Core Team • Chaint Afrique

We believe that we can meet the Global Goals in 2030 if we figure out how to make sustainable lifestyles inclusive for everyone


We focus on creating demand for sustainable consumption and production, facilitating sustainable business and rewarding those who participate in responsible actions via understanding the very essence of circularity.

We believe that Sustainable Lifestyles should not be a luxury. It should underpin the true essence of prosperity that aligns with balanced care for the environment.
