Despite all the craziness of 2020, the environment has remained at the forefront of the news. There’s so much we can do to help our poor planet. In this blog, I’ll reveal how I’ve been helping to save the environment through my business and CopyBean Gives Back.
Who’d have thought when I started my freelance writing business, the planet would benefit? Usually, writing involves paper, lots of paper. And paper comes from trees.
You’ll be pleased to hear that I’ve reduced my paper use to improve my businesses’ impact on the environment. The majority of my work is now completed entirely in Google Docs. And the paper I do use is either recycled or FSC certified!
And there are loads of innovative paper alternatives you can choose from. Including elephant poop. I haven’t tried that one yet, but I’ll let you know when I do! Check out the vegan and eco-friendly premium notebooks I use. So there’s no excuse to be using paper that negatively affects our environment anymore.
But my paper use isn’t the only thing I’m doing to help save the environment…
CopyBean Gives Back Launched in October 2020…
If you missed the launch of CopyBean Gives Back in October, read this blog or check out my charity page.
To help the world, I donate 25 trees with every single order I get! That means when we work together, positivity and love is poured back into the world. It’s my way of giving back and doing something (no matter how small) for our suffering planet.
I’m excited to announce that over 1,000 trees have now been planted through CopyBean Gives Back. This is a massive accomplishment.
And I wanted to extend my thanks to all my loyal clients that have worked with me over the past few months to make this happen!
How planting trees makes a difference...
Trees are an essential part of our ecosystem. Trees convert CO2 into oxygen for us to breathe. They provide a habitat for wildlife. Without trees, the delicate balance of our planet is thrown off.
Deforestation is devastating the lives of animals, people and the environment. We’re cutting down trees at a much faster rate than we’re planting them. It’s hard to believe that it’s still happening despite all the warnings scientists are putting out there.
And the other day I watched David Attenborough’s A Life On Our Planet. And it really hit home how important these small donations are.
Not seen it yet? All you need is a Netflix account and 83 minutes. Watch it to see the damage we’ve done to the planet and how you can make small changes in your life to help.
My charity giving plans for 2021…
I’m going to continue to support Eden Reforestation Projects throughout 2021. That means donating 25 trees with every order I get through CopyBean.
We did over 1,000 trees in 2020, so let’s aim for 4,000 trees planted in 2021!
I’ll also be working with a local charity next year. More on that next month. Subscribe to my newsletter (below) or follow me on Twitter to get updates on CopyBean Gives Back!
