Our mission

Have you ever wonder why living sustainably is more “complicated” than following the mainstream? We think this is unfair. That´s why we, at La mala leche, create delicious and ethical products for all the amazing sustainability seekers that every day choose to live in harmony with animals and the planet. We want sustainable living to feel as good and easy as it should.

At the same time, in the process of creating and developing an ethical company, we want to identify difficulties, propose solutions and create debate surrounding the need for more sustainable and honest businesses. For a kinder future.

Our story

Hello! I´m Estefanía. After my studies in Business Administration and Advertisement, I felt the urge to work in the Third Sector. Instead of joining my family’s baked goods business, I decided to move to Berlin to work for NGOs. Living in Berlin only encouraged my desire to live a more ethical and sustainable life. But even though Berlin is a paradise of vegan food, second-hand clothing and bio-sustainable shops – I still couldn’t understand why living sustainably had to be so much more difficult and time consuming than following the “mainstream”. I started to think about a tangible way to help normalize this lifestyle and one day it occurred to me to return to my roots, following in the footsteps of my grandmother in 1976, but whilst considering the challenges of the crucially important coming years.
