Giving Back: Stela 9 x Hug it Forward


We are currently teaming up with the non-profit, Hug it Forward, a grassroots organization that facilitates education and awareness by empowering communities in Latin America to build “bottle schools.”

Bottle schools are schools built using “eco-bricks”: plastic bottles stuffed with inorganic trash. Entire communities come together to build a more sustainable educational infrastructure for their future.

This fall Stela 9 will launch two collections, created with the goal of raising 13K to fully fund one bottle school in Guatemala.  Your purchase of any of the Stela 9 Abrazos Collection products will directly benefit this cause.

Follow our progress by visiting the or searching #stela9Abrazos on Instagram. Check out the video below to learn about the process of building a bottle school!
