These trees would cover over 10 acres of Arpico’s extensive Sri Lankan rubber plantations. The daily collection of this amount provides a living for 8 rubber tappers. These 2500 rubber trees, account for the removal of 143 tonnes of Carbon Dioxde from the atmosphere very year. Arpico’s production of over 1,500,000 kilo’s of natural latex per year removes over 6,000,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the environment per year.
