Our first paying customer!

Brendan Loudermilk @bloudermilk

We're jumping for joy today after hearing from one of our beta testers who enjoyed our product so much they had to pay for it. Without prompting, they visited our production site, went through our onboarding flow, and purchased our very first offset supporting a biodiverse tree planting campaign in Panama. They were even nice enough to send us some positive feedback and a promise to use our service again in the future.

It feels amazing to have launched and begin getting some feedback after weeks of hard work getting ready for the Fixathon. We can't wait until our next customer helps us support our environment.
