“We are the first generation to feel the effect of climate change and the last generation who can do something about it.” – President Obama.

Welcome to Plant Ahead!

We love selling beautiful Coconut Bowls and Bamboo Straws. But that’s not why we are here. We are here to change the world. Sounds ambitious? It is. But President Obama is right. We have to act now, otherwise, there will be no future for humanity. That’s why we want to inspire you to live a more plant-based and sustainable life. Even if it’s just a little bit.

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 if 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 #1 reason for me to go vegan. They are a part of our planet, just like we are, and we should all treat each other with love and respect.
But there are more reasons for me to eat vegan: my own health and the future of our planet.
Health: 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.
Planet: 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. But 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 super important but takes a lot of time. But 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.

Plant Ahead’s mission

We believe that the future is plant-based. Our mission is to create a beautiful and sustainable planet where people and animals live together in a happy, healthy and compassionate way.

Plant-based Products

One way to inspire you to live more plant-based and sustainable is via our plant-based bowls, made from real coconuts. They are 100% plant-based, sustainable and handmade. I hope this bowl reminds you of all the amazing things our planet has to offer and serves as your daily reminder to live more plant-based and sustainable. 

Let’s Plant Ahead. The future is plant-based.

We’re just getting started. Join us!
