Yash and Sachi ManiarWhat we love most about the pollination project was how aligned it is to our values. It’s hard to find support of people who believe in your idea when you are starting out. Most people we spoke to in India were quite pessimistic about our idealistic dream of replacing every piece of disposable plate in India. The pollination project grant made us confident and feel like there were people out there in the world who believed in us. Secondly, they gave us support for things that otherwise would be hard to find support for.
