Individual carbon

Anything to declare?

It’s even easier than ever to jet set across the world, but what’s the real cost of your travels to the environment?

Did you know a return flight from London to New York releases almost a tonne of CO2 into our skies for every passenger on board? This invisible extra baggage is one of the main greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. Everyday actions, like driving to work or heating our homes, also release significant amounts of carbon.

But curbing our carbon footprint is not emission impossible. With the help of a tree or two, you can reduce your impact on the environment.

Planting power

You can boost our environment’s natural carbon absorbing abilities by helping us to plant trees. Trees are nature's lungs. Every one planted absorbs carbon, locking it away and keeping it out of our atmosphere. The more trees planted, the more carbon absorbed.

Donate to mitigate

By making a donation*, you can help to plant trees to mitigate your carbon emissions. £50 could allow us to plant 25 square metres of woodland – enough to store 1 tonne of carbon, the equivalent of a return flight to New York. 

*A personal carbon mitigation donation helps to cover the cost of land acquisition and tree planting, care and maintenance.
