Planting trees offsets our carbon footprints (work out your carbon footprint here) and also helps restore our threatened environments and what's more, trees are beautiful.
We have been running our Plant a Tree, Fund a Dream Scheme for a number of years now. With a £50 contribution, for example, we can plant 50 trees, each of which will absorb 1 tonne of Carbon Dioxide over the next 40 years .
Additionally through this programme, we match fund the offsetting voucher with funding for children from disadvantaged backgrounds to receive education in their country. For example in Vietnam £50 will buy a years high school education for a child for a year. Education is still the main route out of poverty for most of the world.
You can choose to go Plastic Neutral through our Global Citizenship Voucher Scheme. If you simply want to become Carbon Neutral now...
On all of our volunteer programmes, a part of the income received goes towards planting trees, for example, if you were to volunteer in Tenerife, the return flight from the UK uses 1.0 tonne of carbon per person,
We have tree planting programmes in the UK, Sri Lanka and Vietnam with plans to develop the programme in West Africa, the Caribbean and South America. Programme funding covers local communities maintaining and nurturing the planted trees.
We have beautiful informative awareness posters on carbon offsetting, plastic neutrality, please ask us and we will send them to you, free of charge to display at your school, house or workplace.
