In every area of our lives we have always sought to tread lightly on the planet

We understand that being Sustainable is an ongoing journey. We've done a lot to reduce our impact, and we have ambitions to do even more:

In every area of our lives we have always sought to tread lightly on the planet

We understand that being Sustainable is an ongoing journey. We've done a lot to reduce our impact, and we have ambitions to do even more:

Wood suppliers:

All our wood is sourced from local suppliers who are FCS certificated. We don't use any tropical timber. Any hard woods we use are indigenous species from local sustainable sources. We also use recycled timber, although this does incur a surcharge due to the extra processing involved.  

Energy:

We use Octopus Energy to power our workshop, which provides 100% renewable electricity. We have also worked hard to fully insulate the space so that the energy we use doesn't get wasted. 

Waste:

Our waste is processed by Macfarlane Group who have a comprehensive sustainability policy and commitment to strong corporate responsibility. Our clean sawdust either goes to the stables of a local donkey sanctuary or neighbours with chickens (and other animals).

Digital:

The global use of the internet is growing and with that the energy used by providers to deliver our services. Our website and domain are hosted by Krystal who provide 100% green web hosting. They are a B-corp based in Bristol, and their ethos is all about providing an honest, reliable and personal alternative to the large faceless hosting corporations.

Finance:

Our banking is currently under review. A few years ago we switiched to Starling Bank, who have an excellent social sustainability policy, and are committed to Net Zero by 2050. However, we now have some concerns over whether their indirect investments are actually in damaging industries. We are seeking clarity on this before we make a decision. 

Transport:

We own a small deisel van (Nissan NV200) which is not ULEZ complient. We keep it well maintained and use it as little as possible. We have a Nissan Leaf  EV that we use for site visits and small runs to our local suppliers. We live a two minuite walk from our workshop. Our next investment will be in an electric van.

The shelves Gavin built were really beautifully made and were a centrepiece for the whole room. The workmanship and attention to detail, alongside creative solutions to issues that arose during the job, left me confident I was in safe hands. Every time I look at them they make me smile. Thank you shelves and things.
