OUR STORY

Hi!, I’m Federico Baroni, a 23 years old Argentinian entrepreneur, and this is the story of WALTIC.

The context

Due to the economic crisis that South America is facing, there are no funds to invest in this kind of projects, the national programs aimed to promote sustainable projects are stuck and is too risky for private investors. Also, the government wouldn’t help me, right now the Brazilian and Argentinian government are implicated in burning part of the Amazona rainforest to produce cow meat and even develop real state projects, so I got to think something else.

So what should I do to help the environment in my region?

I decided to go to Europe, The Netherlands specifically. Because the country has the mindset to let these projects happen. My plan from the beginning was: found the project, get the funds, start cleanups in South America and recycle all that plastic into memorable objects, like the watch.

It wasn’t easy, first I got to adapt to Dutch culture, find a job, survive until I could find something (I came to NL with just 300USD). Struggling to get in contact with investors, I met Melisa Monti an Argentinian designer based in NL who helped me to find my current business partner.

It was love at first sight. My watch arrived this morning in a very beautiful and creative box. After unpacking it I got chills! Impressed by the fact that such a good quality product was once garbage I couldn’t wait to try it. It fits perfectly!! Waltic watches are a must have! not only because of its design but because of the meaning each watch has. By wearing one of these you are making sure there is less plastic out there destroying our planet!! LOVE IT!!!
Keep on going guys!!

I love that they are using recycled plastic. I even saw them cleaning the canals in Amsterdam. The watch feels very light and comfortable to wear. Keep up the good work guys!
