Share this news:

The Chelmsford Guide, an app aiming to connect people and businesses across the city, has launched its latest charity initiative to help green the planet.

The creators of the easy-to-use app have announced that for each annual business subscription they receive, they will fund the planting of ten trees to help combat climate change across the globe.

This latest charitable initiative is in partnership with Play It Green, an organisation that plants native trees in Madagascar to offset the carbon emissions of a company and help fight climate change.

Carbon offsetting is widely used by businesses and individuals looking to reduce their carbon footprint. Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and convert it to oxygen through photosynthesis, thereby reducing the effects of global warming. By pairing with Play It Green, The Chelmsford Guide are playing their part in reducing their impact on the planet.

As well as tree planting, part of the profits are donated to the homeless charity Shelter, which is working to rehome people and end the impacts of the housing emergency in the UK.

The Essex-based company’s app aims to be a ‘go-to’ resource for residents of Chelmsford to find information and updates about their local area. The app is free to download and provides users with information about local services, various events occurring across the city, local radio stations, community groups, youth organisations, and volunteering opportunities.

It also provides local businesses with the opportunity to advertise their services to the community: for £87 per year, organisations can list their address, contact information, social media links, photographs, and other marketing content for users of the app to see.

The guide also contains a blog, regularly updated with information about Chelmsford businesses and events for residents to find out about what’s going on in their hometown.

The close-knit company was created by Chelmsford residents who grew up in the area. The company’s headquarters are situated in the heart of the city.

A spokesperson for the company said, “We want to provide you with information and updates that are always at your fingertips and only ever a ‘tap’ away.”
