Alex Price, Ecologi: making positive climate action affordable and accessible to everyone

Alex Price is CTO and Co-Founder of Ecologi.

Alex saw a unique opportunity when he co-founded Ecologi, to combine his passion for climate activism with technology.

Ecologi makes positive climate action, simple and affordable for individuals and businesses all over the world. They calculate their carbon footprint and use their money to fund reforestation and carbon reduction projects around the planet providing them with real time updates on their impact. So for as little as £5 per month a person can offset their carbon footprint.
