What if I told you that you could do this buy purchasing a climate neutral t-shirt?
London based creative company, 20something have recently launched another tee which offsets the carbon emissions of the average European individual. The idea behind another tee is to popularise offsetting our carbon emissions and make it more accessible to everyday person.
How do they do it?
The average individual in the EU creates approximately 7000kg of carbon emissions per year. For every £39 t-shirt that's purchased, the company plants 24 mangroves. Mangroves 5 times more effective at sequestering carbon than tropical land forests and are able to able to absorb around 308kg of carbon throughout its lifetime. By planting these mangroves, it will offset the carbon created by the average person in the EU for a year.
Alternatively, if you are able to do so, you can pay £3600 which plants 4600 mangroves and will offset your carbon emissions for life. However, the team at anothertee are aware this isn't accessible for all hence why they offer the ability to offset yearly instead.Fair Wear Foundation code of labour practices which suggests that the factories are also ethical.
