Bold Types | Maria Camila Vasco

Maria Camila Vasco wants to change how we shop, one toothbrush at a time. The 23-year-old is the owner of Boston’s first zero-waste store, Uvida in the North End, which opened last year during pandemic. In the latest episode of Bold Types, Vasco shared the story of how she built her company while still an undergrad at UMass Boston, and how her parents, who both own storefronts in East Boston, pushed her toward a path of entrepreneurship.
