Carbon Offset Tree Planting in Uganda
50p plants a tropical hardwood tree.
Plant the iconic Mvule (Iroko) tree and two companion species - small costs- big benefits.
Donate £18 to plant 36 trees (or a Standing Order £1.50 per month) to be carbon neutral.
The UK government calculates your carbon footprint using the 'production method'. This means that they only calculate your footprint for activities in the UK (about 6 tonnes per adult). But some half or more of your carbon footprint includes manufacturing and supply chains from overseas. Therefore, we use the 'consumption method' to calculate the average UK adult's carbon footprint (about 8-10 tonnes) for a more realistic carbon footprint.
The 36 tropical hardwood trees of the Tri-species project will capture an estimated 16 tonnes of CO2 per year ( = 4.36 tonnes carbon) after allowing for an annual mortality rate.

Plant 36 Trees
12 Mvule (Iroko) + 24 Companion species.
Set up a Standing Order for as little as £1.50 per month.
Contact our Chairperson email@example.com to set up SO.
We calculate your organisation's carbon footprint, or you decide simply how many trees you wish to plant.
One mvule tree can offset 40 tonnes CO2 over a minimum of 80 years – over 4 times more carbon than an oak tree of similar age. The average UK carbon footprint is about 10 tonnes CO2 per annum. Your 36 trees can capture over 16 tonnes CO2/pa

For the average UK citizen £18 pa will allow sponsors to be carbon neutral.
For £3 per month
(The price of a cup of coffee)
we can plant 72 trees per year
We work with a broad range of businesses and institutions helping them to become carbon neutral and carbon negative.

We consider carbon negative status is achieved if offsets are at least 20% greater than calculated carbon footprint.
