We are first generation immigrants who moved to US in early 2000s from India. We came here to pursue higher education and graduated with Masters Degrees in Engineering and Business Administration. With our traditional up bringing in India, we were always very environment conscious. However, it was not until a simple question from my 5 year old Son around lifestyle that we could really discover our True North, our true purpose in life.
After his trip to India to visit his Grandparents in 2016, my Son came back to US with a curious question on his mind. He asked, “Why Grandpa and Grandma has only wooden toys for me to play with?” At first it seemed like a simple answer, but quickly it became a story about conscious lifestyle choices people can make for a safer planet and healthy self. His Grand Parents made a conscious decision to get rid of plastic from their lives and replaced most of the household plastic products with better alternatives like wood, steel, copper, cotton, leaf based products, etc. that not only saved money and helped local artisans but also are environmentally safe and healthy.
That day, it hit home on us how much we surround ourselves, our kids, and our pets with unhealthy plastic and that there are better alternatives exist. At that moment, we decided to make it our mission to not only implement a plastic alternative, eco-friendly lifestyle for ourselves but also think big and extend this to the rest of the world. Thus “Ecozoi” was born. It stands for eco-friendly lifestyle. We believe that an eco-lifestyle would create a sustainable flywheel of Happiness by considerably lowering our Carbon footprint.
Ecozoi’s mission is to promote a sustainable lifestyle with affordable plastic-free and chemical-free kitchen and home products while limiting our carbon footprint by using carbon neutral shipping and zero plastic packaging.
In addition to being a woman-owned small business, Ecozoi is also a family business.
