We’re delighted to tell you all about Pure Planet’s very own woodlands!
On 25 January this year (2021) we donated a tree for every Pure Planet team member - which was a wonderful 140 at that time! We teamed up with Winsley Parish Council to have the trees planted, creating our very own Winsley wood! Winsley is about 5 miles south of Bath, so a nice jaunt from the office.
The trees are currently still small and camouflaged by the meadow surrounding them, but eventually they’ll grow into a beautiful wood. It may take a few years!
Some of our lovely team (not forgetting Maisy, Andrew’s dog) have been to visit our Winsley wood over the last few weeks:
In 100 years a tree can absorb about 1 tonne of CO2. So... our mathematicians calculate that Winsley wood could absorb 140 tonnes of CO2. Which is flippin fantastic!
That equates to:
140 years of powering an electric car
10,080 trips between Amsterdam and Paris by train
91 households powered for a year
