Too many local businesses have shut down. Together, we will overcome any and all obstacles.
Unidas (which means “united” in Spanish and is grammatically feminine) is a co-branding campaign of three Latina-owned and operated businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area who share cooperative values. Our vision is to inspire other businesses with shared values to join us, widen the range of products and services we can collectively offer, and create a network of local businesses that help each other weather the economic challenges of this pandemic.
Utz Threads is a textile brand owned by Cinthya Flores that was born from the lively colors and ancestral weaving practices of the Maya Quiché people. Her brand’s products include
laptop cases, travel pouches and purses all handmade by tejedoras in Guatemala.
Anahi Rojas is the founder and owner of Professional Eco Cleaning, an ecological cleaning company with cooperative and feminist values. Rojas’ firm serves the East Bay, helping keep homes and offices safe in light of the COVID pandemic.
PepitosPaletas.com is the third company as part of Unidas’ inaugural efforts. The brand is owned by Nancy Rosales and blends traditional Mexican paletas with vegan recipes. Pepito’s Paletas deliver their frozen treats across the Bay Area in their signature eight-hour biodegradable frozen boxes.
A portion of all proceeds generated from our Unidas campaign will be donated to Prospera, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing Latina entrepreneurship.
Your 20% discount awaits, and again, please share this with those who want to see Latina-owned businesses shine!
