What makes Veo ‘Earth friendly’ ?
At Veo, being the Earth friendly marketplace means that every product sold on the marketplace is “good for the Earth, and everyone on it.”
To do this we created a comprehensive Ethical criteria that we apply to ourselves, our vendors, and every single product that you see listed on the marketplace.
This criteria is based around our 3 Pillars: Kind, Healthy, Green.
