As a contribution to Climate Change Week MAT has recently planted a carbon capture bottle tree and you can help it grow!
Make a pledge to save carbon over the next 12 months in any of the simple ways shown below. For each pledge we receive a “Leaf” will be added to the bottle tree. A MAT event held earlier this year has already produced pledges to save over 3 tonnes of carbon.
You can see the carbon capture bottle tree on Shepherds Lane, Melbourne.
