It’s been said that “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”
As a small social impact business on a big mission, the only way we go to such far-flung places to rescue complex waste streams is through our strong partnerships with a range of companies, from global fashion brands, impact assessors to manufacturers, who comply with our code of conduct. Meet some of them here.
