What are your Powerful Intentions?
To continue creating world class Costa Rica Natural Paper Company a tree free paper company that’s adds social responsibility and environmentalism to produce elegant and appealing natural fiber paper and stationery products. By recycling tropical fibers and post-consumer paper, we save trees and cut down on landfill-clogging and river-polluting waste, and are able to make these kinds of products school & office notebooks, journals, note cards, and greeting cards with out the use of trees, using the agro-industrial waste from plantations, we a have created Banana Paper. Coffee Paper, Lemon Paper, and Mango Paper. I want to continue to support the local economy and ours, and continue giving a percentage of our sales to the orphanage we support. Continue surfing everyday and make some money along the way. Check us out www.ecopaper.com The idea is a positive activism, which roots itself in the cooperation between otherwise unrelated facets of society. There have been other movements to replace the need for trees. These other movements have resulted in beautiful papers made from hemp (cannabis), flax, kenaf, and bamboo. Although these other 'virgin' fiber papers are not made from trees, they do not account for the vast amount of available paper waste and post-harvest agricultural fibers. It gives us great satisfaction to have helped innovate an economically feasible option for an agro-industrial waste that yearly dumps 230,000 tons of waste in Costa Rica alone. We're challenged by the idea of using exotic tropical fibers as an alternative paper, and inspired by the new textures and tones they afford. Recycling isn't new, of course. Neither is the use of recycled materials to create designer products. These efforts have been limited by either cost or customer acceptability. The results of processing these exotic tropical fibers are items that both appeal to the consumer, and are viable substitutes for the stationery, school, and office products that can be used every day. The positive ecological impact results from the volumes that are consumed by the use of these exotic paper products. The usability and appeal of the product takes the environmental aspirations out of the realm of idealistic dreams and into the realm of substantially positive environmental impact.

I’m a simple but complicated hard to explain but, I do believe in the four absolutes with out these I believe no man or woman can truly exist without these FOUR They are PURITY, HONESTY, UNSELFNESS, and LOVE. “Life will bring you pain all by itself” My reasonability is to create joy. Life has handed me some pretty large setbacks. But I’m a survivor and nothing can keep me down. I’ve also discovered that nothing happens in life has any meaning other than the meaning I attach to it. Pain and suffering only come from judgment. As I release judgment and stop labeling things as “positive” or ‘negative” and simply accept them as opportunities to evolve to my biggest self, my life will transform. There really is no such thing as ‘bad experience ‘ or even a good one. Life just is, If you understand what I’m saying. Through the way I interpret and process the experiences of my life, I shape my reality. My thoughts form the world, in so many ways. I see life as a splendid adventure. The hard times fuel my growth and make me wiser. The easy straights fill me with joy and seem to be rewards for living in alignment with the natural rules of the game. I have a special life and enjoy everyday, happy every morning. I believe in treating the first person I see in the morning awesome and the last person I see awesome, and every one in between.
