“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.”
