What we do?
Breath Body Earth was born out of a desire to do some good in a changing world. We take our time sorting through hundreds of second-hand clothes in the giant Pacas of Guatemala. Once we have selected the best, we take it to highly skilled elderly indigenous woman - otherwise known as, Las Abuelitas de La Calle (The Grandmothers of the Street). We then pay our Abuelitas to beautify the clothes with traditional, hecho a mano (handmade), Guatemalan fabric. By bringing them new clothes each week, we aim to pay them the national minimum wage. We help them by providing them with steady income, and they help us by reworking our findings, and being the backbone of our movement into sustainable and eco-conscious living.
