Secondsguru is a young social enterprise with a mission to promote environmental education and awareness. It runs workshops, events, and talks to engage people. It also runs this website Secondsguru.com where readers can access a curated calendar of eco-events, guides on eco-friendly lifestyles, information on sustainable brands, and other resources. With the motto “Green Living. Made Easy.”, Secondsguru makes sustainable living a fun, creative and practical goal for all.
Secondsguru was born when the co-founders, Anuja Byotra Aggarwal and Lara Rath, were surprised how much time it took them to research and 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.
In addition to conducting talks, workshops and experiential learning opportunities, Secondsguru also runs initiatives to support sustainable living in the community – such as educational talks and presence at eco events. We’ve conducted book swaps at Earthfest Singapore, talked on sustainable fashion at the Climate Action Carnival by the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources (MEWR, Singapore), conducted beach cleanups on Singapore’s coastline, and organized many more such initiatives.
