Global Living Properties

Our business is newly formed this year and our mission statement is to provide high-quality living accommodation that people will love, with superb tenant relations. Obviously, housing is a necessity in the world we live in, but it is not always of a good standard. We have been shocked by the standard of some of the houses we have looked around, which have been rented out and had people living in them in a very poor state. We want to provide much-needed housing of a good quality that people can enjoy living in. We also want to ensure that we carry out recommended alterations during refurbishment to improve the energy efficiency of our properties, also by speaking with the local council and the energy saving advice service.

Apparently, the current housing stock accounts for 40% of the UK's carbon emissions and houses within the private rented sector do tend to be less efficient - and so we feel this is somewhere we can make a difference, even if it is little by little. We have just had offers accepted on our first 2 houses and will start renovations this year. We have also said that for every house we acquire we will physically plant 2 trees in a memorial woods we are setting up in memory of our father/husband (which ideally we hope to set up at some stage as a charitable business – which we will call Tree Spirit - offering yoga retreats and sacred space).

What inspired you to start your business?

The business came into being after the sad death of my father at the beginning of the year. It's a business idea one of my brothers and I had discussed with our dad and after his passing we decided that we would still go ahead with setting up the business, and my mum (who is a passionate treesister) decided that she also wanted to be involved along with my other brother and a friend of the family.

 

Why is giving to TreeSisters important to you?

Giving to TreeSisters is important to us because we recognise the necessity of looking after the world we live in. Reducing and mitigating our carbon footprint is therefore of great importance. We want to give something back to the earth, which provides so much for us in terms of sustenance, beauty, and wonder. This has never been so important in human history as now - we are reaching a tipping point, but we can still take action to do something about it. Our mum keeps us up to date with the amazing work TreeSisters are doing and we all (not just our mum) can see that TreeSisters is more than a charity, it is a movement, and we therefore see supporting tree sisters as one of those actions. Our father died of a lung disease and this is another reason why trees, the lungs of the earth, are important to us.

What inspired you to start your business?

I've always had a natural talent for building things with my hands, and this passion grew into designing and building beautiful spaces for others that would improve the quality of their lives and the environment in which they begin and end each day. I consciously create spaces that bring joy to my clients, that make the world a more beautiful place, while being a good steward of the resources used and utilizing the healthiest materials available.

 

Why is giving to TreeSisters important to you?

I am driven by a deep desire to make this world a more beautiful place and to do what I can to give back to this planet that I so deeply love. I am called to do my part in replenishing the resources used in the process of construction. I know that giving to TreeSisters is affecting the well-being of the planet by helping to restore the forests with the greatest need.

Understanding that it takes a village to raise a forest, my humble part in this global effort fills me with joy. I hope to inspire my friends and clients to join the effort to restore our planet's health and ecological balance. We're all in this together, and together we can positively affect the well-being of this planet for generations to come.
