At ParkatmyHouse we are committed to reducing the impact of motoring on the environment. We are actively reviewing our business operations to ensure that our carbon footprint is minimised. And we are excited to announce that we have partnered with GlobalGiving.co.uk, the online marketplace that directly connects donors with grassroots projects in less developed countries.
GlobalGiving's mission is to build an efficient, open and thriving marketplace that connects people who have community and world-changing ideas with people who can support them. The projects funded by GlobalGiving benefit communities that wouldn't otherwise have access to supporters in the UK.
ParkatmyHouse now donates a proportion of its revenue from every parking space booking on our site to GlobalGiving environmental projects. Unlike many "Carbon offsetting" projects, minimal overheads at GlobalGiving ensures that 90% goes directly to the project.
Have a look below at the projects your parking space bookings will help support. We also encourage you to visit the GlobalGiving site to find out more about their important work and to track the progress of the projects your bookings are helping to fund.
