About Ecologi and Elliot
Founded in 2019, it is backed by nearly 24,000 members of the public and more than 8,000 businesses. In August 2021, Ecologi planted three million trees in a single month, nine times as many as they planted just 12 months earlier. They’re committed to planting 1 billion trees by 2030, as well as funding the breadth of the world’s best climate crisis solutions.
Ecologi works with groups like US-based Eden Reforestation Project, paying local people to plant trees in their own area. Ecologi began when Elliot and his wife and co-founder, Lucy, were looking at their own carbon footprints back in 2019. “At the time I was commuting to London and buying fancy coffees and I started to wonder what good the equivalent of one coffee could do if I spent that money on climate action instead,” Elliot shared. “When I looked into it I was blown away that I could offset my entire carbon footprint for about £5 a month, plus plant about 140 trees a year. That idea just got stuck in my head.”
With COP26 happening, November feels like a crucial month for the future of our planet. At Wow, we wanted to do our bit to help, which is why we’ve partnered with Ecologi to help businesses to create their own Climate Positive Workforces.
