On top of being carbon negative, we wanted to go the extra mile and donate 10% of our profits to two partnership charities, which alleviate the effects of environmental damage through protection and conservation. We’ve teamed up with RAINFOREST TRUST UK and JUSTONEOCEAN to help us get our donations to the right place.
Rainforest Trust is one of the world’s most respected and successful conservation charities, and works in partnership with trusted local NGOs and indigenous communities to save the world’s most threatened rainforests and tropical ecosystems. Rainforest Trust has been protecting rainforests for over 30 years and has already placed over 24 million acres of threatened habitat under permanent protection.
Safeguarding existing rainforests is one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways an individual can fight climate change, as every acre safely stores over 100 tonnes of carbon that could otherwise enter the atmosphere as the greenhouse gas CO2. And as well as storing billions of tonnes of carbon, the world’s rainforests produce 20% of the planet’s oxygen, stabilise global weather patterns, provide habitat for thousands of endangered species and sustain the livelihoods of millions of indigenous people. In short, we can’t really live without them.
Rainforest Trust UK guarantees that 100% of all donations are directed towards direct conservation action as all its operating expenses are covered by its board members and Gift Aid.
Just One Ocean is a UK registered ocean conservation charity and their mission is to protect the ocean for future generations through science, education, and communication. One of the greatest threats facing the ocean at this time is plastic pollution and much of their work concentrates on this particular issue. Just One Ocean conduct their own research projects into various aspects of this problem and also provide support to scientist around the world as they strive to find answers and solutions.
It could be argued that one of the biggest problems facing the environment today is the belief that most people think that someone else will fix it. By working together we can change that view and help to save our ocean.
