Ecotalk + RSPB the new mobile phone provider

The RSPB have joined forces with Ecotalk, one of Britain’s most sustainable phone providers that’s committed to change, to create Ecotalk + RSPB.

Ecotalk + RSPB will invest 100% of its profits in to nature, paying for new reserves, creating new homes for wildlife under threat, while powering all calls, texts and data with green energy from the wind and the sun.

Ecotalk and the RSPB - a match made in heaven

At Ecotalk, we’re excited about the work we can do together with the RSPB.

The RSPB manages over 200 reserves across the UK and works worldwide to tackle issues facing nature and wildlife. Its work has never been more necessary – with nearly 50% species in the UK in rapid decline – but it’s also never been harder.

Every day, the RSPB sees first hand how the climate crisis is having a severe effect on the natural world we all love. There are simple signs like how garden birds are changing their behaviour: great tits, for example, are laying their eggs 11 days earlier than they did 40 years ago; and previously migratory species like blackcaps are no longer leaving due to our milder winters.

And there are also more complex signs, with species like Common Scooters slowly decreasing in number as their habitable range moves north, and seabirds like puffins no longer being able to find adequate food in our oceans due to increased water temperatures.

Ecotalk + RSPB - taking action together

Ecotalk and the RSPB both firmly believe in demanding more from our leaders, calling for strong laws for nature, sustainable farming practices, and a green economic recovery.

We also believe in living more sustainably; changing how we holiday, reducing our diet’s carbon footprint, and changing how we power our lives are all small changes for us, but they result in big rewards for nature.

When you switch to Ecotalk + RSPB, the RSPB will receive donations* every month for as long as you remain a customer. Every year, we’ll use this money to fund land purchases at RSPB reserves across the country.

Switching to Ecotalk + RSPB takes just five minutes and you can keep your current number. Visit ecotalk.co.uk or call 0333 800 4400

Climate Clock

The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
"The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
Ecotricity is a sponsor of the Glasgow Climate Clock that will run every night until COP26.
