Rose Calendars recently joined forces with the Woodland Trust to create new native woodland as part of the Premier Paper Carbon Capture programme.

Marketing manager Elizabeth Rose teamed up with the Outdoor Guide and CBBC presenter Gemma Hunt to brave the cold and plant saplings with the Woodland Trust, at the Young People’s Forest in Mead, Derbyshire. She was joined by colleagues from Premier Paper as well as other guests from around the UK who travelled to take part in the day and help with this amazing project.

The target for the day was to plant at least 3000 trees that are native to the area including holly, silver birch, alder and oak. By the end of the day an incredible total of 4000 indigenous saplings were planted, despite a few cold hands.

Elizabeth said, ‘It was great to get outdoors and give something back, through this initiative which we joined in August 2021. So far this year we have captured enough carbon from the paper we purchased to plant 2620 square metres of woodland, which is equivalent to ten tennis courts. We hope to continue in a similar fashion into 2022 and demonstrate the value in using paper with Carbon Capture credentials.’

To date the Carbon Capture programme has raised in excess of £1.3 million for the Woodland Trust, planting over 330,000 trees so far and captured over 80,000 tonnes of CO₂.

Rose Calendars has impressive green credentials across its business. All the paper used in the production of the company’s range of promotional calendars is sustainably sourced and it now uses paper which has been purchased through the Carbon Capture programme. All the board mailers and cartons are made from recycled material. Rose offers carbon neutral deliveries through DPD and even uses solar power in the printing of calendars. Vegetable based inks are used and there is a zero waste to landfill policy.
