Today’s dream is a special one. It is another example of how important it is to share your dreams with the world.
Last year my friend Giovanni shared with me his project about t-shirt design. I immediately supported him by sharing his project with my friends. I felt so connected with his plan as it is something that I want to do one day too. As I always say to him, I am living one of my dreams through his dream.
Fact fun, I didn’t want to share my dream with him last year because I wasn’t sure about my idea. Still, a few months after I met him again and this time, I had the courage to share my ideas with him. To my surprise, we connected with our dreams/projects, and we are having so much fun supporting and given ideas to each other to keep these projects going.

Dreamer: Giovanni Sanchez
Q: What is your dream?
A: To thrive as a sustainable brand with a positive impact while creating a conscious movement based on kindness: to people, to animals and to nature.
Q: How will your dream impact the world or a person?
A: Thanks to our partnership with One Tree Planted we are planting 1 tree for every product sold, this means we all give back to the environment.
Why trees? They help reduce carbon footprint, they filter the air we breathe and provide habitat to a majority of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity.
We also work with sustainable suppliers who are aligned with our own core values. Our eco T-Shirts are made out of recycled plastic such as water bottles and are screen printed locally in Orlando, FL, using water-based inks (no plastisol). Nearly 100% of our stickers are made with recycled paper and all of our shipping packagings are made of recycled materials and are recyclable as well.
Q: What advice can you give other people that are gathering the courage to follow their dreams?
A: 1. This might sound cliché but I believe it’s worth repeating: just go for it and do it. Really stop for a bit and think of what it is that you want to achieve, then think of your “why”, and once you get that connection (believe me, you will feel it as a mix of emotions exploding inside) go ahead and take action. Act, act, act! Every small step counts and will get you closer to your goal, and once you are walking through this journey you will see how everything you need comes to you like magic. You will connect with people who share with you their best ideas and advice, you will trust your instinct more than not, and you will be living in a state of flow you weren’t able to see before.
2. But right before going for it, organize your ideas! Put them down on paper, prioritize and then create a plan to make them happen. Make daily and weekly to-do lists so you don’t get overwhelmed by everything you have in your mind. You will feel much lighter knowing it’s all written down and that those great ideas won’t get lost.
Q: How can other people support you in making a difference with your dream?
A: As mentioned before, by purchasing one of our products we plant 1 tree. That’s a big way to support our small business while making a positive impact on the planet.
At this moment we are also organizing different outdoor events such as beach and nature cleanups, planting trees ourselves, and creating a challenge to invite people to do more random acts of kindness for others.
To sum up, we could say that the best way to support this dream would be to actively engaging with all these activities (either physically or virtually) and help us create this community of like-minded people sharing positive ideas together.
