We all know that our overconsumption of… well, pretty much everything is having a detrimental impact on our planet. Now.. We’re not here to go into the depths of climate change (because quite frankly we don’t know enough about it).
But we do know with the recent COVID outbreak, the virtual halting of all global travel, people not commuting, shopping or going places has led to less pollution, you only have to look at the major smog engulfed cities before and after pictures to see that lockdown has eased the pollution, if only temporarily.
Less pollution is a good thing, I’m sure you’ll agree.
It got us thinking, we’re a startup, a small company, we’re investing our own money into getting our fledgling business off the ground, so what could we do to help the environment in our own little way… After all, we spend most of our free time training in the beautiful Peak District!
We could just give to charity, but that seems too easy like there’s no real effort put into it. We could host some charity runs or races (we might still do this).
One thing we are doing and going through the process at the moment is signing up to 1 Percent For The Planet (where we give a minimum of 1% of our profits to the cause!)
Still, we felt it was not enough, then we stumbled upon Egologi, and instantly knew this was what we should do, it’s incredibly transparent and basically we’ll plant a tree for every product we sell as well as donating money every month to plant more trees!
Here’s a little word about Ecologi:
Our collective home is in the process of being turned totally upside down which is leading to strife for almost all life on Earth.
We know it’s preventable. And we know it’s not going to save itself.
So, it is up to us to solve it. But what levers can we pull? Reducing our carbon footprint is entirely necessary, but the transition of change is far slower than the time we have remaining.
The tools that we associate with fighting climate change are inadequate. What if that changed and the billions of us who care became empowered?
There are enough climate solutions that are out there right now, that if we supported them, it’d undo 30 years of carbon damage by avoiding 1,500 billion tonnes of CO2.
This is our opportunity.
It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to plant trees. They are also crucial to preventing ecological collapse.
At Ecologi we invest your money into projects that remove more greenhouse gasses than your own carbon footprint puts in.
Each month we pick the best CO2 reduction projects with Gold Standard certification, so you can trust your money is going to the highest rated projects and making the most impact possible.
When we say we put your money to great use, it’s important you see that it is. You can see the paper trail of the impact we make on this platform.
So what is in it for you then…
Well, you get AN EPIC Route of your making created as an awesome artwork, and you get to bask in the knowledge that you also planted a tree or 2…
Now get ordering, if not for you, for the planet!
