›How 40,000 Brazil nuts are collected deep in the Amazon rainforest
business09:21How 40,000 Brazil nuts are collected deep in the Amazon rainforestBrazil nuts are one of the most sustainable nuts. They're not grown on farms — they're collected in the ...rainforest after they drop naturally off wild trees. While the nuts support Indigenous tribes' livelihoods, collectors have a tough job. They have to hike deep into the jungle, avoiding deadly falling nuts and wildlife, all to haul 100-pound loads back out. And now their industry is at risk because of low prices for their nuts and illegal clear-cutting of the rainforest. We visit the Apiaká tribe in Mato Grosso, Brazil, to see how they're using Brazil nuts as a weapon against deforestation.
