Shower manufacturer Triton Showers has set up a ‘Woodland Wonder’ partnership with environmental charity The Heart of England Forest.
The Midlands-based charity is dedicated to creating and conserving a 30,000-acre forest, aiming to plant 13 million native broadleaf trees. as part of a wider mission to reverse centuries of woodland decline. The UK currently has one of the lowest percentages of tree coverage in Europe, at only 13%.
David Tutton, managing director at Triton Showers, said: “Sustainability is central to what we do as a company, whether that’s informing product R&D or providing an energy and water savings calculator to address domestic wastage. As a business, we have halved our own carbon footprint since 2014, and have committed to achieving carbon net-zero by 2025.
“Further to this, we have been a zero to landfill company since 2015, with all of our waste sorted and sent for recycling at organisations that specialise in certain materials. We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment across our business operations, so when we saw the fantastic work being done by The Heart of England Forest, we wanted to offer our support in working towards their important ambition.”
Karen Woodgate, Partnerships Director at The Heart of England Forest added: “It has never been more important to invest in our natural environment and help combat climate change. Tree planting on this scale makes a significant positive environmental impact, creating a huge carbon sink and helping to mitigate climate change.
“As a charity we rely on the support of businesses and individuals who share our ethos, which is why we’re thrilled to have Triton on board as a partner. Their donation will have a tangible impact on the success of our project, ultimately contributing to a greener future in the UK.”
