#StrongerTogether2021 March Trees Not Tees - Tree Planting Donation
#StrongerTogether March 2021
As a species we are very much in a climate crisis and during March 2021 we at Core Club Online are going to do our bit to help the cause. I’ve thought about the question long and hard… how can we make a difference? So I spoke to a few people and I’ve come up with this as a way of our #StrongerTogether contribution.
The environmental cost of making a race t-shirt is huge. It takes the same amount of water that a person drinks in 2.5 years to make a single cotton t-shirt, plus over 2kg of eCO2. If it’s never even worn, all of those precious resources were spent for nothing. Whether you run, walk, swim, bike, you name it, generally there is always a race T shirt if you enter a race.
Equally though, the environmental benefit of planting a tree is huge. It helps us fight against climate change by taking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, it provides a home for a diverse range of species, and it gives us clean air to breathe.
Now the cost of planting a tree is £5. The extra 27 pence covers all the transfer fees payable on the PayPal and Stripe payment platforms.
The goal? There’s always a goal right. A minimum of 150 trees. Wouldn’t that be something.
