Extravision supports Carbon Footprint tree-planting initiative
Extravision made a pledge in November 2010, to plant a tree for each e-card that they sold over the Christmas period. Working with Carbon Footprint and their local tree-planting partners, they are now delighted to say that they have been able to ensure that a total of 50 British broad-leaved trees will be planted in the North West region on their behalf.
Tree Appeal uses the local knowledge and expertise of tree planting partners to ensure the right trees are planted in the appropriate places. All trees are planted in reserves and managed woodland where they will live their natural lifespan and meet their biodiversity targets.
Simon Hill, Director at Extravision says” This year, everyone at Extravision has been very pleased to have contributed towards making a tangible difference to helping offset carbon emissions, whilst improving the local environment.”
"Carbon Footprint is committed to its long running UK tree planting programme", says Director, Dr. Wendy Buckley .""Our nationwide programme is focused on planting native broad leaved trees where they are most needed. Tree planting helps reduce flooding, regulate temperatures in our towns & cities & improve air quality – as well as helping biodiversity and creating habitats for wildlife."
Carbon Footprint states that each tree planted "offsets" our environmental impact by "breathing" in about 1 tonne of CO2 emissions over its lifetime. It's estimated that the average person needs to save about 7 tonnes of CO2 per year and so planting just 7 trees each year is one strategy for achieving this. The trees also provide sustainable habitat for wildlife and will enhance the natural landscape with native broad-leaved trees.
