The vision behind EcoSparkles has always been to protect our environment and give back to the earth wherever possible. The passion for the project blossomed in the start of 2016 when our founder, Nanna, lived and worked for 3 months deep in the Ecuadorian part of the Amazon rainforest.
She worked with a project called Amazoonico, which rescues and rehabilitate wild animals, which have been confiscated by the government for illegal trafficking and/or captivity.
Amazoonico is part of a bigger project, Selva Viva, which owns a huge area of protected rainforest where the wild animals are released back into the world, to live a safe life. Since the beginning of the project back in 1993, thousands of animals have been rehabilitated and released back to the wild.
Since the love for Mother Nature and wildlife is running so deep in the heart of EcoSparkles, we decided in 2018 to make the 'EcoSparkles Pledge' where we promise to donate some of our yearly profits back to earth and the place where it all began so they can continue their important work protection our rainforest.
Since then we have donated 8% of our yearly profit to Amazoonico
