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 (nationalforest.org). The National Forest is a new wooded landscape for the nation across 200 square miles at the very heart of England. By planting trees, Blue Patch is contributing to one of the boldest environmental initiatives in the country.
Positive Shopping is printed in Hampshire on FSC*Mix paper that’s carbon neutral. The ink is water-based. Positive Shopping is recyclable.
