Half the work is already done

We have the online shop, the contacts with communities and the organic products with the sustainability criteria and environmental responsibility.

Why the ecoshop?

Is the best way to offer Colombian articles made by low-income people, which were carefully elaborated in a respectful and environmental friendly manner, at the same time, we want to spread the conscious consumption of useful, ecological and artisanal products thus closing the circle of fair trade and sustainability.

Why Colombia?

Because Colombia is a country rich in biodiversity, one of the few mega-diverse countries in the world, which nowadays is being threatened by several problems; with these two reasons we find environmental solutions to these problems with our team through our projects.

Be part of this initiative

Help us to spread the conscious consumption of useful, ecological and handmade products, to promote fair trade in these communities, and to encourage them to be socially and environmentally responsible. The trade must be fair not only for the producers by giving them the right economical retribution, but also for the consumer, whom will get a unique and high-quality product. That’s why we focus on the development of vulnerable communities and the positive impact it generates. With the profits we can continue the projects thus closing the trade cycle.

Some projects we need to finance are:

COLOMBIA MEGADIVERSA (Documentary project about the biodiversity in Colombia)

ALDEA COLIBRI (Nature preservation area in the Andean region)

CONTACTO VERDE: Magazine (A guide for seekers of green initiatives and soul)
