Father and Son Unite Over Passion for Doing Good
RALEIGH, N.C. - April 14, 2020 - PRLog -- Getting to know his dad as an adult has been a deeply rewarding experience for Kedar Karkare who, as a kid, knew only that "dad is an entrepreneur".  Now he gets to see what that means from the inside of their shared venture, ImpactKarmaTM, which places control over climate crisis and human rights injustice into the hands of the consumer via a simple, free google chrome plugin that reveals manufacturer's social and environmental responsibility scores when shopping online.

Kedar, after feeling he and his generation were hungry to act, but unsure how, came up with a concept that would empower conscientious consumers to make informed purchases that reflect their values.  He approached his dad, Jayant Khadilkar who had non-profit connections to help his son make the vision a reality. Jayant states, "We always tried to do the little things at home when the kids were young, recycling, composting, avoiding shopping at retailers who were unfair to their employees... It has been one of the greatest honors of my career to help my son realize his passion."

Kedar added, "As a conscious consumer, it's hard to know if we are supporting companies that take care of our world.  Through this crisis and beyond, we don't want to have any remorse that our purchases are fostering unethical or negligent companies."  Millions of products are purchased online every day. ImpactKarmaTM empowers consumers to have a  potent individual and collective impact by simply hovering over the product they want to purchase.

In response to the crisis, ImpactKarmaTM has filed a petition on Change.org to make sure that consumers' voices are heard.  The petition demands that corporations place people and planet above profit during the crisis and beyond. To support this petition, anyone can go to the following link: People and Planet over Shareholders and add their name to the growing list of global citizens who support corporate responsibility.  Installing the ImpactKarmaTM extension and signing the petition are some of the most impactful ways to support a shift in corporate responsibility right now and for decades to come.

ABOUT IMPACTKARMATM

This plugin is the first in what will become a suite of consumer empowerment tools born of the ImpactKarma (https://impactkarma.com)TM mission. The company will next be launching a marketplace where consumers can buy from ethical and sustainable retailers. There buyers will earn Karma CreditsTM based on how the company they purchase from takes care of people and the planet.  Consumers can then redeem credits for discounts, offers, and free products.
