“In the restaurant where I worked before, they used a lot of bleach, and I had a lot of allergies and respiratory problems. I don’t have those anymore, and I don’t get the same aches in my body that I used to, either. Now I feel good physically and mentally. I feel proud to be in a green cooperative and I’m glad that my fellow socias feel the same way.”

Adela, co-op member since 2001
