Sustainability

CEO and Co-founder Scott McCulloch told PBN: “With veganism and the reduction of climate change being so intrinsically linked – our planet and environment are very important focus areas for us at TVK.

“We have a corporate social responsibility, which we take really seriously.

“Having a climate-positive workforce, as well as planting a new tree for every customer order – this really feels like the basics for us, and happening not a moment too soon.

“We are going to be writing more regularly about sustainability, climate change issues, and the general environment to ensure that our platform is used to shine a light on these important topics on a daily basis.”
