Supporting the Flow Country
One of the hidden costs of moving so much of our lives online is the energy it takes to keep us connected. I’ve been trying to do my sums, and the quantity of CO2 an online Weaving Space workshop generates is pretty modest in the scheme of things, but I am still conscious that it is a cost.
So in addition to my personal support for environmental charities, Weaving Space is now making its own contribution to the planet. I’m setting aside 1% of all revenue – that’s before any other costs are considered – and donating it to charities which do environmental conservation and restoration work.
In 2022 Weaving Space is supporting the RSPB, which goes far beyond its title claim of protecting birds by centering its work on the habitats as much as the species. They are actively working to restore one of the most important ecosystems in Scotland, which also happens to be exceptionally unusual and beautiful. The Flow Country is a huge blanket bog, which acts as an enormous carbon store as well as a precious habitat for wildlife.
This is an ongoing commitment, so whenever you book a Weaving Space workshop you will be contributing to this priceless work.
