Honda offers help for environmental angels

HONDA has launched a new scheme aimed at drivers who feel guilty about their car’s emissions.

From the beginning of September, new Honda car owners could receive a ‘tree-tube’ gift from participating dealers.

Each tube contains three months’ worth of carbon-neutral driving. The gift supports projects that absorb, neutralise and offset the carbon dioxide emissions produced by car driving.

After the three-month period, drivers will be invited to buy into the scheme at £8 a quarter.

Sue Welland, founder of Future Forests, said: ‘We are able to ‘neutralise’ emissions by funding projects around the world – like forestry and climate friendly energy.

‘The projects, by reducing, eliminating or absorbing carbon dioxide, will compensate for one tonne of CO2 – the amount produced on average from driving for three months.’

Future Forests has planted 4,000 trees on behalf of Honda at forests throughout the UK.
