Welcome Green Monsters! We're your online guide to making conscious choices that help people, animals and the planet.

About Us

One Green Planet is a platform for the growing compassionate and eco-conscious generation.

We officially launched in 2013, with the goal of redefining "green," because, well, the earth needs a media company that’s really got its back!

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Our goal is to help create a world where we eat delicious food and use amazing products that provide us with maximum benefit and have minimum impact on the planet.

We plan to make this vision a reality by focusing on:

1. PEOPLE: Informing consumers about the downstream environmental impacts of their lifestyle habits and providing tools and resources that empower them to make better choices.

2. INDUSTRIES: Supporting companies that are reimagining products and entire industries to be more sustainable.

3. POLICIES: Using the power of online media, grassroots activism, outreach, and partnerships to shape people, animal and planet-friendly policies.

With over 6 million monthly visitors, we are the fastest growing (and largest!) independent publishing platform focused on sustainable food, animal welfare issues, environmental protection, and cruelty-free/green living. If that’s not enough, we also just happen to be the biggest vegan/plant-based food and recipe site on the Internet.

So, abandon your preconceived notions and labels. Together, let's reimagine the way we eat, buy and think.

Join our movement of forward-thinkers, conversation-starters, and change-makers today, and unleash your Green Monster!

OUR CAMPAIGNS:

1. #imagreenmonster: Tell the world what makes YOU a Green Monster!

2. #EatForThePlanet:  Take control of the damage being caused by animal agriculture and show the world how the fork can be an incredibly effective tool in the fight against climate change.


ABOUT THE FOUNDERS:


NIL ZACHARIAS: CO-FOUNDER & EDITOR-IN-CHIEF | [email protected]

Nil Zacharias
After more than a decade working in the digital media space, at companies like Yahoo!, DoubleClick (acquired by Google), PwC Advisory, and as an attorney specializing in privacy and intellectual property law, I decided to parlay my passion for the environment into building a purpose-driven media company. I oversee strategy, editorial, and social media at One Green Planet. I also write about sustainable business trends, enjoy art, and can play a wicked bass-line for "Bulls on Parade" by Rage Against the Machine. (Don't doubt this. Tens of people have seen me do it. It's completely epic.) I believe the environment, animal and food movements are interconnected and I'm on a mission to take conscious consumerism mainstream. To learn about me and the One Green Planet story, listen to my interview on America's #1 Sustainability Radio Talk Show, "Green is Good." Follow me on Twitter @nilzach


PREETA SINHA: CO-FOUNDER & OPERATIONS | [email protected]

Preeta Sinha
My passion for animals goes back as far as I can remember, it led me to focus on animal/wildlife photography during my college years in Mumbai, India. I spent hours in the darkroom with my tongs - developing, fixing, washing, and drying photos repeatedly to showcase the colors, eyes and emotions of various animal species. I spent time volunteering at local animal shelters, and cared for numerous homeless dogs in and around my neighborhood. When I moved back to NYC (also the city I was born in, give it up for Queens, NY!), I began a career in online publishing. I worked for companies like iVillage (acquired by NBC Universal) and UGO Networks (acquired by Hearst Corporation) where I was responsible for building creative product partnerships and finding ways to work with the hottest emerging businesses and technologies. Always looking for a way to reconnect with my passion (or obsession, you know, potato-potah-toe) for animals and conscious living, I started One Green Planet. My day-to-day involves handling all product vision and overall operations for One Green Planet as well as enthusiastically seeking out as much eco-conscious swag as possible to trick out my apartment until that bad boy is as "green" as a Scottish Moor. That's pretty green people. That's pretty green.


THE TEAM:


GOJI BERRY: CHIEF HAPPINESS OFFICER | I don't need a woofing email

GojiWHAT I DO FOR YOU:

Firstly, how dare you? But if I must, as a yogini, I find myself often pondering life and the cycle it follows for all of us. We're all interconnected. For example, when I see a squirrel happily scampering up a tree, a chain reaction begins in me that causes me to lose my ever loving mind. But then, you throw me a ball, and I'm like OMG! You see? Connections. Bottom line, I hold degrees in cuddling and belly rubs from UC BARKley and HOWLvard respectively, which makes me an expert in being the happiest being ever. I run a tight ship here and only offer kisses and snuggles to those that help my fellow furry-bottomed soldiers out on the field. Namaste.




KATE GOOD: EDITORIAL, EARTH MONSTER | [email protected]

Kate GoodWHAT I DO FOR YOU:

When it comes to the planet and animals, I will leave no stone unturned, no valley unexplored, no environmental issue unresearched and no puppy un-cuddled. We live in a beautiful world full of resources that we have to protect. Like, you can't just run down to the Duane Reade and hit up the cashier for more rhinos and have him be all, "Oh yeah, they're in aisle 7 next to the polar ice caps and plots of Amazon Rainforest." Hey, helping people connect the dots and take action for the planet is my thing. That's me.




SAVIN VIJAY: TECHNOLOGY | [email protected]

Savin VijayWHAT I DO FOR YOU:

My name is pronounced "seven", now if that isn't EVERYTHING, then I can tell you that I can code in seven languages, have seven meals a day, my workstation has seven screens and "Seven" is my favorite movie. But enough about me, right?! I am the guy who fixes problems that you didn't now we had, in a way you don't understand. I eat glitches for breakfast, battle code for lunch and deal with evils of 404 errors & slow loading times for dinner. I make the engine behind this monster-of-a-platform run smooth like vegan/palm oil-free/organic/gmo-free/ butter! I still have about 50 characters to go on this bio so here you go...Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, quam morbi, sed nunc. Vestibulum dictumst, massa in sollicitudin mauris integer.




