Our Charity Partners

We partner with 3 local and 2 national wonderful charities & social enterprises to create as much social and environmental sustainability impact as we can.

All of the projects we create together are designed to combat climate change and create long term environmental sustainability.

Tree Planting

​We work in partnership with Birmingham Trees for Life  (BTFL) and The Woodland Trust to plant as many trees as we can with the help of a variety of volunteers. 

  • School Children  are wonderful tree planters, learning to respect their environment and understand the importance and value of urban trees.

  • Corporate volunteers - We can offer short or long term corporate volunteering tree planting which helps with employee engagement and job satisfaction.  

Reducing Isolation

We work in partnership with the Forest of Hearts to reduce isolation and create well being through environmental projects.

  • Green Therapy  promotes mental health and well-being with people working together outside in the natural environment, reducing isolation, depression & obesity.

Education

We work in partnership with Solutions For The Planet and the Smallpeice Trust to teach children about environmental sustainability. 

 

They are both experts in creating exciting learning environments for young people to develop innovative environmental ideas and solutions.

 

In doing so they prepare young people for the issues ahead, provide inspiration and help to create the next generation of Engineers, Sustainability experts, Innovators and CSR professionals​.

  • By working in teams the students carry out fun hands-on design & build projects that they will remember. Solving sustainability energy issues whilst developing creative thinking, time management, team work, problem-solving skills, enterprise, personal and social skills.​

  • These projects support the National Curriculum, meets schools requirements for achieving Specialist status in STEM and raises performance standards.​

  • All of these projects are adaptable depending on our clients preferences and we try to combine tree planting in the school where we can.

  • Corporate volunteers are welcome and can, if willing, assist students in practical activities such as soldering and give some insights into wind turbine design.

In the next decade, the most successful companies will be those that integrate sustainability into their core businesses
