Message from Co-Founder
“Many business owners believe that making the transition to sustainability is difficult, costly and has little benefit to them. That perception is simply not true…sustainability is now a must for business along with good governance and a positive social impact.
It is proven beyond doubt that companies who embrace these three areas and make them part of their culture, not only succeed but also grow.
Consumers and employees alike are demanding transparency along with a strong environmental policy combined with good governance.
With Play It Green’s network of experts and conscious business partners, we can help everyone achieve that goal and help all businesses take their next step to a more sustainable future”.
Head of Engagement & Co-Founder Play It Green
Play It Green was set up to provide businesses with a simple and cost effective way to be more sustainable, do good and grow their brand, all whilst addressing the climate emergency we find our planet in.
With our values of openness, togetherness and being customer led, our platform is designed with those in mind.
By putting purpose first, we empower anyone who works with us to leave a lasting legacy that will not only benefit the planet but our members.
If our members take advantage of our discounted products and choices they can not only save the planet but increase their profit and market share.
The team at Play It Green have years of experience and are driven to save the planet and have fun whilst doing it!
A climate positive workforce means your organisation is planting enough trees which more than balances the carbon footprint of every staff member.
This includes their personal and work life, so is a great staff perk and promotional tool for your business.
A climate positive workforce is also one that is actively working to lower its footprint and reduce its impact on the planet.
We take the average statistics produced scientist for each country (it varies hugely) and then offer a tree planting package that will more than offset the calculated footprints.
We understand people have different footprints, which is why we offer a number of packages to suit the person.
- £5 / standard employee per month – For each person it offsets their entire carbon footprint including up to 7500 miles or 3 short haul flights per year.
- £10 / big travelling employee per month – For each person it offsets the entire carbon footprint including up to 35,000 miles or 12 short or 4 long haul flights per year.
You can see the science behind this on our science page.
At Play It Green we have kept things simple as it is so much easier to scale our (and your) impact this way.
If you want to get down to a granular level and calculate your exact footprint of your entire business, not just your workforce, and offset that, we have some great partners that can do just that for you. Just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will will sort it out.
We publish all our purchase orders and receipts for trees planted with our planting partner and they undergo regular audits which we publish links to as they become available.
The fact that our tree planting partner is trusted by global brands and like us is a member of the United Nations Trillion Tree Campaign, speaks for itself.
The trees are also planted to Gold Standard accreditation, meaning they are monitored and protected in perpetuity.
In effect all the money we take in some form or other goes towards climate action.
We have put purpose before profit, which is why we charge so little for the trees we plant (unlike many other companies).
We also give 10% of turnover to good causes before profit has even been calculated.
Finally, at least half of the profit we make is invested in sustainable innovation, through our partnership with the Green Tech Alliance, to speed up the time it takes to end climate change.
As your business is likely to benefit from promotion due to membership with Play It Green, our advisors believe that the money spent should be a tax deductible expense for most businesses that trade however we recommend that you speak with your business’s financial advisor to double check.
We should point out that we do not charge VAT on our subscriptions.
All we need to know is the number of your employees and whether they are light or heavy travellers….that’s it.
Simply click the sign up button, tell us those two pieces of information, set up payments and your will be taken straight to your your Forest Garden and you are away.
The whole sign up process takes two minutes.
