Welcome to Plant Ahead!

We love sharing our beautiful Coconut Bowls and Bamboo Straws with you. But that’s not our goal. Our goal is to change the world. Sounds ambitious? It is. But we have to act now, otherwise, there will be no future for humanity. Via our products and workshops, we want to inspire you to make conscious decisions and to live more plant-based and sustainable.


Why I started Plant Ahead

When growing up, animals were a part of our family. We had pets at home and my mom also took care of many other animals in our neighborhood when they were in need of help. It never felt right to also eat animals, but that was ‘normal” and “good” for you. Thank god I know better now.

On 01-01-2013 I changed my life forever. I stopped eating meat and slowly started to eliminate all other animal products from my diet. Animals were the number one reason for me to go vegan. They are a part of our planet, just like we are, and they just want a happy life, just like we do.

But there are more reasons for me to live a plant-based life: my own health and the future of our planet.

Many studies show that eating meat and other animal products are directly linked to diseases and that vegetarians and vegans on average live longer. Personally, I’ve never felt better physically and mentally since I started to eat vegan.

Creating a sustainable planet has always been important to me. When working for Tesla, I was helping to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable transport. During that time, I also learned that the meat industry produces more CO2 emissions than all transport combined! Getting more electric cars on the road is very important but also takes a lot of time. Making a change to our diet is something that we can all start doing TODAY and will have an even bigger IMPACT.

One thing is clear: a better world begins on our plate. By eating less meat and other animal products we can solve many problems. But it doesn’t stop there. Once I started to become conscious of what is on my plate, I become more conscious of how all the things I do and I buy can have a positive or negative impact. It has been the most exciting and interesting journey of my life.
