As a minority-female owned startup, our mission extends beyond just sustainability; it's about ensuring that every product, every supply chain component, every partnership contributes to a more positive and equitable future.  To start, we've created the EcoRain® Poncho and are now expanding into bags.

Our Story

Portrait photo of Monika Dharia. The founder of GreenGear Supply.

In 2016, as a sophomore in college, I grew increasingly troubled by the negative environmental impacts of disposable petroleum-based products. As a sports fan, traveler and lover of the outdoors, I recognized ponchos as a disposable product particularly in need of improvement. After years of research, I designed the EcoRain® Poncho, which is made using sugarcane ethanol, a more sustainable alternative to petroleum-based plastic.

Today, GreenGear is committed to creating impactful products, pushing environmental and social initiatives however we can, and donating a portion of our annual sales to organizations dedicated to improving the environment.
