It’s a big topic and we’ve a lot to learn. It’s going to be an interesting and challenging journey. Our aim is to figure out what works for us, so we make positive social, environmental and economic impacts.

To start with we’ve become members of 1% for the Planet. It means we commit to donating at least 1% of our annual sales revenue to environmental charities. We’ve chosen our initial charity; it’s Surfers Against Sewage and we’ve joined their 250 Club.
