That green bottle with the vaguely brazilian looking logo may feature an Amazonian fruit, but the address of the company that presented themselves as the source on the back it is in Southern California. I have no idea what, if any, real connection they have with Brazil.

I like the fact that they use Real money in Brazil.

During the National Green Party Convention in Denver at the end of June, 2000 I walked up to Marco Mroz from the Partido Verde Brasil (my understanding is that the guy is an elected Green) and said "We are the free trade organization for people that don't like the WTO." He agreed with me, so I walked away. I didn't want to waste any time on spin that could be misunderstood.My feeling is that as long as the South American Greens honor what I understand to be "Green Values," they will be OK.
