The journey began at the Gili Islands, where our entire perspective about the planet we lived in changed. But first, a brief introduction is due. My name is Fatema, and I am the co-founder and CEO of Turtefeet Company. My other Co-founders, Abbas and Mohsin, are equally passionate and involved in this initiative.
We one day went scuba diving in the ocean at Gili island, and to our surprise, we saw lots of plastic. Gili islands went from inhabitable to a tourist destination and then to a garbage pit in a period of just a few years. For the first time in years did we realized how our actions have been destroying the earth.
The turning point for us was “Our Planet” show on Netflix. We understood the extent to which climate change had impacted our planet. Seeing the animals suffer as a result of our activities was an eye-opener that made us want to bring about a change.
I decided to quit my job and with the support of Abbas and Mohsin laid the foundation of Turtlefeet Company. We aspire to leave a green planet for our future generations and with your support, we hope to achieve it.
