Living

We love the idea of carbon neutral living.

We also love the idea of planting more trees, to create habitats for wildlife, green spaces for people and oxygen for all of us.

And so the idea of carbon neutral living came into being. We have calculated the amount of carbon dioxide given off simply by living, by sjhopping, breathing, watching TV and heating our homes, we then calculated how many trees we need to plant to capture that carbon dioxide and produce pure clean oxygen.

Carbon free living as a single person

£170.00

We are committed to making carbon free living a reality, and so we have developed a very simple, yet scientific approach to carbon offsetting.

Despite the fact that we all live very different lives, we have used the UK government carbon footprint data to work out an average individual’s carbon footprint.

We have then looked at how many trees we need to plant to offset that that carbon footprint.

For one person, (excluding cars and holiday flights) It will take 17 trees their entire lifetimes of absorbing carbon dioxide, and converting it to oxygen to remove all of the carbon dioxide produced by us in a year.

Will you help us to plant 17 trees in our Yorkshire based forests?

Carbon free living as a couple

£340.00

We are committed to making carbon free living a reality, and so we have developed a very simple, yet scientific approach to carbon offsetting.

Despite the fact that we all live very different lives, we have used the UK government carbon footprint data to work out an average individual’s carbon footprint.

We have then looked at how many trees we need to plant to offset that that carbon footprint.

For two people, (excluding cars and holiday flights) It will take 34 trees their entire lifetimes of absorbing carbon dioxide, and converting it to oxygen, to remove all of the carbon dioxide produced in a year.

Will you help us to plant 34 trees in our Yorkshire based forests?

Carbon free living as a family

£500.00

We are committed to making carbon free living a reality, and so we have developed a very simple, yet scientific approach to carbon offsetting.

Despite the fact that we all live very different lives, we have used the UK government carbon footprint data to work out an average individual’s carbon footprint.

We have then looked at how many trees we need to plant to offset that that carbon footprint.

For a family of two adults and two children, (excluding cars and holiday flights) It will take 50 trees their entire lifetimes of absorbing carbon dioxide, and converting it to oxygen, to remove all of the carbon dioxide produced in a year.

Will you help us to plant 50 trees in our Yorkshire based forests?

A hole in the ground!

From: £2.00 / month

A hole in the ground is one of our new entry level supporter products.

The trees we plant have all been grown by local UK nurseries, from seed collected in the area the trees will be grown, this is called provenance and is important from a biodiversity point of view.

We then secure land to plant on, go out in all aethers with our planting volunteers, plant the trees, stake them and protect them from rabbits and other animals that might otherwise eat young trees.

This whole process costs £10.00

We have broken this down into a number or more affordable parts, and so we would ask you to support our tree planting by donating £2.00 which will help us to dig a hole in the ground and plant the tree!

This whole process costs £10.00

We have brown this down into a number or more affordable parts, and so we would ask you to support our tree planting by donating £2.00 which will help us to buy and support a young sapling with its own stake to keep it safe in the winter winds, along with a rabbit guard to protect it from being eaten…

Carbon free motoring (in a smaller car)

£60.00

We are committed to making carbon free living a reality, and so we have developed a very simple, yet scientific approach to carbon offsetting.

Despite the fact that there are hundreds of types of car, and that everyone drives differently, we have been able to work out an average figure.

Our assumptions

We are assuming that most people, on average, will drive 12,000 Km per year (that is 7456 miles)

(If you do 24 000 Km, then simply select two of these packages.)

We have assumed a small car is any car, petrol or diesel that has an engine smaller than 2 litres.

Our calculations

It will take 6 trees their entire lifetimes of absorbing carbon dioxide, and converting it to oxygen to remove all of the carbon dioxide produced by driving 12 000 Km.

And so this carbon free living product is based on our cost of planting and caring for 6 trees.

Carbon free motoring (in a larger car)

£80.00

We are committed to making carbon free living a reality, and so we have developed a very simple, yet scientific approach to carbon offsetting.

Despite the fact that there are hundreds of types of car, and that everyone drives differently, we have been able to work out an average figure.

Our assumptions

We are assuming that most people, on average, will drive 12,000 Km per year (that is 7456 miles)

(If you do 24 000 Km, then simply select two of these packages.)

We have assumed a larger car is any car, petrol or diesel that has an engine larger than 2 litres, but which is not a van or a mobile home.

Our calculations

It will take 8 trees their entire lifetimes of absorbing carbon dioxide, and converting it to oxygen to remove all of the carbon dioxide produced by driving 12 000 Km.

And so this carbon free living product is based on our cost of planting and caring for 8 trees in our UK based forests.

Carbon free motoring in a van or motorhome

£100.00

We are committed to making carbon free living a reality, and so we have developed a very simple, yet scientific approach to carbon offsetting.

Despite the fact that there are hundreds of types of car, and that everyone drives differently, we have been able to work out an average figure.

Our assumptions

We are assuming that most people, on average, will drive 12,000 Km per year (that is 7456 miles)

(If you do 24 000 Km, then simply select two of these packages.)

We have based our calculations on an average van or motorhome.

Our calculations

It will take 10 trees their entire lifetimes of absorbing carbon dioxide, and converting it to oxygen to remove all of the carbon dioxide produced by driving 12 000 Km.

And so this carbon free living product is based on our cost of planting and caring for 10 trees in our UK based forests.

Carbon neutral short haul flight

£20.00

We are committed to making carbon free living a reality, and so we have developed a very simple, yet scientific approach to carbon offsetting.

We have first quantified the emissions from commercial aircraft and have then calculated the emissions per passenger.

We have then looked at how many trees we can plant to offset that those carbon emissions.

For a single passenger on a local flight (under 1200km, or under two hours)  it will take two trees their entire lifetime of absorbing carbon dioxide, and converting it to oxygen, to remove all of the carbon dioxide produced for that single one way flight. So if there are two of you travelling, and you have booked a return trip it will take four of this product to offset your flights.

Carbon neutral medium haul flight

£60.00

We are committed to making carbon free living a reality, and so we have developed a very simple, yet scientific approach to carbon offsetting.

We have first quantified the emissions from commercial aircraft and have then calculated the emissions per passenger.

We have then looked at how many trees we can plant to offset that those carbon emissions.

For a single passenger on a medium flight (1200km – 4000km or around two – five hours flying time)  it will take six trees their entire lifetime of absorbing carbon dioxide, and converting it to oxygen, to remove all of the carbon dioxide produced for that single one way flight. So if there are two of you travelling, and you have booked a return trip it will take four of this product to offset your flights.

Carbon neutral long haul flights

£150.00

We are committed to making carbon free living a reality and so we have developed a very simple, yet scientific approach to carbon offsetting.

We have first quantified the emissions from commercial aircraft and have then calculated the emissions per passenger.

We have then looked at how many trees we can plant to offset that those carbon emissions.

For a single passenger on a long haul flight (4000km – 10 000km or around five – twelve hours flying time)  it will take fifteen trees their entire lifetime of absorbing carbon dioxide, and converting it to oxygen, to remove all of the carbon dioxide produced for that single one way flight.

So if there are two of you travelling, and you have booked a return trip it will take four of this product to offset your flights.
