A message from our founders

We believe that everyone of us can play a part in protecting the environment. There is so much we can do as individuals, with our friends, our families and our colleagues – and that is why we set up Giki.

We want to help people live more sustainably and we believe that starts with good information, provided at the right time in an easy to use way.
