c2c has announced that it is running its first ‘Go Green’ next week to help raise awareness of climate change.

They will be sharing their commitment to making their impact on the environment as small as possible.

As part of the initiatives, c2c is encouraging customers to leave the car behind and take the train by offering a 50% discount code during the week, for use on off-peak tickets bought for travel between 01 October -03 November.

Some of the ways that c2c will be showing their commitment for the environment over green week is sharing wildflower seeds for station staff to scatter around stations, seeking advice from the Essex Wildlife Trust on how to use disused land around the railways and stations to protect local wildlife, and talking about more eco friendly ways for customers to get to and from the station.

Customers can claim their Go Green discount here: www.c2c-online.co.uk/create-your-day-out/go-green

What did the officials say?

A spokesperson for c2c said:

“Rail travel is one of the greenest forms of public transport. We’re in a great position to be advocates for going greener. This week is a celebration of all the ways we are green, and a commitment to being even greener in the future.”

John More, Living Landscape Coordinator for Essex Wildlife Trust said:

“We’re thrilled to be working with c2c rail on this project raising awareness around the potential wildlife value  of how to use disused land and how it can be improved to it promote wildlife.”
