The carbon footprint of Positive Shopping

We calculated the number of fast growing trees used in our publication and replaced these with ‘slow growing’ saplings, planted in The National Forest, Birmingham; Ash, Oak, Hazel, Lime, Rowan and Cherry. Positive Shopping was printed in Hampshire on FSC*Mix paper that’s carbon neutral. The ink is water-based. Positive Shopping is recyclable.
