I'm born in Argentina and grew up in Ghent. I studied Economics in Ghent. Here, I discovered my passion for circular economy. I love strolling down the city streets discovering 'green' shops and products. I also spend my time doing research for reliable information and meeting Belgium’s local and international movers & shakers of the eco-landscape.
I believe in an urban lifestyle that embraces fun, comfort and respect to nature. That's why I founded Mixua. The name 'Mixua' refers to to 'my choice'. It's a word game between the Spanish word 'mi' ('my') and the French word 'choix' ('choice'). Because every person has the power to make a positive difference through her/his conscious choices.
The goal of Mixua is to help people interested in an eco-friendly lifestyle to save time and money. How? Through the Eco teambuilding, Eco Lifestyle Tours and the Eco E-Shop. In the blog I like to share tips, discoveries and challenges towards a this lifestyle.

I’m Boyana, coach at Mixua. Born and raised in Bulgaria, I moved to Brussels 16 years ago and fell in love with this beautiful city. I worked in marketing for several years but sitting behind a desk was not my thing. So, in 2017 I quit my nine-to-five job to become an entrepreneur. It was the beginning of my “green” journey.
During my career transition I met so many inspiring creators of local brands and innovative entrepreneurs that I felt the urge to help them. The deeper I dug, the more l questioned our ways of buying and consuming products. I became conscious about the ways products are made and what happens with them once we’re done using them. I started writing about my eco transition on Instagram (@beyond.the.hashtag) and this is how I met Emilia.
Here we are now sharing our passion for local products and sustainable brands through the Eco Lifestyle Tours and Eco teambuildings.
Passion: meeting people with inspiring ideas
Addictions: chocolate, coffee and my phone
Eco challenge: find high quality zero waste cosmetics
