Northamptonshire marketing firm backs international campaign to plant one billion trees
'Why go out in our cars when the technology is there, and we can still provide a great service?'
A marketing company in Northamptonshire has joined an international campaign to plant one billion trees.
Tony Hill, CEO and owner of Trill Marketing based in Blisworth, launched his company in January last year and now employs eight people.
He has now backed the campaign by software company RapidReg Ltd to help offset the carbon footprint generated by businesses.
“As a business we have made the decision to be as green and sustainable as we possibly can," Tony said.
"We’ve already decided that even after the pandemic we will be trying to conduct online meetings with clients and prospects rather than in-person, why go out in our cars when the technology is there, and we can still provide a great service?
“We understand the importance of helping the environment and reducing our carbon footprint wherever possible, and by supporting The Billion Trees Project has helped us to do this. As well as using ‘The Billion Trees Project’ as an amazing way to get new leads, we have made the decision to plant a tree for every new customer. I have already recommended The Billion Trees Project to lots of organisations and will continue to do so," he said.
Ben Westcott, from the ‘The Billion Trees Project’ said: “We work with qualified tree planting partners covering a wide range of countries including, Central America; Madagascar; Mozambique and Kenya.
"We’re on a mission to plant one billion trees helping businesses to go green, attract like-minded customers, improve marketing processes, and make the world a better place for just 15p per tree! Businesses’ energy supply alone contributes around 18% to carbon emissions in the UK, and forward-thinking companies like Trill Marketing Ltd. can make a real difference to these figures by taking a few easy steps."
