Barucglass in our Sustainable Shop2019-09-04T18:02:24+00:00

Project Description

The Sustainable Shop at La Sabana Hotel, Suites & Apartments is not an ordinary souvenir shop.  Many of our guests marvel at the hand-crafted art found in our shop and mention not to have seen anything like it while travelling throughout Costa Rica.

It is true that all items are beautiful.  But their true beauty lies far beyond the eye.  All these items are Sustainable.  100% crafted by women, many of them from rural areas and in social and/or economic vulnerability.  All materials used are re-used, re-cycled or picked from naturewith very low environmental impact.

This month, we woud like to showcase Barucglass, created by Grettel Sandoval.  Grettel collects scrap glassfrom construction sites and creates beautiful hand painted jewelry from it.  Be part of Sustainable Turismand Fair Trade by buying at our shop.  We can all make a difference!
