The buzzmove CO2 pledge
Moving home is inevitable. However, the negative impact on the environment from the C02 released isn’t.
Instead of just accepting this, we are leading the way for carbon-neutral removals.
Our pledge to improve the eco-friendliness of an industry that has typically neglected its carbon footprint. We want to build a cleaner and more sustainable future.

How we’re doing it
Please get involved
Over a year, our removal companies emit a total of 360 tonnes of CO2 into the air.Guess how many trees you need to offset that?
For every £6 you donate Trees for Life will plant a tree in the buzzmove grove. Already over 100 trees have been donated but there’s still room for much more. Plant your first tree here.
By donating you’ll be featured below as an eco-friendly removal company. You’ll also receive the buzzmove Eco Badge to display on your site.

Hallam Removals and Storage Limited
Hallam Removals and Storage Limited have donated 1 tree to Treesforlife. 1 tree can offset 1 tonne of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old (P.S. a 40 year old tree is the equivalent of a new born in human terms) Imagine how many tonnes it would have offsetted in 2118!
