We’re thrilled that Britain’s greenest energy company and supporter of the National Forest, Ecotricity, are sponsoring the first Timber Festival.
Ecotricity has joined forces with the National Forest Company to support the development of England’s first large-scale forest to be created in a thousand years.
Together with a donation of up to £60 for every new customer who switches their energy supply to Ecotricity and a commitment to exploring the possibility of renewable energy in the Forest, Ecotricity will be supporting the inaugural Timber festival through marketing and on-site activities.
The National Forest has been transforming 200 square miles of central England for over 25 years, demonstrating the power of trees to transform lives, the landscape and the economy.
John Everitt, chief executive, National Forest Company, said: “We’re delighted to partner with Ecotricity, a company that shares our values to pioneer positive environmental change.
“People making the choice to sign up with Ecotricity will not only be promoting green energy, but also supporting the boldest environmental regeneration project in the country by planting trees to transform lives, the landscape and the economy.”
Dale Vince, founder of Ecotricity, said: “The National Forest is a great ambition, and part of the restoration of Britain’s natural habitats that we desperately need to do, having taken so much land from wildlife and seen the massive decline of species in the last 50 years. It’s exciting to be a part of this.”
