1 % For the Planet
We are a 1% For the Planet business. This means every year we give 1% of our revenue to environmental projects that support our planet and the environmental challenges we face. We are a small business but by joining up with a global network of businesses all supporting something bigger than us, it helps us to feel and know that we can really make a difference. We talk about the projects we support on our social media so follow us there for more information.
