A sustainable journey is an everyday doing of conscious steps which turns into a habit. We all have to make an effort. Period.
Founder, Radhika Mayani has lived in India, Dubai, and currently in Singapore. Having worked in hospitality industry in Singapore left her shocked seeing the wastage that happens in the hotels which triggered her need to find a solution and the fight waste problem.
This began a long journey of starting Left-handesign® in Singapore established in the year of 2017. A passionate nature and stationery lover resulted into finding a perfect balance between the both hence the launch of 'BĪJ' collections which ranges from Pens, Pencils, Notebooks and many more stationery products. Embedded with seeds creating an experience for the users after it reaches the end of life.
Radhika believes a key solution lies in creating awareness of these products and make it a global name replacing all single use stationery in offices, schools, universities, government organisations, hotels and alike.
