Vegetable Ivory is the seed obtained from a palm tree called Hyphaene Phytelephas found in the Amazonian rain forest. It is the only 100% sustainable alternative for elephant ivory given that its colour and hardness are extremely similar to ivory. Its use stimulates the economies in South America & provides an alternative to cutting down the rain forest for farming, and prevents elephants from being killed for their tusks.
