Celebrating Carbon Free Day With Mitchells

Posted by in Corporate Social Responsibility on 2nd July 2024

Mark your calendars because Mitchells second official Carbon Free Day is happening on Monday 22nd July 2024! But don’t worry, as a Mitchells customer you don’t have to do a single thing. We’ll do all the hard work for you.

In April our Carbon Co-Op members offset 21,472KG of CO2. We offset the carbon emissions on their behalf through Ecologi renewable programs and over 2,000 trees have been planted in their names.

What is Mitchells Carbon Free Day?

To celebrate the amazing carbon offsetting work we have done so far both within Mitchells and for our customers, we decided to celebrate and help our customers too.

On Monday 22nd July, we will offset all of the CO2 produced by your deliveries and invest in renewable projects in your name.

What’s the catch? 

Sounds too good to be true? We’re passionate about creating a more sustainable future and helping our customers.

We’re taking care of the CO2 footprint from your deliveries.   We’ll be offsetting it for you, and you’ll be able to see the positive impact visually on your own Ecologi page. 

It’s a win-win for the planet and for you!

I don’t have an Ecologi page

It’s super easy and free to sign up and create an Ecologi page in your company name, where we will upload the impact of your deliveries.

You don’t have to do anything else, except enjoy showing your customers and team the difference you have made. 

To create your Ecologi page please contact sales@mitchellsofmansfield.com and we will send you a link to create your free page. Once set up send us a link to your page and we will associate it with our Carbon Co-Op page. 


What if I’m already a Carbon Co-Op member?

Then you can sit back and relax as Mitchells will do the heavy lifting and your deliveries will automatically be offset by us on the day.

What if I’m not a Mitchells customer?

You’re welcome to open an account with us, and whatever deliveries you send on the 22nd July with us will be carbon compensated. 

Just contact our sales department at sales@mitchellsofmansfield.com or call us on 01623 555707.

What if I want to continue to offset all our deliveries?

Once you’ve seen the impact you can make daily through our Carbon Co-Op, there’s a high chance you’ll want to carry on.

We can help you understand the costs of offsetting your deliveries through our Carbon Co-Op by looking at your previous delivery profile. Just get in touch with our sales team at sales@mitchellsofmansfield.com or call us on 01623 555707 to carry on offsetting your carbon footprint.

Am I getting tied into something?

You can use our Carbon Free Day for just the day or you can decide to join us regularly by offsetting your carbon footprint through our Carbon Co-Op. There’s no catch.

Our main aim is to create a sustainable future in our industry. We want to help as many businesses as possible to do the same. Our Carbon Free Day will be an annual event and if you created a page with us the year prior we will continue to add the free benefits to your page every year on Carbon Free Day.

What other benefits are there to joining?

Besides helping the planet and creating a more sustainable future for a younger generation, there are many other benefits to joining our Carbon Free Day.

Getting involved with a carbon reduction plan can offer numerous benefits to your company such as enhancing your business’s reputation. Consumers and stakeholders increasingly prefer to support businesses that prioritise environmental responsibility, which can improve brand loyalty and attract new customers. Participating in a more sustainable practice can open up opportunities to access new markets, partnerships, and business opportunities that prioritise sustainability.

By joining the fight through carbon reduction initiatives, you can ensure smooth sailing with current and future environmental regulations, avoiding potential fines. Plus, reducing your carbon footprint often leads to lower energy consumption, saving you money in the long run. 

Engaging your team in carbon reduction efforts can often boost morale and foster a sense of pride and purpose among your workforce. Employees are motivated by opportunities to contribute to meaningful initiatives that benefit the environment and society.
