Ved is deeply passionate about leaving the planet cleaner for the coming generation and his mission is to find ways to produce compostable packaging material that does not harm the planet when disposed.

His quest is towards finding, adapting and providing these options. Ved was born in Faizabad, a little town in the North of India to two nature loving and adventurous parents who laid out a strong love for the outdoors. A big shift happened when at 16 years of age he spent time at a survival camp in the north of Scotland. He realised the importance of leaving people and planet better than what we found and also focused his mind towards positive contribution. He returned to India after spending 3 years at University of North London to help his father run Yash Papers, a pulp and paper business.
