In a world where environmental consciousness is paramount, Akash, the mastermind behind Green Lovers Store, has emerged as a trailblazer in the eco-friendly business. In just two years, Green Lovers Store has become Kerala’s first eco-friendly brand and a shining example of how one person’s determination can drive positive change. Based in Pathanamthitta, the store has a variety of products ranging from wooden toothbrushes to combs fit for daily use.
What is His Story?
Born out of a desire to combat the plastic waste crisis, Akash conceptualized Green Lovers Store nearly two years ago. He recognized that e-commerce businesses often contribute to the plastic problem through packaging and shipping materials. Before making his products eco-friendly, he tackled this issue head-on by seeking alternative, sustainable packaging solutions. Green Lovers Store strives to offer eco-friendly products and eco-conscious shipping methods.
While managing a successful business, Akash is also pursuing a degree in Agriculture.
Despite his passion and determination, Akash faced initial scepticism due to his young age. Starting a business as a teenager was often seen as a mere trend or phase. However, with unwavering support from his family, Akash persevered. A general lack of awareness about eco-friendly products presented another hurdle, as people were accustomed to conventional plastic items.
Green Lovers Store started by selling eco-friendly toothbrushes – made from sustainable bamboo with antifungal properties. This simple yet innovative solution attracted buyers from Kerala and across India. The brand’s commitment to affordability, with prices starting from Rs. 50, has further contributed to its popularity.
Green Lovers Store has gained recognition despite the challenges of being located in a small town. Participation in exhibitions in Kottayam and Ernakulam showcased the brand’s innovation and garnered positive reactions. The range of products, including neem wood combs, paper pencils made from recycled newspapers, and bamboo-based earbuds, have caught the attention of environmentally conscious consumers. Each product offered by Green Lovers Store undergoes rigorous testing to ensure its quality and eco-friendly attributes.
