My love & fascination towards animals was probably first triggered when we got our first pet – A dog. But when I look back at my childhood I do get glimpses of a little boy waking up every day to go outside & play with stray kittens & puppies before getting ready for school. The childish love & fascination made me more & more aware every day of the atrocities that animals go through, I started to observe more & study more about the role that animals play in our environment (Yes, animal planet was my favorite channel while growing up) Eventually I found myself taking conscious efforts towards taking care of the voiceless friends around us. However, It wasn’t too long before the hospitality bug got me & I started off my own hostel brand & hardly had any time to breathe.
Unlike earlier, today I find myself & Locomo’s platform capable enough to reach out to the right people & voice our opinion towards animal welfare & I want to make sure it doesn’t go wasted.
LoCoexist’s idea is simple – We want to raise money through retail & direct donations (Online or physically) & make sure that reaches the right place.
For now we have been supporting Everyday individuals who go out on the streets and feed the stray. However we want to expand the vision into supporting animals (Feeding & Treating) on a bigger scale. Not only that but also raise awareness & alertness towards our environment
This particular brand extension is the closest to my heart because not only does it make me happy from the inside but we are actually able to provide food & shelter to some animals that otherwise wouldn’t have made it. Oh and of course, it’s a 100% non profit entity. We have just started with our first collection, it’s simple but super cute. We’re rolling out T-shirts made of 100% cotton & the ink used on them is 100% organic! Ensuring that all our products & habits are always eco-friendly & sustainable.
I hope we can make this world a better place, one animal at a time!
