If you want to pay back for the carbon emissions you are creating in your personal life, and do not want to subscribe to or are unable to subscribe to formal carbon offsetting projects, we encourage you to contribute to the projects that we support.

The average carbon price in the UK in December 2022 was £69 per tonne - more details here: https://tinyurl.com/2hztn2es
You could use the carbon calculator & price above to assess how much you would like to contribute. As we are not a formal scheme, there are average and informal calculations to enable people to take informal action to make good some of the emissions emitted as part of modern life.
In 2023 the projects that we will be supporting are:
- Energy champions and Fuel poverty outreach
- The Sussex Kelp Regeneration Project
