I (Charlie) started Urthly, with the vision to disrupt 'Business as Usual' in London.
The aim is to create a Green Circular Economy within London, therefore reducing our Carbon Footprint and showing the World how it can be done with small, mindful choices.
Urthly can calculate your current operating Carbon Footprint, we will work with you and your team to improve your footprint. We believe in honest Carbon Accounting as a tool to motivate others to reduce their Carbon Footprint. Nothing beats a bit of positive social pressure.
Together we will work through every stage of your business and see if we can find ways to improve the sustainability without costing you more money.
Urthly can assist you with every aspect of your business from supplies, practices and green innovation.
If we do not change the way that we do business now, we will run out of time before its too late. The good news is we still have time and your customers want sustainable options! And your employees want to work for a sustainable company.
A report carried out in 2015 by Nielsen which polled 30,000 consumers in 60 countries around the world had an overwhelming conclusion that 66% would pay more for sustainable products, I'm sure those 66% of customers would feel the same about services to.
Of those 66% of consumers 73% were millennials, bearing that in mind by 2025, 75% of the workforce will be millennials. If sustainability is a strong decision factor this will also be important for where they choose to work.
We need to change our practices and offer our customers sustainable choices, because that is what they want and what is necessary to fight Climate Change.
Urthly has committed to donate 10% of the annual profits to Gold Standard Projects that are focusing on re-wilding, re-foresting, and developing innovative green energy projects.
An additional 10% of the annual profits will go towards supporting those affected by climate crisis. We have already in 2020 donated towards NSW RFS & Brigades and WIRES Australian wildlife rescue in response to the devastating, and heart breaking Bushfires.
A further 5% of the annual profits to Sea Plastic reduction organisations and charities.
This is FuggleWhump the head honcho of Urthly, his main role is providing moral support, cuddles and distractions.
Fuggle cares about the environment because he loves going for adventures in and out of London and enjoys an environment that isn't too hot to do this in.
Fuggle is a big advocate for mental wellbeing and shares love wherever he goes, often bringing smiles to commuters in the morning, and if you're lucky a leg hug. He is quite sneaky however so watch out as he's very good at stealing the last available seat on the tube.
Fuggles favourite pastime other than cuddles and meeting new people is manic frisbee chasing, to FuggleWhump frisbee is god.
