Empowering you to make impactful decisions for your health, your local community and the planet

We are building an app to help you find

eco-friendly stores in your area.

app ekolokal

A few months ago, during the COVID-19 crisis, Hélène and Nori met each other when Nori was a guest on Hélène's podcast about green changemakers in Japan.
They got on well and thought about doing a project together in the future.
The right opportunity came along when they heard about ImpacTech Japan social accelerator and decided to pitch Ekolokal to them.
The project was selected and it all started from there!
