The Heart of Waraba has begun its third season of sharing stories of sustainable entrepreneurs from across the planet. Stories range from two friends in Mexico who launched a company to make sustainable leather from cactus to an eco-hotel developer on an ancient isle in the Nile River in Egypt. One story recounts a sustainable entrepreneur from Portugal who started his company, The Rotten Fruit Box, to dry waste fruit giving local farmers additional markets and reducing food waste, a significant contributor to climate change.
Sustainable entrepreneurs are innovators and the vanguard for creating a healthy planet, and the stories are researched and written up by college intern-writers.
Heart of Waraba director, Sally Beth Shore, says “We think that these stories are especially impactful because they are being identified, researched, and written by college students, a generation that is especially being impacted by not only by the pandemic corona virus, but an epidemic of despair in the face of global warming. By shining a light on the work of innovators all over the planet, we show that people can and are making a difference, and hope to encourage others.

The Heart of Waraba’s purpose is to promote hope and solutions in the face of our environmental challenges and 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 need to cultivate hope to help humanity to rise to the challenge of climate change, and you can’t read the Heart of Waraba stories with feeling a sense of hope.”
Waraba means “Lion” in the West African language of Bambara, and Sally Beth and Michael chose the lion as the emblem for the nonprofit because it takes courage to be an entrepreneur.
