2 UK Entrepreneurs Are Leading the Way in Making Payments Greener

We all want to be climate-friendly consumers, right? So, would you like to understand the impact that your spending is having on the environment?

Well now you can! Thanks to a UK start-up that has spent years developing a very clever app which you can sign-up for using the link below. Moreover, your carbon footprint will automatically be off-set by a tree-planting scheme in Scotland.

What is Tred?

The start-up is called Tred. Owners of a Tred card will be given a debit card that is made completely from ocean recycled plastic. The app will then track their spending-based carbon output. The number of people who have registered for one of these cards has doubled in 2021 alone.

How Does It Work?

Co-founders Peter Kirby and Will Smith have developed this amazing app using Crowdfunding. It will deliver detailed reports to card-holders of the carbon emissions that have been generated by their spending. For example, over-indulgence on fashion-led items will be highlighted. Because fashion items have a short-shelf life and may well end up in landfill very quickly.

Spending Will Link to Trees Being Planted in Scotland

The app then connects users reports to a subscription-based service. This service will re-invest money from the user into a certified tree planting scheme in Scotland. The subscription spend will be capped at £20 per month. Typically it is anticipated that this will be somewhere between £10-15 per user.

Those with the greenest footprints will have additional bonus tress planted by the scheme.
