25-year-old Nathan Raab was devastated when he became one of hundreds of pilots who lost their jobs as planes were grounded during the height of the pandemic.

Raab now runs ‘Pointless Plants’ and aims to help the environment by committing to planting 10 trees for every order his company receives. He has the ultimate aim of providing one million new trees around the globe by the end of 2025.
