The Pope an old hand at planting trees and bushes to save the planet

Rome, Italy - The Pope is reportedly making a bomb on the Vatican website through selling carbon offset indulgences to jet-setting eco celebs.

These include voluntary donations to a holy carbon capture fund which guarantees safe RIPs to heaven in exchange for a hefty lump sum.

The news of this venture comes amid rival reports that portly septugenarian Brit crooner Elton John is renting out his gas-guzzling 10-seater Gulfstream.

In exchange, clients drop a thick wedge on the singer’s woodland charity fund which aims to reforest huge swathes of Great Britain.

These are located mostly on John’s vast landfill estates.

This morning, a Vatican Institute of Religious Perks spokesperson denied the Pope had contracted out parts of his indulgence business nor retained anyone on a 25% bung.

Readers planning their annual pilgrimages are welcome to offset any environmental worries by donating to the Spoof website’s very own carbon capture scheme.
