You don’t have to be tree hugger to appreciate the need for trees but the more you print, the more we plant!

Woodland Carbon is a unique scheme to help companies reduce their carbon footprint by locking up carbon emissions through planting trees. We work with The Woodland Trust to create new woodland and harness nature’s simple and powerful way of removing carbon dioxide from the environment.

Woodland-carbon-capture-cert15How does it work?

The amount of CO2 generated in the manufacture and distribution of our paper is calculated by our paper supplier and our donation is paid to The Woodland Trust to plant native British trees right here in the UK.

What does it mean to you?

You may use a specially developed Woodland Trust logo on all print jobs where the CO2 has been captured from our paper purchases (99% of our stock is carbon capture qualifying). Using the Woodland Carbon logo enhances your brand and reinforces your own environmental commitment.

When ordering print work where you wish to use the logo you will need to leave a clear area on your artwork for us to add the logo to your PDF before print. If we are designing your materials for you just let us know when placing your order.

Our contribution…

…is certificated to us quarterly and displayed in our shop and on Facebook etc. In 2015 we planted 164 m2 of new woodland and captured 6.585 tonnes of CO2. That’s not a bad contribution towards increasing native British Woodland growing in the UK; particularly as we’ve been doing this for four years!

Did you know?

It is estimated that 25m2 of native British woodland captures and stores at least 1 tonne of CO2.

Woodland Carbon is an accredited, award-winning carbon removal scheme that is operated under the Government’s 2011 Woodland Carbon Code.
