As part of my vLEJOG challenge, I chose not to get an event t-shirt and opted for a tree to be planted instead. Last week I got an email telling me it had been planted. I’d never heard of trees not tees before, but what a fantastic idea. Instead of providing t-shirts for every person at an event, an organiser can offer the delegate the choice to plant a tree instead.

I was delighted to receive an email with my certificate. And it tells me where my tree has been planted too. A great idea.
