  1. I think it’s so important for companies to take corporate responsibility. It seems like a lot of companies either sink or swim in this area these days, which is sad. I remember reading that article about the different companies who don’t have corporate responsibility. It baffles me that they don’t just take responsibility and do what they need to do for their customers. I’ve learned that it’s really important for companies to be transparent! Thanks for posting this! 🙂
