As part of Premier Paper’s Carbon Capture scheme, the company invited customers of the initiative to plant over 3000 sapling trees with TV’s Julia Bradbury.

Customers of Premier Paper who opt into the Carbon Capture scheme allow the CO2 emissions from their paper purchase to be offset through planting trees. As a corporate partner of the Woodland Trust, Premier Paper offers this service to clients, so they pay £8.50 per tonne of paper which goes straight to the Woodland Trust.

Customers and their clients all met at Langley Vale Wood in Surrey along with Countryfile presenter Julia Bradbury, to plant native woodland to help mitigate the carbon emissions generated from paper purchases. Ricoh and Bakergoodchild were amongst those at the event on November 23rd.

This gives us the chance to plant new trees and rebuild forest in the UK, which will help to improve the environment around us for future generations

Bakergoodchild’s operations director Wesley Sinclair comments: “Early in the year we introduced our potato starch based polywrap to our customers, giving us something that is 100 percent compostable and environmentally-friendly.

“We have continued our commitment to green initiatives, by joining the Premier Paper’s Carbon Capture program in conjunction with the Woodland Trust. This gives us the chance to plant new trees and rebuild forest in the UK, which will help to improve the environment around us for future generations. Team BG are very proud to be involved and will continue to invest and pioneer in green initiatives to benefit the direct mail industry as a whole."

Paper production is sustainable when it is supported properly through schemes like this one. Plus, planting more saplings means more trees soaking up the harmful CO2 in the environment. 

Premier Paper hosts the event each year so that customers can get hands-on with the tree planting they support through capturing carbon. The paper firm partnered with the Woodland Trust back in 2014, when it contributed £90,000 for planting 145,000 sq m of new native woodland.
