Well done also to the good guys at ethical beverage company Karma Drinks who’re celebrating 10 years in the fizz business this week.

We’re in business to make the world a better place, senior brand manager Bri Tither, posted online. “We do this by making drinks people love because they’re refreshing, they respect humanity, and restore the natural world.

Tither says the work achieved by Karma’s Foundation within their cola nut grower communities in Sierra Leone inspires her to keep going.
