Sustainable paper sourced through carbon capture program

All our paper is from a sustainable source that follows the Carbon Capture Programme. Carbon Capture is a method of mitigating CO2 emissions and provides a reduced carbon solution. It creates native woodland in the UK and provides habitats for wildlife and green spaces for all to enjoy.

The carbon capture programme has achieved:

  • 66,712 tonnes of CO2 captured – that’s as heavy as around 13,500 elephants!
  • over £1.1 million raised for the Woodland Trust to date
  • over 266,000 trees planted (166.78 hectares) so far – that’s enough to stretch over 142 miles!
