About Me

earth friendly family
Welcome to my earth friendly adventure!

After many years in Canada, my family and I left our stable jobs and took off into the unknown, landing in Cotacachi, Ecuador.  I love to explore my gorgeous new homeland and investigate environmental issues, poverty and fair trade.  I am seeking a richer spirituality, and rethinking some of my North American values, especially consumerism.

I have started a small fair trade shop online, called ArtisansintheAndes.com where I showcase some of the amazing handmade work of the ladies here in the Andes.  I am so amazed with the lovely workmanship, especially in the trades that have been passed down through the centuries.

I would love to hear from you – please leave comments and leave your email for updates.  Feel free to write or call too.
