Walking saves fuel, improves health and NOW plants trees

trundl is the walking app that has taken charity giving and community partnerships one step further! As you’re reading this blog, you probably know a little bit about us already, or perhaps are learning about our work because trundl encourages you to walk, improves health, saves fuel and NOW plants trees! But, another thing you might not know is that in our last big update, our app was fitted with a CO2 savings slider (that’s a bit of a mouthful, but we’ll explain what we mean!)

Help donate to charity just be walking.

Our trundl app tracks how many steps you take and records how many kilometres you’ve kindly contributed towards our “trundl-ometer”. Well, what’s that? It’s our community walking target, where we can see our collective progress and once we’ve reached our distance goal, a donation is made to a featured charity partner.

Saving CO2 by walking improves health and saves fuel

Whenever you choose to swap the car for taking a walk, regardless of whether that’s a quick trip to the shops or a commute to work, you can now press the “CO2 Saver” button to track your contribution to helping our planet. For every 500kg of CO2 that we collectively save, trundl will help to plant an urban school orchard and hedgerow with The Tree Council. If you’d like to understand how we measure this, you can take a look at our FAQs section

The Tree Council estimates that, during the planting season between November-March, they can partner with 1000 schools, planting around 40,000 trees and hedgerow whips. We wanted to be a part of supporting that work, and we figured our trundling community would like to do the same. Introducing children to the beauty of nature, along with an education of how to look after the world around them, builds a connection that lasts a lifetime. They aim to create a green legacy that the local community can enjoy for generations into the future.

We’re really excited to be walking our first community trundl for The Tree Council between 8-15th September, co-sponsored by company trundlrs CPMG Architects Ltd, a company that is passionate about sustainable building and zero carbon design and a signatory to the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge.
