"How I, as a 16-year-old entrepreneur, improve the world with sustainable MOTAS bags"
I am Gerardo Mollen Ochoa and I started my own company at the age of 14 years old. I am currently 16 years old. Now at the age of 16 I sell as many sustainable bags as possible to improve the world. I am proud to say that we have already been able to help children with school supplies in Peru!
I’ve always wanted to start my own business. Improving the world and helping the children in Peru were my priorities. With my own company MOTAS I can sell sustainable bags for a better world. I can also help the children in Peru with my own bags. My thought started as a 14-year-old, but two years later I am still busy selling my own bags.
MOTAS as a company
MOTAS is a young company committed to changing the world! We want to get rid of nylon and plastic bags. Our bags are, in comparison with nylon and plastic bags, biodegradable. To change the world, we as humans must also live more environmentally friendly! A sustainable bag can be the first step in the right direction.
We print the bags for all kinds of consumers. MOTAS also makes bags for companies and organizations. As an organization, you too can put your own logo on a sustainable bag! If you are interested, you can always send us an email or request a quote.
The Children's Project in Peru
You also contribute to another charity. A large part of the profit we make goes to the Children’s Project. This is a project that we use to go to Peru, for example, to help poor children with school supplies that they cannot afford themselves.
We have already carried out the Children’s Project 5 times in Peru. Hereby we have helped poor children with school supplies that they cannot afford themselves, but this time the Children’s Project will be different. MOTAS wants to help poor children in Peru, but not to give plastic bags with the school supplies but sustainable bags with the school supplies. The bags that we make ourselves.
We can all do this with your help. We can help change the world! Together!
Why did I start my own business?
Why am I actually doing this?
I am often asked this, but with the help of my company I can finally improve the world. Because we can no longer live like this. It must change!
The nylon and plastic bags are very bad for the world. We want the plastic and nylon bags to disappear, because these bags are very harmful to the environment. Those bags also have a lot of effect on the world. They are not biodegradable. Our sustainable bags are. You also help the Children’s Project with the purchase of sustainable bags. MOTAS wants to help the world because …
In a few years there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean.
We have to do something about it! NOW!
So HELP while it is still possible!
We don’t have planet B!
