Planting a tree as part of the pledge made by the two care homes.

Amberley Hall and Goodwins Hall care homes in King’s Lynn have introduced new tree-planting schemes.

The residential homes have partnered with Ecologi, an organisation which helps businesses become carbon neutral, and have pledged to plant five trees for each new resident who moves in.

The trees will be planted across the UK and in Madagascar, Nicaragua, Mozambique and many other destinations around the world.

Athena Care Homes owns both care homes and Mala Agarwal, the company’s managing director, said: “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.”

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.” 

The company said it has been focused on sustainability implementing energy efficiency measures, microgeneration from solar panels, composting, growing initiatives and more.
