We are a husband and wife team local to Las Vegas, Alberto is originally from Rio, Brazil and myself, Amanda grew up in Washington state. We started this company with a collapsible straw kit. As big travelers ourselves, we wanted to create something that was convenient enough to bring everywhere and begin to eliminate single-use plastic in our daily lives. For a lot of people, it starts with a straw and our kit also includes a spork! We LOVE working craft fairs, markets and events to get the opportunity to talk face to face with people about the importance of making simple swaps everyday to reduce our impact on the environment. It affects all us all.
We now have expanded to include a large array of products (and we are growing!!) that simplify our lives and reduce plastic waste— especially with products we use everyday.
We are not experts at plastic-free & sustainable living and face the same challenges that everyone else does, but we are SO incredibly passionate about our Mother Earth, sustainability, and educating those around us.
We try and test out all of our products before we sell them to make sure we only bring the very best quality so they last. We donate to ocean conservation and other environmental organizations too!
We live the lifestyle as best we can and are learning more everyday. Alberto was using plastic bags when I met him just a few years ago- we've come a long way from our former selves.
Swaps we’ve recently made in other areas of sustainability: going vegan, sharing 1 fuel efficient car, traveling less, and starting to compost! Everyone has the ability to do their part, and we hope that you will join us along our journey.
Let's make some real change together!
