"Chef Pura Vida" is a project of sustainable materials from waste and byproducts of gastronomy. Research conducted by contemporary jewelry designer Gian Carlo Sandoval Mazzero. He has made more than 30 "pastas" with different materials: coffeegrounds, fruit peels, dried leaves, eggshells, textile waste, handicraft waste, beach sands and volcanic ash. In addition, it provides a semantic meaning, that is to say that the "Pure Life" offers a second "life" or continuation of it. This is one of the sustainable ways of giving diversified use to the by-products of the world's gastronomy.
