Last month we told you about Magenta’s Ecobricks as part of our Magenta Goes Green initiative for 2020.

This month we’re asking you to vote to nominate a charity for the year.

As you know, Magenta is keen to support charity fundraising, having raised thousands over the last 3 years for the Alzheimer’s Society and undertaking crafty projects to make things for Breast Cancer Care. We’ll probably continue to do these sorts of things throughout the year, but we’re also making a commitment to contribute to a green charity.

For everything saved in our financial year on postage and print, we will donate 100% to the charity in 2020-21.

We’ve shortlisted 3 charities and given you a little information about each below.

We’d like you to vote using this survey link and nominate your preferred charity. The charity with the most nominations we will select as the charity to benefit from our go green initiative around paper and postage saving in 2020!

The Size of Wales

‘An area the size of Wales’ is frequently used to measure the rate of forest destruction. The charity, Size of Wales, is attempting to turn that negative use of the country’s size on its head.

Size of Wales encourages the people of Wales to help tackle climate change by taking simple positive actions. They work with schools and businesses to raise funds for forests and raise awareness of the importance of forests in tackling climate change.

Since launching in 2010 Size of Wales has supported 2.4 million hectares of tropical forest and supported over 43,000 people from forest communities.

Friends of the Earth

Friends of the Earth Cymru is committed to protecting the environment and promoting a sustainable future for Wales.

It’s part of the most influential environmental campaigning organization in the UK and part of the most extensive environmental network in the world, with over 75 national organizations across five continents.

They support a unique network of local groups who campaign in communities across Wales.

Sustainable Wales

Sustainable Wales is a grassroots charity focused on enabling sustainable lifestyles in Wales.

Their volunteer-run activities include: SUSSED an ethical retail cooperative, a pop-up fairtrade café, cultural events in The Green Room and establishing Bridgend local (renewable) energy group.

Sustainable Wales works with people from all walks of life, to make positive change and nurture optimistic practical solutions, whilst supporting the local economy as we face the reality of global climate crisis.
