COMMITTING TO A GREENER PLANET
At Shop LC, we strive to be a responsible company by offering great products at exceptional value and providing a meal to a hungry child for every piece we sell. We also believe we must be responsible stewards of the environment. Shop LC and its parent company, Vaibhav Global Limited (VGL), have ambitious sustainability goals, and we have been working hard to be a champion for the environment.
Today we are sharing some of these milestones with you.
