Carbon mitigation for small businesses and households

Posted on Thursday, September, 26th, 2019

We had a fantastic week at the Chelsea Flower Show - met hundreds of people with loads of questions about what we do. We found great interest in our new small business and household Carbon Clubs, which we set up recently to enable small businesses, and households to mitigate their carbon footprints through properly certified woodland creation in the UK - in the same way that our bigger partners have been able to do these past 14 years.

Both Clubs are designed to make the process as straighforward as possible, in order to get new trees in the ground as quickly as possible.

In each case three pre-set levels of footprint, based on average figures derived from government data, are offered. Alternatively, if you already know your footprint, or you want to do more, you can enter a specific offset level in the field provided. Membership is also flexible: you can leave, re-join or adjust your Club offset level according to your own changing circumstances.

You can find the small business Club here.

And the household Club here.

Membership is via monthly direct debit, with no minimum period.

At Chelsea we also had an overwhelming number of questions about separate flight offsets, so you can now do that with us on a one-off basis.

You'll always know which woodland you are supporting via the Club or your flight nitigation, and there's more on our current project here.
