Green initiative

Green initiativeThe equivalent of a small woodland has been planted by central England park owners, in order to balance the books on carbon produced by their cars when attending regular branch meetings. More than 400 saplings are now flourishing on parks belonging to members of the Heart of England branch of the British Holiday and Home Parks Association (BHHPA).

With each tree calculated to have a carbon offset value of around 255 miles, members are able to attend branch get-togethers knowing that their journeys have actually benefitted the environment.

Inspiration for the scheme came last year, after green issues were on the agenda at one of the branch’s quarterly meetings, with branch chairman Denis Lloyd Jones explaining, ‘Many parks in the branch already hold the David Bellamy Conservation Award, and we all have taken measures to help protect the natural world in one way or another.’
