Gigatonne Challenge (Reduce a tonne of carbon)

We are a small team of seven, based in the UK who have committed to taking part in a challenge to reduce one tonne of CO2 emissions in just two weeks. Our project is specifically focussed on diverting food waste to composting schemes and have calculated that we need to ensure 400kg of waste goes to compost instead of landfill.

We are in contact with various businesses, from shops to restaurants, who are keen to compost their waste but currently don't have a system in place. We are in contact with some really cool projects, for example, community gardening schemes which are keen to take this waste and make good use of it!

However, we have one missing piece. Transportation. After some research, we found a lovely ethical and environmentally friendly company called Pedalme, a carbon-neutral transport service for both cargo and passengers. We are looking to raise some money to cover the cost of this service.

Please donate any money you can to reduce food waste going to landfill and help community garden projects flourish...quite literally!

Any support is hugely welcomed. We are a team of conscious individuals, striving to connect environmentalists and inspire positive engagement with the climate crisis. We would love to continue to make contact with businesses and individuals who are looking to compost their food waste.  If you, or anyone you know, is interested in supporting the logistics of this challenge, please get in touch,!
