When you start believing in yourself,
when you build a coherent, closed-cycled eco shoe project,
when you are responsable of a good quality product that also helps the enviroment,
when the more you distribute eco shoes around, the more you help clean the planet,
when you create an opportunity network for a vast group of people and yourself,
when your children watch you every day working for a good cause,
when you realize that this is not just a project but the future of new generations ( including your children's)...
... now that's when you understand what it feels like to embrace PEACE in every step
Within each of us we have an infinite desire to do something meaningful on this planet.
Some… want to be famous, others… want to solve hunger and last but not the least there is people who wants to achieve world peace.
I truly believe that everybody is called to a great mission that benefits others. And if we venture to find out the answer … it will come :)
This is how Eco Bambas started. Through the adventure with my partner Johannes four years ago. Without any certainty and with only three months of sharing we decided to go and live together in Alicante, Spain . That's how we began to write the first ideas about this eco-project that we had just invented. We looked for funding at Spanish universities and eco-villages ... and no one could support the project.
From there... no job / no money. We sold every super technologic gadget we got from our parents's presents and moved to Costa Rica, thinking that we had found a way to finance the project through a Costa Rican eco-village. Aaaand, at the end we discovered that only we could create the opportunity "from scratch" to turn this simple idea that we had into a real committed company.
Since then, we have worked 24/7 for four years and today we see each other, feel and project the great movement that continues to grow and complement itself. Along the way, we have become parents of two, human beings increasingly responsible, people who seek to be more and more coherent between what they speak and what they do ... finally sincere professionals and effective executors.
We sell shoes that clean the planet by avoiding the burning of truck and car's tires. And also, by promoting an internal recycling economy between suppliers and producers: "what is waste for you can be our essential raw material". We have created what we call ECO-TRUEQUE
Every day that passes by I fall in love with my "business & love partner". Together we've discover the innumerable opportunities behind this noble eco-project. Together we've overcome challenges, living and learning. Many harsh and intense moments that in the end we laugh out loud because we know that we are creating the best stories for our children and future grandchildren. The best bravery example...
And so far I can tell you ... the adventure continues!
Today we export to Canada, Costa Rica, Spain, Austria and Mexico. Some others are soon to be real in Germany, Finland and the Caribbean islands.
Here in Guatemala a noble craftsman and his team are in charge of manufacturing each shoe sold. And another noble businessman gives us space in his empire to connect, sell and create more eco-friendly products that we know are already unprecedented successes.
We are blissful, fortunate, abundant and high-grade DREAMERS.
We continue walking forward step by step ...
