CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility is an essential part of our business model. All Agave products are part of Project Protect Our Mother Earth, our fair trade project in Mexico. When you purchase these handmade Agave Products, you are helping support 115 women and provide in-school lunch programs for impoverished children.
We have also initiate a recycling project that helps to support the in-school lunch program. We are utilizing the natural and human resources in this Mexican community to create sustainable sources of revenue and sustainable products. These are great natural fiber products, serve a variety of uses in and around the home, and they are completely biodegradable.
EnviroTextile’s successfully completed a clinic for the Otomi community:
Because of all the wonderful support from all of you, we have achieved our goal!
The clinic that has been built, although still needing to be filled with supplies!

This is the 4th wheelchair purchased by EnviroTextiles® for the people in the community.
Recycling bins have been placed throughout the community to help sponsor in school lunch programs.
Otomi in the beginning. Mari, the woman in the photo is the leader of the community.
Barbara's greatest friend in the village, Guadalupe. She loves to do Barbara's hair and make her look nice.
We like to show all of you what “WE ALL” have helped to create and how far we are, our people in the Otomi community also like to share and see what all of us are doing in the US.
Next time, we promise to get a picture of all the students, Barbara was not able to make it down for graduation and was greeted by a little friend excited to show off his new diploma!
Clothing and shoes provided to families in need in our communities.
One of my teachers, Mari!
"Beyond The Sun" is abundant with natural resources rather than chemical, man made textiles!
3 months I stayed with the people to be taught what abundance is available as natural resources.
My inspiration, Bundy, the woman on left; we meet 9 years ago. She and Walter (her deceased husband) came to Mexico in the 50's to help the Mexico people.
A lecture from Guadalupe. She says Barbara is always late for food. Worst is if Barbara miss the fresh milk that she walks to get from the cow!
It was a happy day to see 8 years of work finally ready for first sample; proof of concept.
First attempt to use a new natural fiber on a machine loom. The one to Barbara's left is named Lucky. That was true! We had total success spinning and weaving our first trial!
Grading system starts in a field! Must wear boots, a lot of snakes.
The vehicle we donated to our team in Mexico for reliable transportation. Mexico and USA working together!
