Business Development Manager

ABOUT US:

We are a business with a very simple mission: If we can change how people spend their money, we can change the world. We believe the brands that dominate the next decade will be those that have impact at their heart.

Did you know 10 million trees are cut down every year just to wipe our bums? We think that is 10 million too many, so we created a recycled toilet paper brand to combat climate change and deforestation. We are carbon neutral, plastic free, made and manufactured in the UK and plant 1 tree for every roll purchased. 

Since launch in September 2020, Serious Tissues averages over 1000 orders a month in our Direct To Consumer business, and has planted over 850k trees around the world to help in the fight against deforestation and climate change. 

We believe this is just the beginning and are now building out a range of everyday products that have a tangible positive impact on the world’s biggest problems. Our products are remarkably easy to switch to because they are highly competitive with the existing default option.