ELIZABETH LEE: GRAPHICS & ANIMATION | [email protected]

Elizabeth LeeWHAT I DO FOR YOU:

​I love butterflies, like for realz, I loooove butterflies. Now that THAT's out of the way...I​'m the artsy gal who uses every creative vein in her body to come up with cool graphics and cute animations for you while making sure that my own style remains creatively cruelty-free. Did you know that even when brands state their products are "not tested on animals", they can still have animal ingredients IN them? Like helloooo?! It's that kind of chicanery that drives my art. I want you to be all, "Wow, that work is wicked rad...and I learned something important big time!"




KATIE LEE: RECIPE MONSTER FELLOW | [email protected]

Katie LeeWHAT I DO FOR YOU:

I toil away sniffing out the most delicious, scrumtrulescent, mouthwatering, vegan recipes to bring to you. I'm your foodie-friend, the restaurant-hopping, experimental-cooking, cookbook-obsessed, kitchen-hacking, and vegan awesomesauce-adding kind. I can transform your kitchen into a five-star plant-based food sanctuary, be your personal guide to converting any recipe or cuisine to vegan, gluten-free, raw, healthy or whatever-else-free without having to compromise on taste and texture. I’m your plant-based Dirty Harry of food. I’m your Julia Child with 100% less butter. It's a tough job, filled with late-night vegan donut cravings and yearnings for beet burgers. I’m here to ply you with amazing plant-based recipes that are kind to you, animals and the planet. So, what are you waiting for?! Eat up!




AISLING CRONIN: WRITER, ANIMAL MONSTER | [email protected]

Aisling Cronin, One Green PlanetWHAT I DO FOR YOU:

I adore everything that creeps, crawls, slithers, trots, swims or flies. For every uplifting or harrowing animal-related story out there – wherever there is a reason to celebrate, or a reason to get up and help – I want to make sure you hear about it. I’m your animal police, if there is a creature who happens to be under threat because of human foolishness, I want to shout about it and get you all to do something about it. I consider it an honor to use my voice to help those who have none … and if I can do that while sighing over yet another adorable kitten video (hey, there can never be too many adorable kitten videos in this world, right?), all the better!




RHEA PARSONS: WRITER, FOOD MONSTER | [email protected]

Rhea Parsons, One Green PlanetWHAT I DO FOR YOU:

I crack away day in and day out veganizing recipes. I'm serious. Got a traditional Jewish recipe that you want to fool your bubbe with? I've got you covered. Wanna have a bunch of people over for brunch with no meat on the menu and you're sweating bullets that they're gonna be all, "What's this? I'm afraid of this?" Never fear! I've got your pancake, vegan sausage, quiche or any other familiar favorite needs on lock. From global flavors to that food cart down the street, I can unleash the yum from any traditional recipe using pure plant power. Living a compassionate life should NEVER mean sacrificing good food and I'll be there every step of the way to teach you the tips, tricks, tastes and tactics to feed yourself so well that going and staying vegan are not only a snap, but your dinner inspires jealousy.




JONATHON ENGELS: WRITER, LIFE MONSTER | [email protected]

Rhea Parsons, One Green PlanetWHAT I DO FOR YOU:

If you've ever wanted to be that person who grows stuff themselves, comes up with clever ways to reuse things 100 times overs or awes your friends by DIY-ing everything, I'm the guy to help you. I'm here to teach you about permaculture, upcycling and green gardening all while spitting out tips on hacks like Eminem spits lyrics. The best part is, you don't even need to tell your roommate that you got that wicked cool idea for turning an old school CD rack into a lid holder for your pots and pans from me. Just say you came up with it on your own, I don't need the credit. I'm a giver like that.


OPEN POSITION: EDITORIAL, LIFE MONSTER | APPLY NOW

Life MonsterWHAT I DO FOR YOU:

Contrary to what the illustrious and revered Kermit T. Frog says, it's totally easy being Green. You just need to know where to start! That's where I come in, I show you how to be a savvy consumer, fierce fashionista, creative do-it-yourselfer and all around kick-ass person without animal products, GMOs, waste, artificial chemicals, additives, pesticides or any other mystery madness. Kiss those scary, additive filled products good-bye and learn how to DIY! (Actually, don't kiss them. You don't want your lips on those. Seriously, I care about you. Step away from the chemistry experiment that is your floor polish. Shhh, it's okay. We can do this together.)





OPEN POSITION: EDITORIAL, ANIMAL MONSTER | APPLY NOW

AnimalIS THIS YOU?

I work to make sure that you know all about individuals, businesses and organizations that do and DON'T have our fellow earthling's best interest at heart. I work one adorable monkey video at a time, to show you why its totally uncool to wear, eat, cage, or experience on innocent creatures. Wherever there is injustice, you will find me. Wherever there is suffering, I'll be there...yes, that's from The Three Amigos but it applies to me too, okay?


OPEN POSITION: EDITORIAL, FOOD MONSTER | APPLY NOW

FoodIS THIS YOU?

I'm a "foodie" and not just the eating kind... I'm the restaurant-hopping, experimental-cooking, cookbook-obsessed, kitchen-hacking, and vegan awesomesauce-adding kind (phew!). So yes, I'm the person who will share with you all such nuggets of noshing noteworthiness. I stay up at night dreaming up ways to cook with romanesco, combining turmeric and cardamom in a pancake just to see what happens and figuring out all of the different ways you can use silken tofu in place of dairy. I'm the plant-based Dirty Harry of food. So I just have one question. Do you feel hungry, punk? Well, do ya?
