Make a Personal Pledge to support Care Without Carbon
01 September 2020
By Hayley Carmichael
We have designed a brand new pledge, a personal pledge that allows you to pledge anything you want to, that will make a positive difference on the environment at work or at home.
Pledge or 'dare' your way
As a Trust we are working hard to reduce our impact on the environment through our ongoing Care Without Carbon programme. As part of that we’re asking you to make a pledge to do something differently that will help minimise your carbon footprint.
The range of pledges on offer in our Dare to Care programme are designed to be easy ways to start to become more sustainable; but you’ve told us that for some people these are simply too easy.
So we have designed a brand new pledge, a personal pledge that allows you to pledge anything you want to, that will make a positive difference on the environment at work or at home.
How to make your pledge
To make your personal pledge visit www.carewithoutcarbon.org and select ‘Personal Pledge’ from the range on offer; this allows us to measure how many people want to get involved in their own way.
We also ask that you email firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of what your personal pledge involves and why it matters to you. We’ll keep track of the type of pledges being made to see if there are any trends. It could be that a brand new call to action comes out of this if a lot of people make a personal pledge doing something similar to each other.
Why this is important
These individual actions are important, because they affirm that we can do something, and people are making the choice to do something to create the change they want to see.
As an organisation we’re also making changes, and over the next year we’ll be sharing more with you on how the Trust is doing things differently too.
