In nature is the preservation of the world
MISSION & HISTORY.
Born in Cuenca-Ecuador, founder Rina Guerrero-Kesler grew up surrounded by nature in the cloud forest of the majestics Andes Mountains. After finishing her undergrad as Environmental Biologist, Rina moved to the US and worked at the Atlanta Botanical Garden taking care of the Orchid Collection as well as helping with plant conservation projects in the southeast and other countries. During the pandemia and carrying on her love for Nature and her people, Rina decides to work for what she feels is her life purpose and mission: to do what she can to minimise the amount of tropical forest deforestation by serving as a bridge between her two countries.
With the creation of Ecuafriendly, Rina will empower local Ecuadorian artisans to protect their natural surroundings and also donate 15% of the net profit to “Fundación de Corazón de los Andes'' in their environmental conservation efforts. More at corazondelosandes.org
