It involves taking responsibility for the carbon footprint and supporting initiatives that help combat climate change.
As part of our work with Ecologi we have funded over 11,000 planted trees, along with supporting several other global projects. Our planted trees are in the UK, Uganda, Madagascar & Kenya.
