The one-off pledge option is a great way to do your bit when you can. If you are looking to offset a flight, holiday or just help nature, the one-off pledge could be the best thing for you. A mature tree will sequester 1ton/co2. We have listed some average examples below to help you choose how many trees you may want or need to pledge.
- The UK’s average carbon emissions is 10ton/year per person.
- 1ton/co2 = 3,500km on a commercial flight
- 1ton/co2 = 9,000km by train
- 1ton/co2 = 3,950miles in an average size car
- 1ton/co2 = heating the average home for 4.5 months
- 1ton/co2 = eating 75kg of beef
Within our monthly pledge calculations we do allow for tree competition, so we allow 3 trees to achieve 1ton/co2.
Do what you can as every tree planted will make a difference.
