In a couple of weeks I’ll be flying to Ecuador (solo, Mick will stay in Oz this time 😦 ) and although the main reason for this trip is to spend time with family and friends the other reason is a project that we’ve been working on for the last few months called Ayni 11×11.
This Project was born with the intention of sharing with more people how to make our doormats and to be able to create the biggest mat made out of plastic bottle lids which will share a message of unity, solidarity and positive change for our planet. We’ve put together a video explaining the process as well as many step by step posts at .http://mingasporelmar.org/
At the end of my visit we’ll be organizing an event to showcase the mat and create a space for all the NGOs working in Ecuador to come together as well as local eco friendly products and alternatives, entrepreneurs and all the people and organizations working in the country to make positive change. It’ll be a day of talks, ocean conservation, yoga, music, food and community.
There’s still a lot of work ahead but I’m pretty excited to try and make it all happen. I’m very lucky to have a great team of people in Ecuador with the same beliefs and motivation as me, helping along the way. We’ll keep you posted on how everything goes!
