COLLECTION

COLLECTION

To accurately reference the origins of consumer products, we collect samples from forests and agricultural land around the world with sufficient density to create a global map of samples.

ANALYSIS

ANALYSIS

Once collected, each sample is analysed to provide a unique chemical, genetic and anatomical signature that’s specific to its species and location. When complete, this information is added to our library.

COMPARISON

By applying the same analysis to consumer products, matches can be found within our reference library to identify what the product is and where it originated.

Build our library, protect the world's forests

Our challenge is to build a library of reference samples from around the world in sufficient detail to enable any consumer product to be tested against this to determine its origin. Many of our samples have to be collected from remote locations, so the funds we raise are needed to support collection expeditions on the ground as well as providing the collection kits themselves. All private donations go towards the many sample collectors working in each country to help us build this library.
