Ecologi was initially founded by a group of environmentalists in Bristol, UK. They were frustrated that many of us are not able to contribute enough to the colossal climate problem.
It started in early 2019, when Elliot was on his morning commute to work. He was buying a coffee just as he had done thousands of times before, and asked himself: How much climate action could I fund with the money for a coffee?
The answer led to a revelation – that the pocket change that billions of us have would not only be a significant upgrade to our own personal contributions to the crisis, but could also one day account for reducing half of the world’s emissions.
At Ecologi they invest money into a broad range of projects that are able to evidence that they are reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Each month they support a range of carbon reduction projects that are certified at the very highest level by Gold Standard and equivalent. Our funding strategy is guided by their Climate Committee and follow the Project Drawdown framework
It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to plant trees. They are also crucial in preventing ecological collapse.
Ecologi has a range of amazing tree planting partners who are able to responsibly plant millions of trees a month on our community’s behalf.
