British railways have decided to support the environment: for each ticket purchased, they will plant one tree.

British railways have decided

Everything works very simply. From £ 1.5 commission when booking one ticket 50 pence will go to planting a seedling. The action is supported by the Royal Forest Society and the Royal Scottish Forest Society.

This was reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply with reference to the Gudok.

The project was launched in late November and during this time passengers booked about 25 thousand trips. By 2025, the authors of the idea want to plant 10 million trees – and this figure does not seem unrealistic.

For example, in 2019, the passenger traffic on British railways was 1.8 billion people. If the project sells at least 5% as booking, it will be possible to plant 90 million trees in just one year.
