We are certainly not Eco warriors, far from it, nor do we consider ourselves to be the perfect guests here on earth when it comes to the environment. We are, however, watchful of the serious issues that currently surround us all and are fully committed to doing our best in contributing towards a better, fairer, more sustainable & humane society. Mankind is responsible for so much beauty & good, sadly though we are equally just as adept at greed, destruction & inequality. We are very much behind the integration of the best of science and technology for a new society & resource based economy founded on human and environmental concern. A global vision of hope for the future of humankind in our technological age. Here are a few subjects that are of particular interest to us:
We all have a responsibility & duty of care towards the planet.
- Climate change
- Scarcity & inequality
- Extinction of species
- Human rights
- Religious conflicts
- Nuclear disarmament
- Animal welfare
For every £1000 spent with us from 2019 onwards, our own commitment to the environment means we will plant up to 500 trees = (£100/10% equivalent donation) through our chosen partner the Trillion Tree Campaign
We view deforestation as one of the biggest man-made disasters the world currently faces. It is a problem that needn’t exist with today’s technology and can be reversed so quickly, easily & cost-effectively to the immediate betterment of the planet. The cost to plant a tree varies depending on the location of the project and the type of tree being planted, and starts from only 20p per tree. The trillion tree campaign is the brainchild of Felix Finkbeiner who was just nine years old when he had an idea to plant 1 million trees in every country on earth. He was inspired by the late Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai, founder of the Green Belt Movement who planted 30 million trees across Africa. But Finkbeiner was determined to do much more. On March 28, 2007, the first tree was planted at his school in Bavaria, marking the official launch of the Plant-for-the-Planet Initiative. In the decade since, children and organizations across the globe have planted more than 15 billion trees in 190 countries under the guidance of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
*This pledge will not have any impact on the cost of your project and will be donated directly from our own profits. We will provide proof of this once we finish your project and the trees are firmly planted in the ground. We are involved in many other charitable initiatives, so if you would prefer the donation associated with your project to be allocated towards another worthy cause, then please let us know.
We fully support and use Ecosia.org – the search engine that plants trees.
The next time you go to surf the web, shop or look for something online via a search engine like google.com please consider an alternative that we use called Ecosia – the search engine that plants trees. With over 57.8 million trees planted by them around the world at the time of writing this, they are completely transparent and publish monthly financial reports, so you see exactly where the income from your searches go. Ecosia are more than CO2 neutral, their servers run on 100% renewable energy, and every search request removes 1kg of CO2 from the atmosphere. It is also privacy friendly as they don’t sell your data to advertisers, have no third party trackers and anonymise all searches within one week unlike some others. It’s an absolute no brainer to help the planet and organisations like this, rather than line the pockets of huge corporations.
