Black Friday Waste

Have NO REGRETS this Black Friday

November 25, 2020

Safe to say here at Terra Neutra we're not huge fans of Black Friday, it being a prime example of wasteful, climate-damaging mass consumerism!

This year Black Friday and Cyber Monday spending in the UK is forecast to increase from £5.6 billion (2019) to £6 billion in 2020.*

UK shoppers are planning to spend £295.67 on average each, +18% (£44.47) more than 2019.*

More shopping =  more carbon emissions and more negative environmental impact. 

So we've decided to launch new product called ‘No Regrets’.  In 2018, 21% of Brits purchased something on Black Friday/Cyber Monday that they later regretted.*

They spent an estimated average of £83 on each of these items: that’s 1 in 5 people who bought something that they later realised they didn’t want and/or need.*

Our ‘No Regrets’ product costs £83 and will plant 361 trees in Madagascar which will sequester approx 36 tCO2e (tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent) across their lifetime.
Plant trees with Terra Neutra
We think this is a better way to spend £83 and one that you won't regret!

Peatlands are a form of wetlands, bogs and moors, where the year round waterlogged conditions slow the decomposition of dead vegetation to the extent it transforms into  peat soil, with a diverse habitat growing above it. The carbon which is sequestered (absorbed) by the vegetation is then stored within the peatbog for millions of years.

In this post we're going to spend some more time looking at trees and specifically how we (humans) have impacted - and continue to impact - the global tree population (and yes I have a number for this!).
