Sandgreen Caravan Park have partnered with Play it Green to make their workforce Climate Positive, lower their carbon footprint, and give back to a good cause.
Sandgreen Caravan Park is an idyllic, peaceful and natural holiday park in Southern Scotland, nestled behind the sweeping curve of its own private sandy beach, their customers have the opportunity to enjoy the relaxation and freedom of owning their own holiday caravan or lodge.
Through their partnership with Play it Green, Sandgreen will be provided with weekly tips and tools to lower their carbon footprint and accelerate their journey to net-zero, while also making an immediate environmental and social impact through the trees they plant.
Enough trees are planted every month to more than rebalance the carbon footprint of their staff’s personal lives and all their work-related travel. This helps lift vulnerable people out of poverty, as they are employed not only to plant but to care for the trees as they grow in developing areas of the world.
Jan Hawthorn, the Park Manager at Sandgreen, said on the partnership:
“Here at Sandgreen, we do everything we can to have as little environmental impact as possible. It is important to us that, as a business, we help in any way we can to make the future brighter and take positive steps for the planet.
We are always trying to do more and constantly looking for new ideas – signing up to the Climate Positive Workforce scheme with Play It Green was a no-brainer and an excellent, manageable way to rebalance our employee’s carbon footprints, educate our staff on sustainability and help in repairing the planet.”
Chris Thair, CEO and Co-Founder of Play it Green, added:
“We are delighted to partner with Sandgreen who already do a lot of great environmental initiatives. As the holiday park is in the middle of such a beautiful environment in Scotland, it is no surprise to see the people involved in tune with and caring for their environment. Together we will make a bigger impact and look forward to a brighter future.”
As part of the new partnership with Play it Green, the management team and workforce will receive a weekly sustainability tip and related discount on a product to help drive behaviour change, enhance the culture, and lower their carbon footprint.
The weekly correspondence includes sustainability articles to ensure members not only become more climate aware but more aware of the solutions available to make progress in this area.
Through Play it Green’s unique three-step solution to climate change, Repair, Reduce, Regive, a tenth of all revenues also go to a good cause of the member’s choice. Sandgreen has chosen to support Sea Shepherd UK, protecting marine life and ecosystems around the world’s coasts.
Sandgreen will review the nine key programme areas in Play it Green’s Net Zero Framework, free to access for all of our business members to help them drive down their footprint even further.
All the trees are guaranteed to be planted and can be tracked by the public through the Sandgreen Caravan Park Forest Garden.
