Seagrass Grow

Growing seagrass is one of the best ways to tackle climate change - it takes carbon from the atmosphere up to 35 times faster than tropical rainforests.


Hedgehogs and Native Habitats

Hedgehogs are one of the most vulnerable wild mammals in the UK. Delivered by Queen guitarist Brian May's Save Me Trust, this project supports habitats, educates children and conducts research into future protection initiatives.

Clean Tech

E-waste Collection & Recycling

Working with local people & partners to collect end-of-life scrap phones in African countries lacking recycling infrastructure. Reusing precious materials and creating local jobs.

New Horizons

Biomass Sequestration

This novel approach uses the best process that exists for removing carbon from the air – trees; and enhances it. The biomass is returned underground – reverse mining!

Clean Tech

Solar Cookers

Refugees are provided with CooKits - these solar cookers have a positive impact on the safety and health of people who live in very difficult circumstances.


Wildlife Rescue

There’s not an NHS for our precious wildlife, but the UK has an incredible network of wildlife hospitals. This project supports the work of Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue in the south of England.
