We are excited to announce as a business we are now Carbon offsetting our energy use with the fantastic Charity the World Land. They have calculated our gym carbon footprint & the best way to offset this is to protect rainforest with this.
We love the environment and hope to inspire other businesses and people to do the same.
We do not want to make a living by having a negative impact on the environment, we will instead have a positive impact on the environment, we will do this by donating £5 for each new member for the World Land Trust to plant a tree.
Why the environment?
Its an issue that effects us all and it already is, the temperature has risen already, our reefs are dying & jungles are being cut down and habitat is being lost. We can make a change and if we will get stuck in we can fix this, we are an incredible when we set our minds to something. So if you’re inspired by this, first reduce your own carbon footprint as we have then make a donation to the World Land Trust, or better still make a commitment to offset your carbon footprint with the World Land Trust.
What we have done so far?
We have already Carbon offset the energy use of the gym since opening in 2012 and will be doing this every year going forward.
Firstly we have worked to make the gym use as little energy and waste as we can.
Bottled water –
Subra helped us a lot with this & the biggest step was to stop selling bottled water & installing a water filter. Bottled water required a fridge, plastic bottles and what people often forget is the transport of the water from the source to us.
Lights – We have switched the majority of our lighting to LED’s
The gym has Carbon Offset 6.42 tonns of Carbon emissions with the World Land Trust.
The coaches have raised funds to plant 25 trees and protected 2 acres of threatened wilderness habitat with the World Land Trust.
We have also helped other wildlife charities:
We Raised £465 for the Orangutan foundation who work to save Orangutans and their habitat.
£1185 for Save the rhino international who raise funds and awareness to conserve all 5 rhino species.
What can you do to help?
The most effective thing you can do is reduce your carbon footprint & encourage your work or business to do the same.
Then why carbon offset your own life or your business its amazing the impact this will have.
