INTRODUCTION

A staggering thirty million tonnes of litter are collected from Britain’s streets every year with the clean up costing British taxpayers a staggering £1 billion.

THE MOVEMENT

Trash for Trees is an environmental movement created by Our Green City. This environmental movement aims to help reduce the litter crisis we’re currently facing on our streets by encouraging individuals and organisations to dispose of their waste in an environmentally conscious manner. As a reward to the individual and organisation as well as an even bigger reward back to mother nature the Trash for Trees movement wants to plant 1 tree sapling for every 10kg of litter collected and disposed of using the correct recycling methods, the collected litter will be monitored through partnerships with local waste recycling plants, as well as collaborating with local authorities. We will also reach out to local environmental protection groups, schools, colleges, universities, businesses and all organisations that wish to contribute by helping with the litter collections, tree planting and much more.

Around 2.25m pieces of litter are dropped on the streets of the UK every day, if we collected and converted that into 10kg of litter for each new tree, in 1 day we could plant 8,219 tree saplings.

Over the next five years local authorities will come under even more financial pressure and they will have to cut back on other vital services to keep tackling this environmental problem, we can already start to see environmental degradation across large areas of Britain and people’s sense of wellbeing is declining rapidly.

Trash for Trees aim to plant tree saplings far and wide, starting in our city centres where pollution is at its peak. If we can safely plant a tree without compromising on the health & safety of the general public then that is what we will do! Green spaces, car parks, roof tops, and many more, the planting possibilities are endless.

THE COSTS

Trash for Trees is partnering with fundr.org for this first round of eco impact funding. This funding will help create the movement that we all most desperately need, from the creation of full-time digital activist positions to the sourcing of tree saplings and ultimately the collaboration we require with local authorities and the UK Government. We need to make this movement a permanent social impact organisation, so any financial help however big or small will make a huge difference… If you can’t afford to donate financially then donating your personal time to help the movement succeed is another great way of ‘doing your bit’. 

All project costs are segregated into various critical project demands, including:

  • CIC Setup
  • Policies + Procedures
  • Direct Staffing Costs
  • Tree Sapling Costs
  • Collaboration Costs
  • PR Services
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Legal + Insurance

 

THE BOTTOM LINE

“As the crisis continues to escalate…

… in our natural world, we refuse to turn away from the climate catastrophe and species extinction. For fundr.org, helping the environment is a priority. We aim to back projects that help tackle climate change, help projects that restore nature to its former glory and ultimately help reduce the pollution we create, giving these projects the prominence, they deserve, often which other crowdfunding platforms forget about these major global issues, but not fundr.org. At this pivotal time for our species and our planet, we are determined to educate people about threats, consequences and solutions based on scientific facts, not political prejudice or business interests.” (Marc Fenwick, Fundr Founder)
