Last month, we became members of Ecologi – a company that plants trees and funds the world’s best carbon offsetting solutions. Since joining, we have been able to plant over 220 trees and reduced our carbon by 15 tonnes.
Who Are Ecologi
Ecologi was set up in 2009, when founders wanted a solution to being able to contribute to solving the climate problem. Ecologi helps individuals and businesses to help fight climate change by signing up to a monthly membership, with fees going straight towards helping the environment; by planting trees, funding climate projects and compensating for their carbon footprint.
In our first month of joining Ecologi, we were able to:
- Plant 115 trees
- Reduce carbon by 7.5 tonnes – equivalent to 23 metres2 of sea ice saved and 18,608 miles driven in a car
- Help fund a Mexican project to educated over 1,000 children about the importance of nature
- Help fund the first ever wind power project in Honduras that provides clean water to 2,000 local people
Here at Ballyhoo, we are striving to do better in terms of helping the planet. Like most, we are aware of the impacts a business can have on the environment around us, and we are putting in the work to ensure that our impact is as minimal as possible. Along with signing up to Ecologi, we are actively working with our office building and clients to create a world that will be sustainable for years to come.
A few ways in which we are doing our bit to help the environment include:
- Using UK based servers to reduce energy usage
- Recycling in the office
- Retaining cardboard to use in our own no-dig garden
- Putting pressure on our suppliers to go Green
