About The Planet Perspective
The Planet Perspective was conceptualised by Eon & Melissa de Klerk.
They decided to transition to a vegetarian lifestyle in August of 2018. Melissa had wanted to go vegetarian since 2015, but it was a challenge to convince Eon.
After watching a few documentaries on Netflix about how society’s food choices impact both the animals and the planet, they decided that they would cut out meat products from their diet.
They enjoy cooking and love to experiment in the kitchen with herbs and spices. They enjoy looking for recipes and trying them out while putting their own twist on the dishes they cook.
They decided to create this website to serve as a place to share their cooking experiments, as well as share their journey as they make more conscious choices.
What we do here
We test and experiment with recipes and share them on the blog.
We search for and discover restaurants, grocery stores, products, services and businesses who are trying to make a difference in the way society lives and consumes products.
We purchase and test products that are helping us on our journey towards leaving a lighter footprint on the planet.
We hope to connect with brands and businesses who have the same vision as us, and collaborate to bring more information to those who visit this website.
Through all of the above, we want to write about what we learn and share it here.
