Constantino Morales Rosales and his family live in a small town called El Jobo in the hills of Nicoya district #1. Don Tino is 59 years old and started his straw business in 2007. At that time he worked as head gardener for the Harmony Hotel in Nosara where he became interested in sustainability and the environment.

That’s how he got the idea of creating a sustainable business of organic and 100% biodegradable straws, to reduce the plastic consumption. With the help of his family he has brought forward this micro company, which began as something small and now distributes its products to businesses all over the North Pacific and the South Pacific regions of the country.
