SKOOT, the only carbon negative green navigation app for drivers launches crowdfunding campaign to help drive its growth and offset vehicle carbon as lockdown eases

image001A new crowd-funding campaign has just been launched by SKOOT, a new mobility app which enables drivers and businesses to automatically offset and reduce carbon from their car journeys. 

The startup aims to raise a minimum of £300K to support its ongoing growth, global expansion and its commitment to plant one million trees to offset motorists’ carbon emissions as lockdown eases and car journeys begin to increase, with a free tree planted every drive. 

SKOOT has joined forces with Eden, a global non-profit re-reforestation organisation with the forthcoming fundraise being partly used to support Eden in delivering the ‘1 Million Free Tree Challenge’ which aims to create and restore sustainable and manageable forests in some of the world’s poorest nations. 

The company is also working on several transport-related projects with a global facilities management company and has set up strategic partnerships with a number of UK football clubs, aiming to re-unite fans sharing a lift when returning to the game and help the clubs navigate to a more sustainable future.

As the world’s first green navigation app, we believe passionately that we cannot afford to let the carbon time-bomb explode. We have already seen traction for our carbon negative mobility solution, even during lockdown, and our patent pending technology offers a simple way for every motorist and every business to drive in a fully sustainable and responsible way – in fact the more journeys completed on the platform the better it is for the planet as SKOOT makes them 110% Carbon Negative. 

This is most certainly a startup worth watching (and supporting) - best of luck to the SKOOT team on their crowdfunding mission!
