‘…the surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal, or plant lives or operates’
By definition the word environment concerns and involves ourselves as people right down to the smallest insect. This is the number one reason to protect our surrounding.
When was the last time you saw a hedgehog, fox or bat in your garden?
The benefits of enhancing our environment far out-way the cost, time and effort involved. Planting a diverse variety of seeds, plants and trees in our own green spaces/gardens will attract wildlife. The old saying of ‘build it and they will come’, is very much true. In turn we benefit from a stunning display of planting through the seasons and attract a plethora of wildlife. Great for our senses and wellbeing.
‘By absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, trees help to combat climate change. A walk among trees enhances our mood, reduces stress and improves our mental wellbeing. Green spaces encourage more social interaction and a stronger sense of community. Trees help to improve soils and prevent flooding and erosion.’Woodland Trust – woodlandtrust.org
We are all too aware of the impacts we as individuals and businesses small or large have on the environment, the time for change is well and truly amongst us therefore we have built in some great initiates to help protect, enhance and preserve our surroundings.
We have pledged to plant a tree for every property we sell, we aim to double that number year on year. A tree can absorb as much as 21kg of carbon dioxide each year and can sequester 1 ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old.
Join the clean up.
Our local micro-communities often have some fantastic clean up/litter pick initiatives that we love to be apart of and cultivate. We have donated crucial litter picking equipment (pickers, bag hoops and bags) to support such projects and pledged to do more. If you know of, or organise a litter pick group please direct them our way to see how we can support.
If you want anymore information about our pledges, commitments or want to know how to get involved feel free to contact our team.
