Running for carbon redemption

By: chloe hampson

19th January 2016 - 31st May 2016 in Barcelona|

I'm running the marathon this March and instead of asking you lovely people to give me money, i'm asking you to make a change (big or small) in your daily routines that means that we are collectively not gobbling up quite so many of the earth's resources.

Each pledge you make (e.g cycle to work, or stop eating meat for 1 week) will save a certain amount of CO2.....the more CO2 saved, the better for the environment. Simples!

But i'm going to be honest with you, i'm also hoping that you're pledges will help appease some of my flying guilt. I'm pretty bad when it comes to holidays, but nothing quite beats the total mare of last year - poor planning meant that I took EIGHT flights to get to South Africa (and back) as opposed to two. And it won't take a genius to work out that i've done it again.....deciding to run the marathon in Barcelona instead of the much more accessible London.

I've added up how much CO2 all these flights have used and am aiming to get enough pledges from friends, family and colleagues that will cancel them out and help me atone for my holiday-making sins. So please, get pledging.....lots of small actions can make a big difference.

**** READ THIS - It's not very clear, but there's loads more pledge options to choose from on top of the 5 'promoted' ones at the bottom of this page. If you click the 'pledge' link at the top of the page it should take you through to the rest of the categories. *****

THANK YOU!
