Featuring inspiring stories about entrepreneurs and their sustainable businesses that make eco-friendly products
The Heart of Waraba has entered its third season, sharing stories from sustainable entrepreneurs from around the world. Stories range from two friends in Mexico who started a business to make sustainable leather from cacti, to an eco-hotel developer on an ancient island in the Nile in Egypt. A story tells of a sustainable entrepreneur from Portugal who started his company, The Rotten Fruit Box, to dry fruit waste to provide additional markets to local farmers and reduce food waste, which is a major contributor to climate change.
Sustainable Entrepreneurs are innovators and pioneers in creating a healthy planet, and the stories are researched and written by college interns.
Heart of Waraba Director Sally Beth Shore said: “We think these stories are particularly impactful because they are identified, researched and written by college students, a generation who have been particularly hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic but also an epidemic of despair in the face of global warming. By highlighting the work of innovators around the world, we show that people can and do make a difference and hope to inspire others.

The purpose of Heart of Waraba is to promote hope and solutions to our environmental problems and to encourage business as a force to create a healthy planet.
Her husband Michael Shore, co-director of the nonprofit, adds: “Sustainable entrepreneurs are a growing economic force in the campaign to create a healthy planet. We must cultivate hope to help humanity face the challenge of climate change, and one cannot read the Heart of Waraba stories with a sense of hope.”
Waraba means ‘lion’ in the West African language of Bambara, and Sally Beth and Michael chose the lion as their emblem for the non-profit organization because it takes courage to be an entrepreneur.
