Working with Ecologi

In February 2022, we teamed up with Ecologi enabling us to automate the purchasing of trees and carbon offsets to tackle some of the worlds most critical climate solutions with ease. Since that date, we have been planting trees and offsetting carbon with every order placed both online and offline.

Our trees are located all over the world in locations such as Madagascar, Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique, Nicaragua and right here in the UK. Each tree can be located via it's unique ID number and is fully traceable.

Our carbon offsets go towards helping projects such as Improving the Efficiency of Metro Transport in India, Generating clean electricity from hydropower in India, Producing electricity from wind power in Northeast Thailand, Wind power generation in Bac Lieu Province, Vietnam to name a few!

We are currently planting 1 tree and offset 10kg of carbon for every £25 spent on print products.
