At Green Bone, we believe in second chances. Not only are our dog toys made from second-hand materials, but we also hire youth with criminal backgrounds. Our mission is two-fold, helping to preserve our planet while eliminating violence in the youth of Mexico.

Many believe that those who have been to prison do not deserve a second chance. We believe that not only do they deserve a second chance, they can become some of the best social actors to transform communities. Green Bone helps them by providing an opportunity for meaningful work, a place to regain confidence, and a strong support network. 

Together, we manufacture dog toys made of recycled fabric. They are durable, eco-friendly and beautiful. Check them out on our Instagram page @greenbonemx.

One day my dream is to become an international company, hire hundreds of formerly incarcerated youth and contribute a large percentage of profits to programs that keep kids out of prison in the first place. Programs that break criminogenic patterns from the roots.
