King's Lynn Amberley Hall and Goodwins Hall care homes' sustainability tree plant pledge
Two Lynn care homes have introduced new tree planting schemes as part of a sustainability drive.
Parent company Athena Care Homes has pledged to plant five trees for each new resident who moves into Amberley Hall and Goodwins Hall.
Athena has been focused on sustainability for some time, having implemented energy efficiency measures, microgeneration from solar panels, composting, growing initiatives and much more, but wanted to take this further.
Managing director, Mala Agarwal, explained: “We want our company to have a lasting legacy, not just through great quality of care and the improved quality of life we can offer our residents, but by also reducing our impact on our planet.
“That’s why we’ve partnered with Ecologi to plant five trees for every resident who moves into our homes.”
The Athena Forest will be planted across the UK, Madagascar, Nicaragua, Mozambique and many other destinations around the world.
Marketing manager, James Eley, added: “We want to bring our company visions and values to life and making this long-term commitment shows we’re leading by example, thinking differently and helping to create a legacy for our company and residents.”
