Bengaluru…April 2022…Wildermart, a Bengaluru based healthy and sustainable grocery store start-up has unveiled a month long the ‘Healthy You, Healthy Planet’ campaign on this World Health Day to highlight the interconnection between health and planet. The campaign introduces the four product pillars – organic, local, plant based and minimally processed to promote the health of consumers and environment.
The campaign further explains the four pillars. 1st pillar is Organic products – Chemicals in food cause cancer & diseases. Chemicals in the environment destroys soil threatening food security and leaches into water bodies; 2nd pillar is locally sourced products – Eating local reduces the footprint of the food. It keeps the food fresher – and hence higher in nutrition. It tastes better. And since local food is usually seasonal, it ensures that the ecosystem stays preserved; 3rd pillar is plant based products – Animal food is the only source of dietary cholesterol in our bodies. Plants do not have cholesterol – so neither pista nor sunflower oil have cholesterol. Cholesterol is made in animal bodies. For the environment, we know the havoc caused by animal agriculture – emmissions, waste, water shortage, deforestation, etc and the last pillar which is 4th is Minimally Processed – Food processing industry is one of the leading causes after fashion for the destruction of our planet. Mass manufacturing companies are spewing emissions, waste, chemicals, etc. with no consequences. And one of the biggest rainforest & wildlife issues today is palm tree plantations – which basically remove rainforests. They are the most common ingredient in every processed food today – palm oil. Health wise, processed food is broadly palm oil & sugar – and that’s not good for anyone! Obesity & most lifestyle diseases are being caused by this. Preservatives are also causing these diseases.
Shweta Thakur, Founder, Wildermart said, “Healthy You, Healthy Planet is the core belief of our business. Through this campaign, we are creating awareness and hoping to establish a strong link between our consumption and its impact on our own health and the planet. For eg: long term consumption of animal products is most likely to cause heart attacks and cancer whilst destroying rainforests, consuming 70% of global water and emitting Methane. Organic foods save our bodies & the soil from chemicals. With this campaign, we are introducing the four pillars we believe are key to a healthy you, a healthy planet. These lifestyle shifts are essential today to live a quality & holistic life. As always, Wildermart is committed to health & sustainability – and we hope through the campaign, people will start seeing the connections.”
Wildermart started because the founders were bothered by the overall consumption patterns and its detrimental impact on environment. Wildermart has always been committed towards providing healthy and sustainable products to its customers. Wildermart is one of its kind businesses which is built on the 3Ps of the Triple Bottom Line – People, Planet and Profit.
