Quotes

"Coffee production is only environmentally sustainable when water is used efficiently and polluted water from the wet-mill process is treated. Local ecosystems do not have the capacity to clean the large amounts of contaminated fluids" said Han De Groot
"There was not a lot of learning happening in that time, so the offer of ethics is a great alternative."
...ecosystems do not have the capacity to clean the large amounts of contaminated fluids," said Han De Groot, executive director at UTZ Certified. "Rural communities and coffee production depend intrinsically on a ready supply of fresh water. So if we want to talk about coffee produced in a sustainable manner then wastewater must be treated when released into the environment" he concluded
"There are acute reasons like land being used for agricultural purposes, deforestation and hydrological interference. There are chronic reasons like water quality getting worse and the introduction of foreign species on plants. Sewage is often left to rot in the rivers and water bodies without processing. All these factors make a difference to the bird population in adjoining areas. Moreover, areas surrounding wetlands, called buffer areas, are nesting and roosting sites for the birds, but have shrubs which are getting eroded" said Mahesh Ghanekar, a bird-watcher
