Itza Wood is a social venture in San Andres, Petén, that handcrafts quality home decor items from sustainable and locally-sourced tropical wood. Each piece is a truly unique expression of the Guatemalan jungle and a testament to the beauty and biodiversity of Petén .
Our mission is to preserve the beauty of the Petén jungle while empowering the Guatemalan people. All of our home decor creations are sourced exclusively from the Petén jungle, and contribute to the local Jungle School to help drive education for younger people in the region.
Itza Wood aims to break the cycle of poverty and usher healthy development for the remote communities of Peten by reinvesting 100% of our profits in social projects. Our commitment to sustainability is demonstrated by their actions: we reforested 45,000 trees in the heart of the Peten jungle before touching a single tree, and we purchase FSC certified woods that respect natural resources.
With the support of Novica, this business was able to open a store on the online marketplace.
