This is very much reflected in our work culture to the way we embrace our customers from different walks of life and align ourselves with personalities who inspire and unite us,” she adds.

Smart encourages subscribers to use their online platforms for constructive conversations on diversity and inclusivity, as well as to share their inspiring stories using the official hashtag #SimplyLove.

The #SimplyLove campaign is part of Smart’s bigger advocacy for a Better World, which aims to inspire people to commit to sustainable actions with lasting positive impacts on society. As a brand, Smart encourages everyone to ignite their passions to help change the world for the better.
