About Ciclomanias

Never too late to make a difference

Ciclomanias is a social Enterprise that combines creativity with environmental and social awareness. We are committed to protecting our natural resources and promoting sustainable communities.

Twenty years ago Elizabeth Romo-Rabago and Marco Rivera started Ciclomanias using the Ludoplastia technique. The Ludoplastia Technique. (from the Greek words Ludos – play and plasté- shape), is a technique created by a Mexican architect and artist, José Luis Vargas Luévano, that uses geometric shapes.

The Art that we produce is made from upcycled materials such as corrugated cardboard and plastic bottles. By supporting our work you are providing job opportunities to vulnerable groups such as single moms, seniors and deaf women. This means that part of the proceeds from selling these products in Canada or abroad are allocated to train vulnerable groups in Mexico, so they can learn the technique and earn extra income selling the products that they make.

In addition to this social empowerment, Ciclomanías works hard to reduce its ecological footprint, including environmental impacts associated with the manufacture of these arts and crafts as well as with its final disposal. That is why, 98% of our raw materials are made of corrugated cardboard and plastic bottles which we recycle and transform into a variety of useful and decorative arts and crafts for your office and home.

Ciclomanias proudly produces environmentally friendly hand-crafted goods. It has upcycled more than 100, 000 plastic bottles and more than 100 tons of corrugated cardboard boxes.

We are looking forward to continue growing our business and we know the only way to accomplish this is with your support. So, I invite new and old customers to support our work and join us to make a difference in this world.

    I have always been inspired by the simplicity and the power of nature, which has influenced my professional and personal beliefs. Twenty years ago I co-founded Ciclomanias, a social enterprise which offers Art and crafts made of recycled materials.
