Let's plant some trees!

tree animation

Spurred on by some eye-opening documentaries like: Chasing Ice, Chasing Coral, and A Plastic Ocean (all of which I cannot recommend highly enough) I've been looking at ways I can change my daily habits to help reduce the impact I have on the world.

In an effort to go one step further and incorporate those changes into my freelance work, I've decided to start planting trees for every new client!

Now, when I say planting trees, that's not strictly true as I won't be doing the actual planting. Instead, what I will be doing, is donating a small percentage of every project to the World Land Trust who help restore lost forests and reconnect forest habitats across the globe.

I'm still working out the specifics of it all, my current plan is to make a single tree donation for smaller projects and then put aside around 1-3% on projects over £1000 which would, at a minimum, help to buy/protect a 1/4 acre. The bigger the project, the more trees we plant!

Rewilding the planet with animation and motion design

We've only got one planet, and right now it needs all the help it can get. Climate change and biodiversity loss are massive challenges that we need to tackle head on.

That's why, for every animation project over £1000 a donation of 2% of the total budget will be made to the World Land Trust, on your behalf.

The money will go towards WLT's "buy an acre" programme; buying up and protecting vital habitats around the world, and helping fight against climate change.

Any projects under £1000 will have a tree planted on your behalf.

Acres saved so far:

Thanks to my wonderful clients and the animations we've produced, enough money has been donated to save around 12 Acres of vital habitats around the world.
