Our story

Our quest for making a change drove us towards deep questions to better understand the world we live in. What informs the way we view the world? How do we bring about lasting positive change? Our curiosity leapt us into the space of lifestyle and lead ultimately to the creation of Piece of Plate.

When diving head first into lifestyle, food and the connection to sustainability, one quickly confronts the vast amount noise surrounding these topics. We believe that translating knowledge into climate action requires a reckoning with the fact that food is so much more than what we see on our plates. Food is love, care, health, impact, vitality, life and part of culture. Food connects us all.

Sustainable lifestyle with a smile

Piece of Plate founder, Réka Gugán strives to democratise sustainable lifestyle in a digestible and enjoyable way. Armed with a cheerful attitude and a solid academic background, she works to challenge the ways we take for granted, and cultivate habits that matter.

She is driven by the abundance of opportunities to make a positive impact. Both on the individual and collective level. Her objective is to lift this knowledge out of university lecture halls and conferences, and to make it accessible, affordable and gratifying to everybody.

It's cool to be kind
Sustainable lifestyle need not be radical, nor should it be judgmental. It should be human, as humans are in the center of it.
