footprint that people leave.

come up with the best way for usage of the modern technologies, so people and
companies can easily connect and do good for the environment. Social
collaboration is actually the way we encourage people to use the internet for
connecting with their friends and exchange things instead of buying from
strangers. Social change is really about the mindset that we want to "install"
with our products and services that everything counts and that we are responsible
for the environment and the next generations" said Bob Ilievski, CEO and
