December, 3, 2018
Colleagues from Horwich Farrelly’s Manchester office have been ‘digging deep’ as they lend their support to an initiative seeking to plant a tree for every man, woman and child in Greater Manchester.
Around 750 trees were recently planted at the site in Clifton, Salford by 40 volunteers from local organisations including Horwich Farrelly, the BBC and Carbon Creative. Local schoolchildren also gave their support to the planting which took place during National Tree Week, the UK’s largest annual tree celebration.
The project was organised by City of Trees Manchester, a charity which is aiming to plant 3m trees across the county. More than 332,000 trees have been planted to date thanks to the work of the charity and support from volunteers.
A number of those attending from Horwich Farrelly were ‘Green Champions’: colleagues challenged with improving sustainability across the firm.
Earlier this year the firm announced it would be phasing out single-use plastics by 2020 and set a unique competition for employees to reduce their own plastic consumption in return for a chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Central America.
