Interview with the founder of Sustainable Booth

Waste is out of fashion. Plastic is slowly but surely being banned. And conversations and initiatives to reduce waste are emerging all over the world. One of them is Sustainable Booth they offer sustainable and eco-friendly products that will make it easier for you to reduce waste.

We have to reuse the waste we produce as much as possible. Most of the packaging and plastic are products that you only use once, such as a plastic bag if you buy a croissant and straws. You usually throw them away after using them. Instead of plastic bags you can use cotton bags or packaging to take your vegetables, fruit, bread and cookies with you. Many shops don’t mind if you have your own, more sustainable, bag to put bread in. Read the interview to find out more.  

Can you tell us what’s special about your brand/business?

There isn’t really anything super special about our shop, other than the fact that our main goal is to provide daily goods that are sustainable and truly eco-friendly! Instead of looking for the cheapest suppliers, our main focus was to find the ones that share the same mindset and vision about consuming responsibly. It took a long time, but we managed to make wonderful relations!

What motivated you to start an eco-friendly business/brand?

For the same reasons that I spend countless hours on Youtube watching documentaries about our beautiful planet…It’s because I care about our environment and I know that with consumables there’s a lot of improvements to make in that regard. I want at least to participate in that and help people to get a more sustainable option for their daily needs and goods. And I also love to work online!

What green issues are you most passionate about?

Most definitely the wastes and garbage that are thrown in the ocean, most specifically the plastic it’s horrible! We are all big fans of outdoor sports in the company since we are children so we’ve always been sensitive to these issues.

I remember, at a very young age, seeing garbage floating in the ocean when we were out surfing. I think if people are exposed as young as possible to these problems, it would be much easier to educate people about these issues.

What advice would you have for other aspiring social and green entrepreneurs?

I would say the first thing to do would be to network as much as possible with the community. It’s the way to go if we want to get the message passed we need to support each other. SO I would say, be yourself and make sure you don’t lose the main goal in all this pursuit. But we are only at the beginning of this project, you should ask me this question in a couple of years I will probably have more tips!
