From 2016 to 2018, our family left the comfort of a good home to go on a new adventure, a new life, a new journey. We bought a 45ft sailboat and went on sailing from Canada to the Caribbean, including 2 months volunteering in Honduras. We didn’t know it would change us so much, deeply inside. Our values changed. Our perception of the world changed. Our needs changed. Most importantly, we saw the world through a different lens. A more natural one, a more sustainable one.

We witnessed a wonderful world, beautiful places & gorgeous land. We were welcomed by very poor culture, so rich in traditions and values. But we were saddened to sail in a sea full of plastic. We visited remote areas where ditches and fields were covered with pollution. We saw that our precious planet doesn’t have any Plan B. 

This is when & where we had a deep surge to make a difference. An immense appreciation was born for our planet, linking every single species all together to form this world we live in. We need each other in a very thigh way. Now, we want more than never to help you go through available steps to reduce our foot print, to reduce our consumption, to help our planet recuperate many mistakes human kind have done.


More than ever, we have the technology, we have greener materials and we have the knowledge to achieve way more by using way less. Let’s embark on a positive journey together by starting now so our children and grandchildren may have a healthier planet.
