Chocosol was born of a search for applications for the “Fuego Solar” (Solar Fire), but with time it became a project in its own right. Its slogan, “We produce joy without generating malice,” sums up the cooperative’s philosophy. Its goals always looked to establish networks of fair trade, innovations in appropriate technologies, and recycling of someone else’s garbage. The cooperative also sought to reclaim traditional technologies, and to manage scales that would guarantee its sustainability without having to turn to mass-production. Eventually this eco-company came to benefit more than 15 people. -text taken from paper
