Zapallo Verde (Quito – Ecuador)

The co-operative El Zapallo Verde is a responsible consumption network in Quito. Four years ago, a small group of consumers began to seek a way to buy hand-made and agricultural products, directly from the organic producers of the surrounding area. Today there are 300 members who, through a website and once per week, buy from the four farmers and eight organic producers of the network. They also organise campaigns to raise awareness amid consumers, workshops on agro-ecological agriculture and visits to the producers’ farms.
