Octopus Energy autumn tree planting projects

The green energy company is helping schools to plant more trees to improve their local air quality

Octopus Energy, which offers a 100 per cent green electricity tariff among its energy offers, has partnered with the United Nations' BreatheLife campaign to improve air quality for people around the world. It will be planting 1,000 native trees in the UK over October and November

Octopus Energy, which has partnered with the United Nations' BreatheLife campaign, has announced it's planting 1,000 native broadleaf trees around the UK over the next two months. 
 
It's working with schools initially and says these projects are underway:
 
A primary school in Long Whatton is planting 70 trees as part of its forest school programme.
A school in Hayes is planting a 40m long hedgerow of up to 100 trees that will protect its boundary while improving air quality.
A school in Oakham is creating a small wooded area next to its pond to provide learning opportunities around insect life and biodiversity.
 
If you know a school or community group space that could benefit from more greenery, they can get in touch with Octopus: trees@octopus.energy
