Solopress partner with Woodland Trust to plant more trees and help combat climate change

Woodland Carbon scheme reduces our company’s carbon footprint by creating new woodland

Southend-on-Sea, Essex – June 17, 2013 – Solopress, one of the UK’s leading online printing companies, are celebrating today’s 10th anniversary of Recycle Week (17th – 23rd June) by announcing our exciting new partnership with the Woodland Trust tree conservation charity.

Solopress are now a business sponsor of the charity’s Woodland Carbon removal scheme, offering businesses an accredited method of removing harmful carbon emissions from the atmosphere by planting trees and creating new woodland here in the UK.

Over the next 12 months, Solopress have agreed to purchase at least 60 tonnes of carbon captured paper as part of the Woodland Carbon initiative. One tonne of paper purchased by us equates to 14 m2 of new woodland planted and captures ½ tonne of Co2.

“What’s good for the planet is also good for our business. Solopress have always gone to great lengths to ensure everything about our company has minimal impact on the environment, while also offering a wide choice of products that meet the environmentally conscious needs of our customers,” says Aron Priest, CEO and co-founder of Solopress. “Solopress are impressed by the excellent work carried out by the Woodland Trust, so we immediately signed up to their ingenious Woodland Carbon project as soon as we heard about it.”

  1. Good to see Solopress supporting the Woodland Trust – have the thought of working with the Wildlife Trusts next time

  2. This is a subject close to my heart.
    Britain used to be rich in woodland, which is sadly lost.
    We can’t return to that status quo, but every little helps!

  3. Thank you for getting involved with this fabulous charity. We should all take whatever steps we can to protect the environment .

  4. great to see businesses supporting these causes. This is what the consumer wants! So many companies miss a trick in not doing this. Well done!

  5. This is such a great initiative – we have so many wasted areas where more trees can be planted.

  6. What a great way to increase your credibility. Ethical companies are becoming so much more popular – people want to know they are putting their trust in companies with a conscience.

  7. As a member of the Woodland Trust, it was gratifying to read this article. The need for more native woodland and increased protection for “Ancient Woodland” is an ongoing problem.

  8. What a great idea. It’s really good to see businesses taking on board this kind of eco-friendly approach.
