OUR OWN Jacob rees mogg will be wanting to cash in on this model. I wonder if he will try and combine his dream of owning the exeter chiefs with forest greens saving money ideas with us?

Are you a vegan ? Whats your carbon footprint then? As for a wooden stadium then wouldn't that take a few acres of rain forest?

The planet does indeed seem to be absolutely on fire at the moment.

Using wood as a raw material isn't as good as leaving the trees alone, but it does at least act as a store for carbon.

And it's all about the air miles. FFC is a reasonable mark to trust in that all products will be UK produced. Lots of other marks in the world that make rape of the rainforest look like a sustainable thing to do. I think the carbon neutral tag should be banned. There is no such thing unless they all walk to matches, training ect. The carbon trade off thing is nonsense. Sure FGR are making an effort and probably consume less carbon than others but there is no way they make no impact on the planet. It's like a huge polluting factory can be carbon neutral by planting some trees, it's a lie.
