Ecologi - Climate positive workforce
As your stereotypical Yorkshire folk wanting to save money wherever we can, we have always been environmentally conscious through turning off electrical items when not in use, using natural daylight in the office rather than electric lighting, repairing rather than replacing tech, using charity shops, as well as re-using and recycling as much as possible. Five years ago we started on a journey away from unnecessary and single-use plastics – we now only use plastic where it’s appropriate and try to re-use packaging before using new.
All of these things are great first steps, but don’t really make a massive difference. The Covid pandemic has given Eaglepolish the chance to think about what else we can do to make a real difference in the world and to leave a lasting legacy for the planet and future generations.
With this in mind, Eaglepolish has signed up with Ecologi to become a Climate Positive Workforce. Ecologi helps us in two ways. Firstly, they invest in current projects such as peatland restoration in Indonesia and convert landfill gas to energy in Northern Turkey to offset our CO2 emissions, and secondly plant trees to leave a lasting effect on our planet.
Planting trees not only reduces CO2 emissions, our leafy friends can help reverse deforestation, restore and conserve natural habitats for endangered species as well as other wildlife and give meaningful work to local villagers around the world who, by being close to nature, will help keep the cycle of protecting our woodlands and forests going.
Annually, Eaglepolish will plant 432 trees, which in the process will remove an estimated 32.4 tonnes of CO2 every year.
But we want to do more...
From June 2021, we will be planting one tree for every order through our online store. You don’t have to do anything other than place your order as normal and we will do the rest. How cool is that?
Please take the time to visit our forest at Ecologi.com where you can view the projects we are supporting, find out where we’re planting trees, and if you would like to support us further you can gift trees for our forest (a ‘clump’ of 25 trees start from £3.10).
We are very passionate about both carbon offsetting and planting trees, and we hope you will support us in helping to make the world a greener, healthier, cleaner place.
