Leading plant charity gets greener!
Two of Wiltshire’s most sustainable organisations join together
The UK’s leading wild plant conservation charity has got even greener after announcing its new partnership with Chippenham-based renewable electricity company Good Energy.
Plantlife, based in Salisbury, has joined forces with the 100% renewable electricity supplier as part of the charity’s efforts to inspire its members and supporters to switch to a greener energy tariff for their home and business.
Juliet Davenport OBE, CEO and founder of Good Energy said: “Reducing carbon emissions is a vital part of conserving some of our most precious wild flowers, fungi, plants and their habitats here in the UK.
“Renewables and nature work hand in hand – and with the recent agreement in Paris, we think Plantlife supporters will want to play their part in the global shift towards a cleaner future for our planet.”
Amy Sturman, Membership Development Manager at Plantlife said: “Plantlife is excited to be working with Good Energy and developing a partnership which aims to raise awareness of the importance of wild plants.
“For the last 25 years Plantlife has had a primary focus – to conserve and celebrate wild plants, flowers and fungi. Wild flowers and plants play a fundamental role for wildlife and are essential to life – they clean our air and water, provide food and shelter for our insects, birds and animals and are critical in the fight against climate change. Plantlife is very grateful to Good Energy for their support.”
Every supporter who switches to Good Energy quoting ‘Plantlife’ will receive a year’s free membership to Plantlife and Good Energy will also donate £50 to support the charity’s vital work in conserving the nation's meadows and wildflowers.
