Give back to the planet by offsetting your carbon footprint with the gift of trees
Many of us try to keep our lives environmentally friendly, but did you know it takes nine trees to balance the average UK citizens’s annual carbon consumption? It’s around this concept that 9Trees has taken root.
The company strives to balance carbon, provide habitats for wildlife and create jobs – a worthy cause for sure. You can support the cause and put your mind at ease by subscribing, and for each year you subscribe, the 9Trees team will plant nine trees. The trees are planted in new woodland in England or Wales, geolocated and then conserved and managed. The woodlands are distributed through locations such as Powys, Anglesey, Ceredigion and Gloucestershire. In addition to individual subscribers, 9Trees are on the lookout for business sponsorship to support the creation of new woodland areas throughout Wales and the Border counties. 9Trees’ focus on biodiversity means that they not only bring equilibrium to woodlands, but also the wildlife within it.
“The trees we plant now will be your legacy for the future,” explains director Michael Cunningham.
Whether you subscribe yourself, gift a subscription, or join with friends and family, this is a great way to feel good, rebalance your carbon footprint and add life to the local landscape.
