To me, it isn’t whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, new to the sustainable journey or if you’ve been in the pod a long time — we’re all on the same team — which is #teamplant and #teamplanet. To us, we live by the philosophy that we don’t need everyone to be perfectly zero-waste and sustainable, rather, we encourage small successes. We’re dedicated to build PoweredByPlant as a platform that is safe, and inclusive to shop at.

I am also a Year 4 student studying Business Marketing at the National University of Singapore Business School – majoring in Marketing and Innovation & Entrepreneurship, and also part of the NUS Overseas Colleges internship programme. I’ve just turned 21 and I’m really excited to share my journey so far as the co-founder of building PoweredByPlant – Conscious Shopping alongside with my amazing co-founder Krishna Apoorva Garimella

KRISH
CEO/Cto

Growing up, I was fortunate enough to travel and expose myself to different realities around the world. I saw children working in construction sites, chemical pollutants in some of the cleanest rivers, and animal cruelty. Educating myself on environmental and ethical matters pushed me to become a lot more conscious of my consumption and I started becoming that family member that would hoard all the plastics to dump in the recycling bin or that friend that would obsess over different vegan restaurants in town.

Although most of us are at the stage where we are trying to figure out HOW to become sustainable, vegan and ethical easily, I am grateful that PoweredByPlant gave me the avenue to share my knowledge and highlight the best brands that truly care about our environment and our people.

Ramya

I am an economics undergraduate and an avid animal lover. My passion lies in giving back to the society and protecting our environment. I love to venture into plant based food options by coming up with creative recipes. Having had a deep-seated interest in looming societal issues, I hope to re-imagine a planet where we do good, no matter the amount.

I just graduated from JC, and I like to run (at Macritchie!) and find vegetables to eat – cucumber is definitely my favourite. I believe that we need to do our best to protect the only earth we have, for ourselves and our future 🙂</p?

An Environmental Studies major, a passion for everything nature has been curated over my 2 years in university, where I had the opportunity to study various environmental and biodiversity-related topics. I’ve discovered an interest for the quirkiest things (fungi!) and I am looking forward to contributing more towards  a more sustainable, greener future.

<pstyle=”text-align: center;”>I am a final year literature and politics student, and when not reading some thing or another, can usually be found sewing. I sew vintage clothes, mostly Edwardian/Victorian and do dress like that in my daily life, and thus perpetually one glass of water away from heat stroke at all times.
