Our Story

Disha Punn

During an early morning run on a beach in Mexico, Dmytriy Pereklita was taken back by the amount of garbage he came across. He began to remove the litter one by one, most of which was single-use plastic.

Dmytriy removed over 4 bags, two buckets and several handfuls of garbage from the beach; but it was not enough. He knew for every piece he picked up, he was leaving thousands behind to be washed up into the sea.

Since then Dmytriy found a new purpose...

But he knew he could not do it alone. Dmytriy was determined to find a strategy that would encourage every person on the planet to contribute to resolving this global pollution problem; and that began with an app that would inspire every person on the planet to pick up 1 piece of litter a day...
