An update post-launch
We want to start our first monthly wrap since going live with the Mutu app with a BIG thank you to everyone who has downloaded and signed up to Mutu.
Thanks to you, we have had 2,500 app downloads and 1,200 items listed so far. We are #2 and #16 in the shopping category on the Google Play and iOS App Store respectively. And Kiwis have loved our launch video, with over 55,000 views to date!
While our initial focus was on growing our userbase in Christchurch, we have seen interest from all over New Zealand. So, we are now encouraging Kiwis all over the country to sign up. If you know a mate who would love Mutu, please send them our way.
Thank you for your honest and constructive feedback about the Mutu app so far. As a young kiwi company, this is invaluable to us and we've been using it to make continuous improvements to the platform.

Mutu offers a more sustainable alternative to buying and this year we're excited to be participating in Recycling Week!
