We plant 5 trees for every laptop we sell
By investing in tree planting programmes, we help people and planet by creating sustainable incomes and making the Earth cooler
By purchasing one of our laptops, you have helped us achieve the 100,000 milestone which will reduce the carbon dioxide in our atmosphere by around 12 million kgs!
Our reforestation partners
The forests that Circular Computing™ are restoring will alleviate poverty through income diversity for the poorest communities, and restore soils, water and biodiversity.
Together with our reforestation partners, OneTreePlanted and WeForest, we are working toward the restoration of forests across the world in Africa, America, Asia and Australia.
See where your trees are planted and the positive impacts they have using the links and videos below.
Their mission is to reforest the planet, one tree at a time. This organization allows individuals to simply plant one tree, in order to create accessibility and motivate people to do something positive for the planet.
Through OneTreePlanted, Circular Computing™ are contributing to the Moonlight Fire Restoration Project: Planting 1 million trees over 4 years.
Through numerous reforestation projects, WeForest is transforming global landscapes with the aim of combatting climate change, supporting local people and preserving the planet.
Reforestation projects create businesses in themselves, generating sustainable employment, infrastructure and income security within local and otherwise vulnerable communities.
How can we help reforestation?
The 5 trees we plant for every laptop will absorb, over their lifetime, on average around 600kg of CO₂ to help compensate for the carbon emissions associated with the laptop – including 3 years of use by you.
Working with our reforestation partners in Africa, India and the USA, our target is to plant 1.5 million trees by 2021 to help reduce the effects of global warming. One hectare is enough space for 800-1200 trees. It takes just 240 Circular Computing™ laptops to fill an area the size of a football pitch with trees.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.
The next best time is now.
We are carbon-neutral
We take our commitment to the planet seriously, that’s why we are a carbon neutral certified company and want to encourage other responsible business owners to do so too.
Our carbon footprint has been assessed following ISO 14064-1 and the GHG Protocol. Any residual Green House Gas emissions have been offset using verified projects to achieve carbon neutrality.
Carbon reduction projects
Circular Computing™ is investing in clean water projects, specifically fresh drinking water in Uganda and Cambodia. As well as the natural health benefits, it means that families no longer have to boil the water, saving firewood and thereby preventing carbon emissions from being released.
Borehole Water Project, Uganda
Approximately 60% of the people in the Districts of Alebtong, Kole and Dokolo do not have access to clean water and often walking a great distance to pools or rivers. These water sources are often contaminated with pollutants and potentially lethal bacteria.
The Borehole project in Uganda is providing a source of clean drinking water to a local community by identifying broken down boreholes, renovating them and supplying a maintenance programme to ensure that clean, safe water is delivered as a result.
Ceramic Water Purifiers, Cambodia
In Cambodia, nearly two million rural households do not have access to safe, potable water. Hydrologic, a Cambodian social enterprise, has set out to change this with its locally made ceramic water purifiers.
With a filter in their homes, families no longer need to boil their water to make it safe; reducing indoor air pollution from wood burning - resulting in fewer respiratory illnesses, slashing household fuel costs, and protecting Cambodia’s vulnerable forests.
Clean energy projects
Through our support of clean energy projects, we have offset the CO₂ emissions from the remanufacturing process so that every Circular Computing™ laptop is a certified carbon-neutral product.
Efficient Cookstone Project, Kenya
Throughout Kenya, many people still cook in a traditional way on what is called a three stone fire – this is very inefficient as much of the heat is wasted.
To counter this, the project supplies energy saving, locally made and fuel-efficient cooking stoves for local villages, reducing the need for fire wood and smoke inhalation.
Wayang Windu Geothermal Power Project, Indonesia
Geothermal power plants use steam produced from hot water reservoirs found a couple of miles more below the Earth’s surface, instead of having to use fossil fuels.
Wayang Windu Phase 2 Geothermal Power Project is a 117MW geothermal power station for natural and sustainable energy, which is an additional power unit to an existing grid-connected renewable power plant.
Kocaeli Landfill Gas to Electricity Project, Turkey
Landfill gas is one of the largest sources of methane, so the gas recovery and utilisation project prepares the landfill area for the collection of landfill gas which is utilised to generate electricity.
This process generates power for the area, reduces GHG emissions, reduces the amount of pollutants from the landfill site and provides employment and supports the local economy.
Wind-based Power Generation Project, India
Promoted by the Panama Wind Energy Godawari Private Limited and located at Maharashtra state in India, the project generates power using wind turbines to be sold to the state grid.
This will reduce approximately 1,369,360 tonnes of CO₂ over the course of 10 years, reducing the use of fossil fuels and also reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions.
Why choose Circular Computing™?
When a Circular Computing™ laptop is purchased, it helps to not only invest in clean energy projects around the world but also finances 5 trees to be planted in your name, through our reforestation partners.
In the modern world, it is easy to feel powerless....but the actions of each and every one of us counts.
If just one person in every street, in every neighbourhood, in every town in every country bought a Circular Computing™ laptop, it would save millions of tonnes of e-waste, CO₂ emissions, rare earth minerals and would plant 5 trees for each and every laptop.
