How did you come up with the concept? 💡

Simon and Jerome were in Tarifa, Spain during a rainy day, and they started talking about how the concept of sustainability is not transparent. Neither Simon nor Jerome knew how to reduce their impact on the planet. Both agreed that they never knew if they could trust all the marketing campaigns companies create to boast about how sustainable they are. They then decided to find it out, and solve this personal problem they had while at the same time, sharing the solution with the whole world.

What is Palau’s mission? 🌍
