One animal at a time!

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...

The future of travelling. Not so bright anymore?

Wanderlust. Globetrotter. Fernweh. Solivagant. Safarnama – these and many such words elucidate just one thing. TRAVELLING. How long till we hear the echo of these words in our ears again? As the world comes to a standstill in the...

Crónica de una Pandemia anunciada

Llegaba diciembre del 2018, las familias preparaban sus mejores banquetes y atuendos para las festividades que se asomaban; el término de un año se acercaba con el tik tok del reloj marcaba el 31 de diciembre y todos se alistaban para abrazar -quizá por última vez- y...

How To Stay Fit While Traveling

The generalized stereotype of travelers and backpackers that stay at hostels tend to enjoy the pub crawls, the late night munchies and all the cultural foods they can get their hands on. While all those activities are wonderful and very necessary, they are not...

One animal at a time!

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!
