Turning Black Friday Green
The environment is at the heart of what we do at Balcas Energy. Instead of Black Friday, we will be celebrating ‘Green Week’. During this time, we are supporting Warriors For Humanity on their mission of planting 1 million trees in Kenya.
For every online order placed during Balcas Energy’s Green Week, we will be donating 10 trees for each customer’s purchase to be planted in Kenya.
What is the aim of Warriors For Humanity?
Warriors For Humanity are on a mission to plant 1 million trees in East Africa resulting in 31,250 tonnes of carbon being removed. 50 Participants from Ireland have made their way to Kenya to plant these trees with the additional benefits of providing food, income, shelter, and tools for communities affected by climate change.
Why did Balcas Energy choose Warriors for Humanity?
We have chosen Warriors For Humanity this year in support of Glennon Brothers who are sponsoring their very own Longford ‘warrior’ Mickey Quinn, currently out in Kenya improving the living standards of local communities.

How do Balcas Energy wood pellets help the environment?
Our wood pellets at Balcas Energy are created to a high standard, bagged securely, and meet ENplus A1 certification standards which ensures your biomass appliance will not face any issues such as high carbon emissions which may be experienced with other wood pellets.
When a tree falls to the ground and rots, it releases carbon dioxide. When we harvest a tree from a local forest, Balcas uses every part of it to create timber products and energy. Balcas ensures more trees are planted for each one we use. The products we manufacture from our timber such as those used in construction become long-term carbon sinks – storing carbon for many years.
We use 100% renewable energy to create our wood pellets in our two local plants in Enniskillen and Invergordon. Please watch our video to learn more about our commitment to sustainability.
