Fair Trade. With your continued support we’ve helped to;

  • Produce/build equipment and living essentials, such as water wells, solar lighting and phone technology (Philippines, India, Peru)
  • Ensure all workers (from the farmers to factory workers) are paid a fair wage and have contracts so they cannot be exploited (farmers receive a fair price for their coconuts)
  • No child labour and cruelty to or misuse of animals (monkeys are never used during harvesting of the coconuts that are used to make our coconut oil)
  • Supporting a more sustainable way of life, including basics such as food, medicine and schooling (the Solomon Islands)
  • To create an extended education centre for the children of the single mothers to teach them English, thus improve their future prospects (Dominican Republic)
