Green Earth project aims to use blockchain technology to authenticate and reward all honest participants in the global food industry, and various products and services related to nature and ecology. Every participant from Food Producer/Farmer to Customer will be rewarded for their participation in the Green Earth blockchain using Green Earth Blockchain Token (GEBT).
Green Earth stands for transparency in the usage of natural products and natural resources. Green Earth aims to fight the widespread corruption in the global food supply chain, because harmful substances and banned chemicals are regularly being added to the foods and natural products, and they are the root cause for many health problems in people worldwide.
Green Earth Blockchain Token (GEBT) is the instrument of this change that we want to bring. The token will support the food producers working honestly and promote them on national and international level. This is a lifelong project, but the availability of suitable latest technology must be leveraged to make an impact. Because Green Earth is taking up a bold and ambitious project, it will need resources to execute the plan, and make an impact on the prevailing global setup.
Green Earth founders and core team have 20+ years of combined experience and learning in: natural farming, forest development, natural ecosystems, food supply chain, import/export, logistics, software industry, cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
Green Earth Blockchain has a core team of Founders and Advisors with wide range of business and technical experience, which can together make the project successful in its goals.
The Executive Board comprises the founders of Green Earth Blockchain, who are working in executive leadership role to grow Green Earth into a world leading blockchain project, with a top 10 User base among all blockchain/crypto projects worldwide.

Sandeep has spent many years in understanding the loss of ecology and solutions; lived in forests and worked with tribal communities.

Over the last 15 years, he has worked on raising food forests, named Aranyaani, and working on more than 2500 acres directly and other projects on a larger area as mentor. Aranyaani projects are now going on in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh in India. They cover very high Himalayan altitudes, in 40 villages in Central India, and also around Kanpur in association with Unnat Bharat Abhiyaan- IIT Kanpur. Aranyaani’s Ecommerce platform is now being merged with the “Ganga Project” platform.
In addition, he strives to keep many animals in a self-grown food forest, which is on a dense forest farm of 100 acres in a small village named Chedka, located near Satpura National Park in central India, about 130 km from Bhopal. He also advises Social groups and organizations, promoting the cause of disabled people, orphans, and other weaker sections. His work and knowledge has received wide recognition.

Dheeraj Dubey is an Electrical Engineer and Entrepreneur, with significant experience in both consumer and industrial businesses. On his father’s advice, he decided to be an entrepreneur from the start. Dheeraj hails from Sohagpur, a small forested hamlet in Central India. As destiny has it, Sandeep, one of the co-founders, also started his work in Sohahpur, and that was the genesis of this association.
Dheeraj started his career from the small town of Korba in 1997, with small electrical and civil contracts. Then in 2014, he joined hands with a close friend and old associate Dinesh Patel (also co-founder of Green Earth), and they started working together in DV Projects, which formed a collaboration of differently skilled persons to work on larger infrastructure projects. From a small size, DV Projects has now grown into a large infrastructure project company, having participated in projects worth many billion dollars. In 2018, they saw a need for specialized electrical work as a lot of Optifibre services and related IT work was anticipated. So Dheeraj founded Galaxy Synergy Private Limited, and grew it rapidly to multi-million dollar turnover.
In parallel, Dheeraj started thinking about a constant passion he had nurtured, which was preservation and promotion of traditional herbal knowledge and natural healthcare. Chhattisgarh state, being a heavily forested region, with lots of traditional health knowledge, was a perfect place to start this. Over time, this idea got discussed with this group and other friends, and he started Avani Ayurveda for this purpose. It entered into a collaboration with the state Herbal department. It was also felt that the forest produced Millets, are not getting markets as it needed a processing and quality testing plant close to it. Hence, Avani Ayurveda (https://avaniayurveda.global ) set up India’s largest Millets processing plant in Kanker, Chhattisgarh. Business Associations from Australia and Canada have expressed interest in the Millets processing project and related opportunities.
His thoughts were further strengthened as he walked on many journeys along with monks and devotees, including the arduous and holy trek of Narmada Parikamma. Thereafter the collaboration with Aranyaani, and now devoting the synergies to the Ganga Project was planned, along with using the transparency of blockchain technology.

He started his career with his family firm in Korba, called Patel Enterprises, doing Civil projects. His father had moved to Korba, Chattisgarh from Kuchh Gujarat, due to own business of wooden art. Then in 2014, he took over DVPL, and then worked hard to grow it into a major company.
As per the tradition in the family, Dinesh bhai was always attached to Satna Yoga Ashram, for his spiritual guidance. He supports many causes for nature, and also nurtures his own forest farm near Naya Raipur.
