Sustainable rice from Sri Lanka
Towards a world of green.
Go organic, Be healthy, Be Responsible
“Eco-Friendly” is more sustainable and healthier; for the environment and farm workers, and often for you and your family.
We are a social enterprise promoting sustainable development in Sri Lanka. Established in June 2012, we are devoted particularly to the most vulnerable, neglected and forsaken people, regardless of age, gender, race, religious belief and political opinion.
Ecowave (Guarantee) Ltd grows Suwendel–Heirloom rice exclusively locally and in compliance with Friend of the Earth sustainable agriculture criteria. Suwendel rice (Oryza sativa) is an indigenous organic aromatic white rice variety cultivated with traditional methods in the southern lowlands of Sri Lanka. Rice is supplied only by small holder farming families, respectful of the livelihood of rural communities. Farmers are committed to and trained on sustainable agricultural practices.
Rice has been grown for centuries in the area and rice paddies have become part of the landscape. Pesticides and fertilizers are not used and water and soil are not contaminated.
“Sustainability is the milestone of our mission, as we aim to conduct our activities in an environmentally and socially responsible way”, states Mr. N. M. Mohamed Nizar – Managing Director of Ecowave. “Friend of the Earth certification is an important confirmation of our commitment.”
