Carbon Offset Shopping

Carbon Offset Shopping

Carbon offsets are a practical and effective way to reduce the effects of climate change by funding renewable energy, forestry, or clean water projects.

At Shop Green Today we have decided to support the Woodland Trust here in the UK with Carbon Offsetting and we also plant trees with One Tree Planted.

Help lock up carbon with a donation. Your donation will help us protect and care for our woods.

Capturing and storing carbon from the atmosphere is vital in the fight against climate change. The 1,000-plus woodlands cared for by the Woodland Trust absorb and lock-up many tonnes of carbon each year in trees, shrubs and soils.

By making a donation, you’ll help protect and add to this extensive carbon store, ensuring it continues to absorb emissions, as well as creating natural havens for wildlife and people.

These projects reduce emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere, like the emissions created from ordering something online. EcoCart calculates the emissions created from your online orders and donates the exact amount required to reduce those emissions directly to these projects on your behalf.

Did you know?

The average person in the UK is responsible for 5.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year.* When yo/u include other factors such as overseas flights, UK consumption of imports and the impact of other greenhouse gases, this figure may effectively double.

Trees eat carbon dioxide for breakfast!
