Here at BTP we are on a mission to Make Things Better and one of the most important ways we do this is through the energy that we choose to use.

As you can imagine our cafes can get through a fair bit of energy – from the coffee machines to the ovens to the lighting – it all adds up to a lot of wattage. We are incredibly keen to minimise the impact this may have and so reduce our carbon footprint. We do this in a number of small ways – tracking our consumption in every café and ensuring that our teams are on the ball with turning stuff off when not being used – the usual sort of thing – all good important stuff and collectively it makes a big difference.

One of the big ways we reduce our impact is by only using green energy. We are very proud to be powered by green energy from Ecotricity – an inspirational privately owned company. We are very much on the same page when it comes to sustainability and it is great to work with a company whose values we share and we can trust are doing the right thing

Ecotricity was the world’s first green energy company and their mission is to change the way electricity is made and used in Britain. They are the only energy supplier in the UK that’s registered with The Vegan Society for their green electricity too – which means they are the only officially vegan supplier.

But this aside, they are different from other ‘green’ energy suppliers. They use the money from their customers’ energy bills to fund the building of new sources of green energy. They refer to this as turning ‘Bills into Mills’ – energy bills into windmills. All their profits go back into this mission.

So just by working with Ecotricity we are helping make Britain greener. And you can too. If you choose to switch to Ecotricity you will get a £50 BTP Gift Card. Just visit their website to find out more.
