I am Pallavi Santhapuram, and I founded The Eco Loop with a passion to make people aware of how the use of harmful materials used in many products in the present era is affecting their health, and ruining the environment.
I have worked as a structural engineer for 11+ years, and while preparing for a course on Green building certification called LEED (Leadership in energy and environmental design), it was eye-opening to me to learn about the pressing problem of how urgently our Ecosystem needs to be rescued from use of harmful materials polluting our environment and most of it being dumped in our landfills to degrade for thousands of years thus causing many adverse effects!
It was even more shocking to know from further research and study that we have limited time to reverse this damage. This triggered my guilt, and I started to transition one step at a time to a more conscious and sustainable lifestyle. Having experienced many health problems due to my sedentary lifestyle and seeing so many people around me falling sick with serious chronic diseases, I passionately felt the need to bring to people the benefits of living in harmony with nature and take charge of their health as I did for myself.
I felt the need to share the little knowledge I gained and also what I was constantly researching about good sustainable practices and genuinely sustainable products.
The Eco Loop was thus born with a burning desire to spread awareness and educate people about green living, so we can make our lives and the planet more sustainable.
“Holistic sustainable solutions” is our Tagline.
Why this tagline?
I strongly believe sustainability cannot be achieved by only eliminating plastic. It is a very broad term and intertwined with our daily habits, the food we eat, the materials we choose, and every action we take in our lives. Hence I want to provide people with all the solutions to go sustainable.
The Eco Loop is a social enterprise, with a mission to provide households and organizations with sustainable products, solutions, tips, and tricks for the overall well-being of people and our Ecosystem.
