About ImpactKarma Inc
Karma Wallet concept was inspired when our co-founder, Kedar, encountered the challenges of an all too relatable problem: trying to be a "conscious consumer" while not really having a way to measure or verify it. Kedar approached his dad Jayant, who had the same question when approached about the concept: How could you know if a company was following through on their claims and not just greenwashed marketing? What if they were eco-friendly but did not take care of their workers? Every option available seemed to either have tradeoffs or require a lot of independent research. This was the inspiration behind creating Karma Wallet - to learn if what you were doing and where you are buying are actually contributing to the future you want, Join this father and son in their pursuit for a brighter future.
