I’m doing what I love #BECAUSE I want to protect the planet.

By Juliana Mendieta

I’m doing what I love #BECAUSE I want to protect the planet.

I always wanted to be an entrepreneur, but one with purpose, someone who cares about what matters, and I was looking for a while the best way to do it. 

I found out later that whatever I planning to do, just to be something that I truly love and most important, something meaningful, then the success will come itself.

After looking inside myself, I found that one of the things that I enjoy most is drawing, but how can I sell my drawings? Who will buy it? And what can I do to make an impact on them?

Well, after some time thinking and overthinking, I decided to try drawing designs that represent how I see the world, most of them with environmental essence, to use them as heat transfers for garments. Then I will be able to sell my art in t-shirts and hoodies while raising funds for an environmental foundation. 

After answering all my initial questions, another big one shows up! Now, what foundation should I support? Who will trust me? And the major question is; which is the perfect one that cares not only about one or two environmental issues, but about all of them?

Then I found myself In the dark hole of my phone searching for foundations and Greenpeace popped up! Well, that is all that I need. 

I’d like you to support my #BECAUSE fundraiser because Greenpeace is making a real difference by acting on climate change, working to save our oceans, forests and other vital ecosystems and encouraging sustainable consumption and production.

Of course, you can help out the planet in many ways! Everyone can find their way, this is just one more. I would love you to help me reach my fundraising goal by purchasing any of my “with purpose apparel” and I will make a donation of a percentage of your purchase, so basically you are the one who is helping.

Every penny counts, we could be not super hero, maybe not vegan or perhaps you do not have a pet yet but every effort counts.
