Being Eco-friendly
 
We take measures to minimize any environmental impact.
From 2017 we started to manage a tree farm in Nicaragua .
Therefore all the wood we use come from an environmental responsible source.
Madero wood (Gliricidia Sepium) is a native Nicaraguan tree. Madero it is not a species in danger of extinction, but is a fast-growing species, an environmentally friendly alternative.
To pack our products we use only recycled and certified cardboard made in Nicaragua.
