Jersey Kayak Adventures Offsets its Carbon Footprint

Publish date: 25 Feb 2022

Jersey Kayak Adventures offsets its carbon footprint

As part of their commitment to the environment, Jersey Kayak Adventures are constantly working to reduce their carbon footprint. They have already reduced their footprint by almost 50% by buying an electric van, switching from gas to electric heating and doing more recycling. Plus, they regularly undertake beach cleans on their kayak tours.

They buy from businesses such as Peak UK who are extending their excellent range of paddle-sport clothing by using recycled products and reduced packaging. Werner Paddles recycle materials used in the manufacture of their paddles. Old kit is often stripped down so parts can be reused for repairs and other uses.

To encourage customers attending kayak tours to use greener alternatives, they offer an eco-discount to those who arrive by bus, bicycle, or foot.

Carbon Offsets for a small business

As they continue to reduce emissions further, they wanted to offset the remainder to make Jersey Kayak Adventures carbon neutral. For a small business, carbon offset schemes can seem quite complicated, and it soon became apparent that carbon offsetting (when done well) is so much more than just planting trees.

Rewild Carbon

In 2021 they heard that Jersey-based Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust had created Rewild Carbon, a project with a novel approach. Knowing that the world-famous conservation organisation founded by Gerald Durrell ran Rewild Carbon gave them the confidence that this was a scheme worth considering.

Rewild Carbon invests directly in reforestation of the Atlantic rainforest in Brazil and supports endangered species such as the black lion tamarin. They can see where their money goes, and more importantly, they know that the project has been designed to benefit local communities.

By investing in Rewild Carbon, Jersey Kayak Adventures, know that they are doing so much more than just offsetting their carbon footprint. They are helping restore one of the most biodiverse and threatened habitats on the planet.
