Green up your community with free trees from Octopus Energy

Do you have community space in need of some trees? We're planting 10,000 native saplings across the UK, free, to draw attention to the air pollution that kills 40,000 Brits every year.

For every new tree in the ground, 2 kg of carbon dioxide is saved from polluting the atmosphere.

We're planting 10,000 trees.

That'll save the UK eight tonnes of carbon dioxide per year, create homes for hundreds of insects and critters, and trap harmful particulate matter like nitrogen dioxide.
