Too many people today ignore the idea of spirituality and focus on existing purely in the here and now. They focus mainly on what’s best for them rather than what’s best for their planet and those who share it with them. This thinking resulted in the environmental challenges we are facing today. Presently, we are at the stage when there is a dire need to take action against these challenges.
Humans are stuck in the vicious cycle where they grow food, use products, and then dispose of those products openly without thinking about the planet. But there are few people out there who are still striving to protect the planet, who try to help humans live comfortable lives on this planet.
Meet these female entrepreneurs who are among those people who are protecting their environment. This diverse mix of women will introduce new ideas, help us to promote more sustainable communities, and may even find an innovation that changes the way we eat. These women might modernize this world.

Reham Fagiri, Co-founder and CEO of AptDeco
Reham Fagiri is the co-founder and CEO of AptDeco. She saves furniture and fixtures from landfills. She was born and raised in Sudan.

So she founded AptDeco, which manages all the nuts and bolts that come with buying and selling used furniture, including online payments, assembly, pickup, and delivery. Fagiri basically made it easier to upcycle the old furniture than take it to a landfill.
