At Rhug sustainability is considered in every aspect of the business from the organic farm to the takeaway packaging. Last year the carbon footprint of Rhug Organic Farm was measured and as a result of work already done, the Estate is very fortunate to be in a carbon negative position.
Lord Newborough now wants customers to benefit from the surplus carbon that Rhug Estate has produced. Two hundred and fifty tonnes of the surplus carbon have been set aside to offset the journey of every customer for the next 12 months. For those living and staying within five miles of the Estate their entire journey will be completely carbon neutral.
Lord Newborough has enlisted the services of Wrexham company, Bloci, to independently track the amount of carbon used, per vehicle, using blockchain technology.
