Carbon Footprint Reduction

At The Christmas Decorators, we recognize the urgent need to address climate change and reduce our carbon footprint to mitigate the impacts of global warming. Not only do we offset our own annual emissions but we are now proud to offer all of our clients the opportunity to have their decorations, installation and electrical consumption offset for a small additional fee.  If you decide to offset your carbon impact, we will offer you the opportunity to invest in local tree planting or wind turbine and solar farm investment.  We will calculate your decorations emissions and issue you with a certificate, proving you net zero installation.
