Vikas Garg is founder and CEO of the user-generated, plant-based app abillion and he is on a mission to change the world by inspiring a billion people to go vegan in the next decade.
Abillion is vegan made easy.
On downloading, the app tells you: this app will change your life and life on our planet.
And I’m inclined to agree.
Since the idea was conceived in 2017, abillion has raised $6.5 million in funding, has crossed a million downloads and has surpassed a million and a half US dollars donated to the world’s most impactful animal rights and environmental organisations.
So how exactly does it work?
Vikas and I get into that however in short: you eat or purchase vegan, you review that dish or product on abillion and abillion credits one US dollar for you to then donate to some of the world’s most impactful organisations.
So basically you get to consume all the deliciousness while ALSO receiving money to donate to the charities you most respect.
In this conversation we cover:
- Abillion’s vision to shape a world guided by compassion, social responsibility and sustainability.
- How abillion lets us use social media for social good.
- In 2018, abillion began redirecting the company’s marketing dollars with a donation mechanism on the platform.
- The plant based trends Vikas is excited about in 2022.
And so much more!
About from excitement for the massive potential for social good that Vikas and team abillion are creating in the world, on a personal level – and perhaps you can relate – gosh it’s a welcome change to have a social media platform you can actually feel good about using!
Just when I was thinking it might be time to ban myself form ALL the socials… there is hope!
