Redcoin staff share a common passion and enthusiasm about supporting the local environmental conservation effort. As a result of this we have taken steps to become a Jersey Business Eco Active member and remain driven to take positive steps to reduce our waste and energy footprint.

With beach cleans and similar actions becoming a regular event in the Channel Islands, watch this space for Redcoin to create more environmentally-friendly stories for you to take part in!

 

 

Get Familiar with the Borneo Expedition 2018!

July 18! our very own Intern Sam will be one of 14 Durham Graduates who will be heading to Borneo to volunteer with two fantastic conservation projects. He will be spending 2 weeks with Fuze-Ecoteer with their Sea Turtle project – carrying out beach clean ups, night patrols and snorkel surveys, while running an environmental awareness day for a group of school children.

He will then be travelling to the Matang Wildlife Centre, where we will spend 3 weeks with Project Orangutan, carrying out a variety of tasks such as husbandry, construction work, enrichment and farming.

In addition to being on the ground volunteering, Sam will be running the South Downs Marathon (the day after his 21st Birthday) with the aim of raising a minimum of £3000 to cover travel and to support these great causes.

Redcoin are going to support Sam in ensuring these worthwhile causes receive as much financial support as possible, so have set a goal of raising £5000 through our own donation and kindly asking for any donations from our network of Companies and/or Individuals.

We will be keeping everyone updated on Sam’s Marathon and his time in Borneo on our website. Help us to help these 2 amazing organisations protect these ecosystems and its inhabitants, because without action and education we are at risk of irreparable damage to these special habitats.

Good luck Sam! and from Sam and all of us at Redcoin, thank you for any donations you make. Any donation will really help make a difference.

 

Not only are Redcoin supporting local conservation efforts, we also really believe in the bigger world wide picture, which is why we just love these guys, 4Ocean!

If you are not sure who or what 4Ocean do, we have summarised this great group of people and their cause below.

  • Employ Ocean Cleanup Crews world wide 7 days a week
  • Host Beach Cleanups, Offshore Cleanups and worldwide cleanups
  • Supply 4Ocean Bracelets made from 100% recycled Glass
  • Each 4Ocean purchase will remove one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines.

 

Yes, that’s right, we support local sports too!

We also love getting involved with island life and activities, and we feel that there is no better way of getting involved with the community, than with the fantastic selection of local sports.

At this moment, Redcoin are a sponsor of the Jersey Wado Ryu Karate Club, helping them attain more members to share the fantastic lifestyle changes this club can provide.

These are only just a few of the small steps we have initiated, however we feel it’s important to start small and build up larger, and you can too.

We are happy to share with you some of the starting steps we have taken and will continue to keep up, with helping the environment, using office re-cycling bins, re-use store carrier bags, walk or cycle to the office instead of drive, no longer using disposable coffee cups or other disposable items, opening a window or a door instead of air conditioning and using natural light instead of having the office lights on.
