When the last tree is cut down, the last fish eaten,
and the last stream poisoned,
you will realise that you cannot eat money.

This wisdom of the Native Americans has been with me since my youth.

35 years of traveling has broadened my horizons. Open to the beauty of the world while sharpening the perception of social injustice, poverty and the destruction of our living space.

Awareness in everyday life, adjustments and no matter how small, can do much. Provided many think and act that way. To change, you have to decide. That was one of the reasons why I chose the path to self-employment more than 30 years ago.

I want to meet people, no matter where in the world, on an equal footing, with decency and respect. The first step is to create a basis for trust. Meeting like-minded people can create a partnership that will change things in the globalized economy.

The goal: good working conditions, fair salaries for all and more care in dealing with nature.

What I can do is maybe a “drop in the bucket” but I consider it my responsibility as a business owner.
