Understory newsletter on climate and sustainability tech
Good morning Understory Community. We hope that you are well. This week, we are excited to share the Greencom podcast with you all. And for those signed up to our investors distribution list, we are excited to share insights into climate tech startups that are raising capital.
In our latest episode of The Understory Podcast, we spoke with Christian Mundy about how Greencom incentivizes consumers to make green choices. Christian shares how consumers can use the Greencom app to earn cash back on daily purchases and spend it to fund environmental projects in their community. The platform also creates opportunities for businesses to showcase their support for the environment and local initiatives. Listen in here to hear how Greencom is making it easier to live a sustainable lifestyle.
