Turning waste paper into chic notebooks and sketch pads for school children to help them with their education is the focus for this groundbreaking social enterprise.
Whilst at university, Maria used to work in a store taking photocopies and she saw how much paper was being wasted on a daily basis. She also noticed that many young children didn’t have writing books or art pads to draw and paint on. Maria’s solution was to start her own company, Movimiento Darte in 2011, to transform waste paper into stylish notebooks and sketch pads. In order to create something that stands out from the competition, Maria engaged with artists from around the world to create unique cover designs for her products. .
