Secondsguru was born when the co-founders, Anuja Byotra Aggarwal and Lara Rath, were surprised how much time it took them to research & find simple, practical ways to live an eco-friendly lifestyle after they had arrived in Singapore as fresh expats. Where to buy used furniture? Where to source organic and bulk foods? What could or could not go into recycle bins? Which eco-events would let them connect with like-minded people? What to do with all the books and clothes they no longer needed? So many questions, so little information at the fingertips!
Thus began Secondsguru in end-2014. As a one-stop portal, it has all the tools and resources you would need lead an eco-lifestyle in Singapore. From curated eco-events and local sustainable brands to handy tips to live green and upcycling craft ideas- we’ve got it all covered! We want to make sustainable living a creative, fun experience for you. After all, our motto is “Green Living. Made Easy.”
We also run initiatives to support sustainable living in the community- such as educational talks and presence at eco events. We’ve conducted BookSwaps at Earthfest Singapore, run student workshops at National Environment Agency’s Clean & Green fair, talked on sustainable fashion at the WWF- Malaysia conference on sustainability for youth, and organized many more such initiatives.
