Orlando's story

Orlando and his wife Barbara run two large flower greenhouses in San Lorenzo Chiautzingo, Puebla. They principally produce roses of a wide variety of colors that they sell throughout Mexico, packaged and prepared. Sometimes they dye white roses in a small workshop for special holidays, and they prepare different gift packages for mothers' day and Valentine's Day. Their greenhouses require high amounts of chemical fertilizer that costs them tens of thousands of pesos each year. The organic fertilizer from their Sistema BioBolsa biodigester will allow them to save lots of money, and will free them from having to work with so many synthetic chemicals. They will use the biogas to cook in their home and to heat water for bathing.
