About Evergreen Story
At 15, during stay-at-home pandemic days, teenage twin sisters, Anya, and Anvi Fenn, with a little help from their father, from their home in New Jersey, co-founded Evergreen Story, a free storytelling platform with a sustainable heart. We are on a mission to record, preserve, and share humanity's stories and use the medium of storytelling to support the environment. We make every story count by planting a fruit tree with a needy farmer. We publish thousands of oral stories from across India and the diaspora, and we hope to pay tribute to our common human spirit of perseverance and progress. As the trees connected to memories take root, grow and bear fruit in the wiser ways of nature, we at Evergreen Story hope to make every memory count. Evergreen Story's founders sponsor tree saplings from their own savings. To date, they have sponsored 50,000 trees, of which 12,000 have been planted in 2021.
