Chris Mann

Chairman of the Gourd/CEO
Guayakí Sustainable Rainforest Products

Sebastopol-based Guayaki imports an energizing rainforest beverage called yerba mate throughout the US at stores like Whole Foods, Wild Oats and Trader Joe’s. Through the sale of its products, Guayakí sustains and restores 20,000 acres of Rainforest, supports various cooperatives and Indigenous communities and demonstrates that money does grow on trees. Mann earned a degree in economics at Harvard University and worked with the Bank of New York, which led to dissatisfaction with modern corporations and a journey of self-discovery.
