We’ve Started Our Journey to Become a Carbon Neutral Business

You might have heard a lot of businesses talking about becoming carbon neutral. This is a way to offset your carbon footprint by taking action to better the environment, and the world around us.

We’re taking action by planting trees through Rewards.Earth and plan to plant approximately 8,000 trees by Earth Day 2023!

This is just the first step in our journey to becoming the first sustainable debt solutions company.

At Consolidation Express, we believe in a better tomorrow

We wanted to make a difference not only in people’s financial lives but in the lives of their children, and future generations to come.

Helping people have more money for tomorrow is fantastic, and it’s what we love to do, but there’s no point in that if there’s no earth to enjoy it!

We needed to step up our involvement in environmental issues. So, we asked ourselves, how could we become a carbon neutral business?

We’re taking action to become a carbon neutral company

We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Rewards.Earth, who will be releasing their exciting new app, Carma, later this year.

Measure and reduce your carbon footprint.

Who is Rewards.Earth?

Rewards.Earth was born with one simple idea in mind - how could they create a platform that allowed people to do their bit to fight climate change? They believed that if everyone did their bit, we could reverse global warming.

Rewards.Earth is a company that not only allows people to individually subscribe to one of their plant-a-tree campaigns, but it also works with businesses to offset their carbon footprint.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Bridgewater Finance to make a positive impact on the environmental and social space,” said Jim Holland, Co-founder, and CEO of Rewards.Earth Ltd.

The UK trees are planted by The Green Task Force, which is made up of veterans who are transitioning from the armed services.

Many of these veterans suffer from conditions such as PTSD, but The Green Task Force provides them a pathway to nationally-recognised qualifications and ultimately employment, whilst assisting in their rehabilitation and reintegration through ‘Nature-Based Therapy”, with proven success.

Their overseas projects provide reforestation in some of the most environmentally challenged areas of the globe, helping people, communities, and wildlife.

What’s Carma and how does it work?

Rewards.Earth is launching their new app, Carma, in 2022.

Carma is an app where you can measure your Earth score. That’s how many Earths it would take to sustain your current lifestyle! You might think you lead an eco-friendly life but now you can check.

It provides a platform for individuals to offset their carbon emissions by planting trees in the UK and overseas.

You can also use the app to choose to shop more sustainably. Carma’s business partners all agree to plant trees to offset their carbon emissions. This way you know which shops, cafes, and other services are doing their bit for the environment, and in turn, you can do your bit too!

If we can reduce or offset the amount of carbon, we’re using day-to-day even by a small amount that will all add up and make a huge environmental impact.

Make a long term difference by choosing to shop with their partners.

How much does it cost to plant a tree?

At Consolidation Express, we understand that we all want to be environmentally friendly, but it can end up costing you more money. Eco-friendly or sustainable products can be more expensive and harder to access, especially if you’re already struggling financially.

Dealing with debts often means we have to compromise on the way we’d like to live. That means less opportunity to do our bit to stop climate change. We’d all like to live more sustainably but sometimes it’s not possible.

To answer the question, how much does it cost to plant a tree? To plant a sapling, in the UK, can cost the average person upwards of £250!

A young tree costs between £22- £55 depending on the type of tree, and then if you’re not as green-fingered as a professional gardener, you might want to hire one. A professional gardener typically charges £200 per day or more.

If you'd like to plant a tree without getting your hands dirty, you might be looking at somewhere like the National Trust, who will plant you a sapling for £5. This is a tree donation and helps the UK reforest their woodlands.

If you’re looking for a debt consolidation loan for bad credit and care about the environment, we could be the right company for you.
