Today we are celebrating six courageous DOers who are investing in our planet by building sustainable food systems and lifestyle products. We are inspired by how they redefine the role of business in society – as a force of regeneration rather than extrapolation. These entrepreneurs are past and present participants of The DO School’s Future of Food Fellowship, supported by Be the Earth, or the UN Women Industry Disruptor, supported by the European Union.
Malini Parmar & Smita Kulkarni: Stone Soup
Stone Soup is a hub for hassle free, convenient solutions to everyone who wishes to go green. They offer conscious consumers sustainable personal care and menstrual products, home composting kits, and plastic-free home products.
We love how Stone Soup is a real Zebra company: collaboration over competition, community-led, and making an outsized impact by diverting 12 million menstrual pads and over 10 tonnes of waste daily.
Olagoke Balogun: So Fresh
70% of all deaths worldwide are caused by non-communicable diseases (NCDs). A healthy diet may reduce the risk of getting NCDs by 80%. That’s why we love So Fresh’s inspiration:
Monica Kisic: Roots Radicals
Roots Radicals is a zero waste, sustainable food company that aims to reconnect people with food. They turn rescued foods into delicious soups, pickles, spices, sauces, fruit preserves, and more to welcome people into a circular lifestyle.
An area larger than China is used to grow food that’s never eaten. It’s wasted. Thanks to their passionate customers and partners, Roots Radicals has prevented 4500 kg of food waste – capturing 11 tonnes of CO2!
Santi Abakaz: TASTEBUD LAB
There isn’t a lot of infrastructure in Thailand for sustainable food innovation. That’s why we love TASTEBUD LAB, which not only incubates plant-based food startups, but is also building a pool of investors and advisors to catipult the sustainable food system across APAC.
Priyanka Mandal: Clan Earth
