Carbon Offset your Stay with Broadway Manor Cottages

 

Carbon Offset your stay with Broadway Manor CottagesYour stay in one of our Cotswold holiday cottages, in the protected landscape of the Cotswolds AONB has a carbon footprint - the quantity of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other climate changing greenhouse gases which are emitted in the burning of fossil fuels for electricity, heating and other activities.

You can reduce the footprint of your stay by simply turning off lights and appliances when not in use, fill the kettle with only as much water as you need and by turning off heating when you are not in the room or cottage.

In conjunction with Carbon Footprint our guests have the opportunity to carbon offset their stay with us by purchasing carbon offsets that support Verified Carbon Standard projects (VCS aims to be the global bench mark standard for project based voluntary emission reductions).

Our guests have the choice of: 'Pledge a Tree' in the West Midlands area through a UK Tree Planting Scheme (in conjunction with 'Tree Appeal'), or reforestation projects in the Great Rift Valley, Kenya.

 

UK Tree Planting Project

Planting trees is a great way to offset your carbon footprint and become carbon neutral. Through photosynthesis trees absorb carbon dioxide to produce oxygen and wood. By helping to plant a UK tree our Tree Appealguests are helping to:

As at November 2011, one tree, equal to about 1 tonne of CO2, costs £13.50 (inclusive of 20% VAT) and may be purchased at the time of booking (see booking form for details). Our guests receive a personalised Carbon Footprint certificate confirming their purchase.

Further details about the UK Tree Planting Scheme can be found at: www.carbonfootprint.com/plantingtrees.html

 

Pledge a Tree in the Great Rift Valley, Kenya

Kenyan reforestation projectThe reforestation activities in the Great Rift Valley are being lead by a small community based project team called Escarpment Environment Conservation Network. All trees that are planted are native to the Great Rift Valley and will be carefully planted and managed so as to live their natural lifespan and meet their biodiversity targets. Each tree planted helps:

As at November 2011, one tree, equal to about 1 tonne of CO2, costs £9.00 (inclusive of 20% VAT) and may be purchased at the time of booking (see booking form for details). Our guests receive a personalised Carbon Footprint certificate confirming their purchase.

Further details about the Kenyan Reforestation Scheme can be found at: www.carbonfootprint.com/plantingtreesinkenya.html
