  • Description


    Hi my name is Julio, i'm the founder of a project that has being running for 4 years now and has the vision of reducing plastic packaging here in Guatemala. We are in the Zero Waste movement. We sell in different areas in Guatemala and also online through social media. We deliver with our green bicycle system in the metropolitan area of Guatemala City.

    In the last years our project has being introducing wellness products, we work with natural toothpaste, natural tooth tablets, natural mouthwash, bamboo toothbrushes for adults and kid.

    Our project has its own volunteer house, where we provide a kitchen and private rooms with bathroom. We are looking for digital nomads that can help us build our blog, with contents of different categories; Holistic Food, Herbs and Medicinal Plants, Yoga, Meditation, Natural Products and Guatemala's best places to visit.

    We are based in La Antigua Guatemala, in a small town called San Juan del Obispo.

    We are located 3km away from downtown Antigua, in a small town called San Juan del Obispo. I go donwtown everyday in car/motocycle to deliver products and work. Also expect to travel to San Marcos La Laguna in Lake Atitlan to deliver products. It is very peaceful here with a nice view of the 3 volcanoes surrounding the town (1 volcano es active! and makes beautiful lava eruptions that can be seen from the house). You can spend your free time visiting downtown Antigua wich is a very special place to walk around. If you want to hike/climb volcanoes we can help you with that too!
