Tonnes

CO2 Removed

Alexandra offsets their entire carbon footprint of 22.1 tonnes per year through their Get Mads subscription.

Plastic Bottles

Prevented from entering the ocean

Alexandra offsets 4200 plastic bottles (84 kg) per year.

All plastic is offset through the Plastic Bank who not only prevent plastic from entering our oceans, but also provide new sources of income for members in developing nations. Collected plastic is exchanged for digital currency and logged in the blockchain. This creates a transparent and traceable supply chain. Read more about that here.

What Does This Mean?
We know that all of this can be confusing!
Here are some examples of what Alexandra's 1050 plastic bottles and 5.5 tonnes of CO2 equal:
Roundtrip flights from London to Los Angeles worth of carbon saved.
On average one round trip creates 932.7 kg of emissions. This calculation varies by airline. Source
?
Straws worth of plastic removed from landfill.
The average straw weighs 0.5g.
Source
?
Miles driven in the average car.
The average person drives 13,476 miles per year, emitting 5.43 tonnes of CO2.
Source
?
Disposable coffee cups worth of plastic saved from landfill.
The average plastic content of a coffee cup is 4g.
Source
?
Years worth of carbon savings from plant-based living.
Living plant-based saves approximately 0.8 tonnes of CO2 per year, which is four times more than is saved through comprehensive recycling.

?
Bathtubs of plastic bottles rescued from the sea.
The largest size Victoria Plumb bathtub has a capacity of 260L, therefore it would take approximately 520 x 500ml bottles to fill one.

Projects That Fight The Madness

Every month Alexandra supports certified projects that not only prevent or sequester carbon and plastic but also have a long term positive social impact.

UN Project 9933: Improved Cook Stoves in Malawi

Helping rural families switch to safer, cleaner, more efficient cookstoves.
About

The World Health Organisation estimates that over 3 billion people in low and middle-income countries rely on energy inefficient solid fuels such as wood, charcoal, coal, animal dung, and crop wastes. This project helps transition rural households in Malawi to energy efficient cookstoves reducing carbon emissions, preventing deforestation and helping local communities.

The Plastic Bank: Turning Plastic Pollution into Empowering Income

Fighting ocean pollution by ethically recovering & recycling ocean-bound plastics.
About

Plastic pollution is one of the greatest threats to our oceans and marine life. The Plastic Bank fights ocean pollution by working in developing nations to ethically recover plastic waste, while simultaneously creating positive economic opportunity for those who helped collect it.

UN Project 5016: Reforestation in Rural India

Supporting reforestation projects and economic opportunity in rural East India.
About

This project empowers small-scale farmers in rural India by providing the financial and economic resources to transform wasteland into fertile forestland. This has the dual benefit of sequestering carbon while providing new economic opportunity for rural communities.

UN Project 6848: Hydroelectric Energy in Chile

Transitioning Chile to Renewable Energy with Hydroelectric Power.
About

Today, the energy sector is one of the most significant contributors to climate change, and accounts for nearly 60% of total greenhouse gas emissions. This project provides a renewable source of energy for the main supply grid in Chile, helping to transition the nation to clean, renewable energy.
