Apr 20, 2022

Watch Episode 174 with Vikas Garg:


Today’s guest is Vikas Garg, the creator and founder of the app abillion, which helps users all over the world create a more sustainable and vegan future. The app allows people to find and review vegan-friendly foods and products no matter where they are. In addition to turning folks plant-based and introducing them to veganism, the app supports vegan animal sanctuaries in real time. Vikas talks to us about how this app is creating positive change through large and powerful ripple effects that start off small. 

Vikas was born in India but came to the USA at a young age and puts the “humane myth” about cows used by the food industry to rest for those who are curious about how cows are treated in both countries. He explains to us that although cows are viewed differently in both countries, they suffer the same cruel fates whether they are used by the dairy or meat industries in both places. 

Vikas is passionate and about creating a more conscious, compassionate world. His episode today will take you into a deeper understand of how the world is changing through one app, and how we personally can change the world in a meaningful way as individuals and with our time spent on social media.

Balance Hormones, Eliminate Toxins with Functional Medicine Doc, Dr. Koz
