For every customer who books travel with Big Green Coach we sponsor and protect 5 square foot of Amazonian Rainforest for 10 years.
This has resulted in millions of square foot of Rainforest in Peru being protect by Big Green Coach for the next 10 years since we started the commitment.
The environment means the world to us…
…but we still want to have fun and enjoy watching our beloved football team. This was one of the founding principles of Big Green Coach and why, since our creation in 2009, Big Green Coach has been working hard to make a positive impact on the environment.
Audience travel emissions to live events are the single biggest contributor to the industry’s environmental impact – accounting for a huge 80% of the live event sector’s total emissions. Coach travel is between 4 to 6 times more environmentally friendly than taking a car. Using Big Green Coach is a positive step towards reducing the environmental impact.
Between 2009 and 2012, Big Green Coach has planted hundreds of trees in the UK thanks to our commitment to donate a tree for each full coach we take to an event. This has ensured that our customers are reducing the carbon footprint of festival travel and helping to reduce overall carbon levels in the atmosphere. Big Green Coach team and some lovely volunteers still head out on tree planting days across the UK. A great way to offset what emissions are produced by our coaches. Watch the short video here. Our next Tree Planting day is in early summer 2020. Fingers crossed for better weather!
So remember – when you are travelling on one of our coaches take a look around. You and every other person on that coach are responsible for protecting around 250 square foot of Rainforest – and that is just one coach!
Since we began supporting the rainforest, Big Green Coach has transported well over 500,000 customers on our services. This means that Big Green Coach is protecting over 2.5M square foot of Rainforest! You can see that from space!!!
We are unashamedly proud of the great work we do for the environment but we couldn’t do it without you. So the next time you are planning how to get to a match, check out Big Green Coach and feel good about what YOU have done for YOUR planet.
