Ground-breaking new train ticketing service Trainhugger is enabling people to explore Britain by rail, visit friends and family and care for the planet – all at the touch of a button. Every time a passenger makes a rail booking through the Trainhugger app or Trainhugger.com, a tree is planted here in the UK.
Crucially for Trainhugger customers, this investment in the countryside’s future comes at no extra cost to them. Passengers have access to the best available fares and pay the same ticket price as they would elsewhere. The only difference is that Trainhugger donates a third of its revenue to tree planting.
The company’s innovative technology is now live, with an app coming soon. The start-up also hopes to give a much-needed boost to the UK travel industry which has been hit hard by the pandemic.
Customers can access all their journey information in the Trainhugger app, which also keeps track of how many trees each user has planted and how much carbon has been saved.
Trainhugger plans to plant 10 million trees by 2025.
