District 1070 Forest

District 1070 are encouraging Rotarians in the District to contribute to Ecologi , a company set up to enable individuals to help combat climate change.  They offer a range of ways of offsetting carbon use ranging from tree planting to preventing deforestation by the use of sustainable ovens rather than wood or charcoal for cooking.  A contribution of £37pa is sufficient to offset the average individual carbon footprint.  The members of individual clubs can create their own “forest” and these can be accumulated as a District “forest”.  More details here .
