As a business owner, I believe I have a responsibility to operate in a way that is ethical
There are some aspects of first aid training that are not beneficial to our environment, such as the need to use single use plastic lungs in CPR manikins. This is a necessity to keep learners safe, and currently there isn’t a biodegradable option available, hopefully this is something that will change in time. However, in the meantime I will always look for ways to do the right thing and try to make a difference where I can. Which is why I’m delighted to announce we’ve joined JUST ONE Tree.
Climate change affects us all. For every learner that completes a regulated first aid qualification with First Class First Aid LTD, we plant a tree with JUST ONE Tree helping to restore vital habitat for the world’s wildlife.
JUST ONE Tree is a non-profit initiative removing CO2 from the atmosphere and reversing biodiversity loss through global reforestation. They plant trees in areas severely affected by deforestation to maximise the effect on reducing global warming. In the process they help to provide agricultural education and sustainable incomes to local communities. But they don’t stop there. JUST ONE Tree concentrates on restoring the entire ecosystem by planting on land and in the oceans, and they also focus on helping to shape the next generation of planet-conscious thinkers by bringing environmental education into the classrooms with lesson plans and JUST ONE Tree Day.
