Pauji Outdoors was first inspired by the captivating town of Pauji in the southern edge of the Gran Sabana, Venezuela. This town is home to the Pemon Indians as well as to many individuals who decided to trade in their city life for a simpler and more sustainable lifestyle alongside the indigenous people. Our founder traveled to this town at the age of 16, where she first discovered the importance of cultivating a deep connection between oneself and nature. After visiting this natural paradise, Cristina profoundly changed her lifestyle to one that places an ecological lens on all of her daily activities. She began to scuba dive at the age of 21 and developed an unparalleled passion for the ocean after witnessing the impact single-use plastics have on all marine life. Her unconditional love for nature and for protecting its wildlife fueled her to create Pauji Outdoors. Our philosophy is based on finding the balance between what is beneficial for both nature and humans by placing that same ecological lens on our daily consumption.
