Support the Games Forest Club for a less heavy ecological footprint!

Pocket Gamer Connects London is proud to partner with Games Forest Club to help offset the carbon footprint associated with conference travel, and to care for a section of forest.

How does it work?

When you register a PGC Seattle ticket, you will see an option to donate to this environmental cause. This will be presented to you at the end of the process and is optional – please scroll down to see it. Please consider supporting Games Forest Club by adding a donation to your order. You can select any amount, and you can then pay for it along with your ticket. This will go to help preserve a section of forest in Peru and also contribute to offsetting the event’s carbon footprint.

Alternatively, you can click on the button below, which takes you to a Stripe payment page, where you can make a donation of any amount using your credit card.

What does this mean for your carbon footprint?

You can donate any amount, but by way of example, $85 will protect around 50sqm forest in Peru, which contains up to 3000kg of carbon.

Here are some estimates to help you picture it. These are some common flights you might take (per person, per flight):

  • Seattle to San Francisco: 595 kg CO2
  • Seattle to Toronto, Canada: 2,161 kg CO2
  • Seattle to London, UK: 5,466 kg CO2

All estimates are based on scheduled flights of an average airline, premium economy class.

  • Seattle to San Francisco by train: 5 kg CO2 per person each way (taking the train is the environmentally friendly choice if you’re able!)

In comparison:

  • You emit 2000kg in driving an average car for a year
  • Ethiopia’s per capita yearly emissions are 560kg
