Mortgage and loans brokerage More Finance has launched an initiative to buy a tree for every new mortgage and secured loan that completes in June and August.
David Brackley, managing director of More Finance, says: “We wanted to create an initiative that would give something back to the environment.
“However, we didn’t just want to pay this lip service and researched a number of projects that would benefit from our donation.
“We decided on trees because they are such a valuable resource and there is an increasing problem with sustainability of wood supplies.
“We decided to support The Carbon Neutral Company as they have a number of sustainable forest projects in Germany and also closer to home in Devon.
“At the end of the campaign we will send them the donation and announce the number of trees that have been purchased through our ‘More Trees for Mortgages’ initiative.”
