How It First Started
Enviropledge was launched to ask people to make small lifestyle changes to reduce their carbon footprint.
We worked with earth scientist, Dr Rachel Gavey to help us understand the carbon footprint of every day activities.
Together, we turned scientific jargon into every day language that laymen can understand in the hope by making this more clear more people would start to make small changes.
The idea is that if many people made small changes it could have a considerable impact on the environment.
Over 1900 pledges have been taken so far with over 70 tonnes of estimated CO2e improvements.
We also incorporated some of these activities into a quiz to see how well you know the impact of every day activities on the environment.
Making a difference
Making simple changes with real impact
Whilst working on the pledges & quiz, we came up with a new idea. Instead of buying and sending greeting cards, we could create an online version that not only reduces wastes but also plants a tree.
We started working with JustOneTree to plant one tree for every e-card sold and created a variety of e-cards, that can be customised, downloaded and sent to delighted recipients.
Out hope is that the e-cards should help reduce waste, plant trees and provide as much customisation as you need. All for less than a card and a stamp.
At our last count, we had helped plant over 1,600 trees, which we don’t think is a bad start. We would love your help to build on that number.
