Charities we support

Creativepool gives 10% of all profits made by the Annual split evenly across these 3 charities.

All 3 cover different parts of the planet, all with the goal of planting more trees to offset the effects of climate change and to protect plant diversity. It is something that we feel very strongly about the need to support.

All paper used in the printed Annual is made, where possible, from recycled paper. Our aim to ensure that our carbon footprint from creating the Annual is offset by a minimum factor of 5. Meaning that we have offset 5 times as much carbon as we have created in it's production.
