2021: A Greenr Journey

Updated: Feb 7

Please note: this blog post was written before our rebrand from our original name (Greenr) to Canopey so if you read the title above and were a little bit confused, that's why!


As 2021 draws to a close we want to thank you for being with us on the start of our journey building the UK's sustainable shopping platform.


We're currently in the process of building the platform thanks to a raft of grant and investment money. We're SO excited to begin showing you Greenr 1.0!

Exciting milestones

๐Ÿ—“ We started sharing the Greenr story on social media back in June

๐Ÿ’Œ A month later we had our Greenr landing page live along with this email newsletter

๐Ÿ“ฃ More than 2,000 of you have already become followers on our journey

๐Ÿ’ฐ We've raised ยฃ10k in grants and even more from a friends and family investment round


We've covered everything from how we picked our name, to the sustainable paint industry, the world's first second-hand shopping centre, a series of our recommended Christmas gift ideas, and much much more.


A final 2021 announcement

We've very pleased to be welcoming a brilliant new member to the founding team: Emma Andrews, our new Chief Technical Officer. ๐ŸŽ‰
