In 2021, we embarked on a mission to give back to the world. We are all responsible for this planet and so we have to do what we can to protect it for future generations.
5% of our annual turnover will be split between two charities (WWF and The Ocean Cleanup), and three causes: Climate Crisis, The Ocean Cleanup, Trillion Trees.
Climate change is the greatest environmental challenge the world has ever faced. Global temperatures have been rising for over a century, speeding up in the last few years, and are now the highest on record. This causes negative impacts such as the melting of Arctic sea-ice, prolonged heat-waves and rising sea-levels.
The Climate Crisis Fund are helping plant trees in areas that have been destroyed to restore our life-giving forests. They help provide equipment needed to replant seagrass in UK coastal waters and marine habitats, training for communities in the amazon so that they can better monitor and protect the rainforests and wildlife around them and safeguard polar worlds.
Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans, primarily from rivers. And the plastic that’s afloat within the oceans isn’t going away by itself. Plastic pollution in the world's oceans is one of the biggest environmental issues of our time, impacting nearly 700 marine species. Plastic pollution does not only impact sea life, it also carries toxic pollutants into the food chain – a food chain including us humans.
The Ocean Cleanup aims 'to remove 90% of floating plastic from our oceans by 2040'. It’s a world where our oceans teem with marine life, not discarded nets, bottles and bags. Where no human breathes the toxic fumes of burning plastic. And where every indispensable plastic product is used to make another.
Forests currently account for around 30% of the world's land area but are disappearing at an alarming rate. Since humans started cutting down forests, nearly half of all trees have vanished, with 17% of the amazon rainforest being destroyed over the past 50 years. Many animals also rely on forests. 80% of the world's land-based species, such as elephants and rhinos, live in forests. Forests also play a critical role in mitigating climate change because they act as a carbon sink—soaking up carbon dioxide that would otherwise be free in the atmosphere
Trillion Trees is currently helping to support and protect 56 million hectares of critical habitat for people and wildlife. Their support can help fund work to protect plants and trees, expand education into local communities in the amazon to help protect and restore forests as well as unlocking the potential for much greater global action to bring back forests.
Just £15 could buy 100 seedlings to plant life-giving trees. £50 could help fund training for communities in the Amazon. It's a long process that may take generations but every journey begins with a first step, knowing that our donation each year helps heal and build the world of tomorrow.
