Specialist in direct mail, print and postage, bakergoodchild,has helped to plant over 3000 sapling trees as part of a carbon capture tree planting day that was held on 23rd November at Langley Vale Wood in Surrey. Members of bakergoodchild’s staff were accompanied by TV personality, Julia Bradbury who joined them on their conservation efforts.
The Tree planting day initiative forms part of bakergoodchild’s membership of leading national paper merchant The Premier Paper Group’s Carbon Capture programme, which is in partnership with The Woodland Trust and the Woodland Carbon scheme.
Wesley Sinclair, bakergoodchild’s Operations Director said, “early in the year we introduced our potato starch based polywrap to our customers, giving us something that is 100 per cent compostable and environmentally friendly. We have continued our commitment to green initiatives, by joining the Premier paper carbon capture program in conjunction with the Woodland Trust. This gives us the chance to plant new trees and rebuild forest in the UK, which will help to improve the environment around us for future generations. Team BG are very proud to be involved and will continue to invest and pioneer in green initiatives to benefit the direct mail industry as a whole.”
Premier Paper’sCarbon Capture programme helps to mitigate the amount of CO2emissionsthat are generated from the paper purchases made by customers by planting native woodland in the UK, providing a reduced carbon solution for businesses and organisations. The CO2 is captured by the planting of trees in new native woodland throughout the UK, through the Woodland Trust’s Government backed Woodland Carbon scheme. 100 per cent of the Carbon Capture charge goes directly to the Woodland Trust to plant native woodland in the UK.
By becoming part of the Carbon Capture programme, bakergoodchild is working towards its ambition to make the whole process of direct mail greener, and also to help educate the direct mail sector on how to act responsibly by ensuring that all companies recycle and seek to do their best where applicable, to minimise waste.
