from trash to runway

Plant with me

I am planting a tree for every book sold, not just to compensate for the fact of printing a book, but also for increasing my impact in the world. I want to give each individual that buys my book this chance to be part of something bigger, and something that will actually have a huge impact in the most needed communities.

Besides helping local communities to achieve a better life and wellbeing, I want to create awareness to all my readers about the initiatives that are in our hand and can be life-changing to other people.

Advocating for a Sustainable Lifestyle

I am an individual promoting sustainability in the fashion and tourism industries. I promote brands committed to sustainability and help them also in achieving their goals in that matter.

I am a consultant who has helped hundreds of hotels guiding them into sustainable hospitality and I also co-founded the European Sustainable Hospitality Club. With my commitment, what I try to create is a better world to live in.

My Social Responsibility

On a professional note, I am the author of the Sustainability Strategic Plan 2017-2019 for the Hospitality Industry, created along with the City Hall of the City of Barcelona.

On a personal note, I have ditched the plane in all the travels that can be done by train. Working in London, Barcelona, Brussels and Paris, I haven’t taken one plane since 2018 for visiting these cities, and I have always used the rail alternative. Also, committed with the Barcelona City Hall, this 2020 I have decreased the consumption of plastic on a personal level.

One of the achievements I am more proud of is creating my book “From Trash To Runway”, which will help a lot of people to understand how to recycle unworn pieces they have in their closets.

Reforesting Haiti

In Haiti we are re-establishing a culture of tree planting with local communities and farmers. Making landowners self-sufficient through agroforestry and educating people about reforestation benefits.
