Founder and owner, Cuban-American, Mama, lifelong eco-activist
My entire life I have had a passion for the environment. I always found ways to learn, protect, and document any part of nature I could get in touch with. It filled my spirit with a sense of connection to life outside of my small city while exposing me to the majesty of Mother Earth.
Then in 2018, I became a mom and dealt with post-partum depression (PPD) that focused heavily on climate doom. I was scared of the future I brought this human into. I didn’t have the time or emotional stamina to go out and protest, do clean-ups, and volunteer like I used to. I felt powerless, thinking that my impact only reached as far as I could walk to pick up plastic along the shore.
Low-waste living helped me step into my power again and heal. I felt a sense of hope knowing that I was filling my home with products and routines that didn’t negatively impact the environment. I was seeing my waste decrease and felt good knowing that the products my family is consuming are ethically made, non-toxic, and support small businesses. While I continue on this journey, I realize that even my imperfect sustainability makes a difference.
Mother Lover is my way of making low-waste living accessible so that everyone has the power to love our Mother.
