Let’s Go Punting, an Eco-Friendly Company

Have you heard of Facebook’s 10-year Challenge? The latest social media craze…. share a photo of yourself 10 years ago and now on Social Media. However, we’ve recently seen a post that instantly caught our attention and which is probably the only 10-year challange photo everyone should see:

“The only 10-year challange we should care about” – Mesut Özil on Twitter

Human activity has played a central role in the changes represented on the two photos above. According to NASA, there is a ‘blanket around the Earth’, largely caused by us and the industrial activities that our modern civilisation depends on. Carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide have caused much of the observed increase in Earth’s temperatures over the past 50 years. 

At ‘Let’s Go Punting’ we have always tried to run our business without causing damage to the environment and consider our company eco-friendly. Here are some of Let’s Go Punting’s Green credentials…

1. Punting is great

Luckily, we run a business where the boats are 100% eco-friendly. No fuel, diesel or other poisonous materials needed; only a pole and a Chauffeur! 

2. Leave the cars behind

Less cars mean less carbon dioxide, more fresh air and better health for us. At ‘Let’s Go Punting’ we usually cycle to work;  in cases of heavy rain, we take the bus.

3. Recycle

Recycling is the easiest way to do something for a good cause; it’s not a hard job and it’s not time consuming. Recycle today for a better tomorrow!

4. Use Bulb Renewable Energy

Bulb entered the UK energy market in 2015, with the specific aim to offer affordable green energy via their 100% renewable electricity and 10% renewable biomethane gas tariff. At Let’s Go Punting we are proud do be Bulb customers  and you can be one too! But are so keen to see everyone go green they are offering £50 to switch, use this link: bulb.co.uk/refer/caroliner1214

5. Use Solar Power

Solar Panels absorb sunlight as a source of energy to generate electricity. The sun is an infinite source of power which is free to use everyday! We have recently installed solar powered lighting at our departure point.

 

And as for that 10 year challenge, here is a great post about the bosses:
