This festive season we’re doing something special here at Design & Data. Sending gifts in winter is a time-honoured tradition but producing and posting seasonal gifts has a heavy carbon footprint. We believe that Christmas doesn’t have to cost the Earth.
To play our part in combating climate change, this year we won’t be sending out Christmas cards or gifts, which increase our carbon footprint. Instead we’re going to donate the money we saved on gifts and postage to a charity that is dear to our employees.
We will be donating 2500 Euro to Ocean Clean Up this Christmas. This pioneering charity is working to clean plastics out of the world’s oceans and rivers, using cutting-edge technology with the aim of removing 90% of ocean plastic by 2040.
We think the best gift this Christmas is a cleaner planet and we hope you agree!
