Our Tree Planting Project

Supporting biodiversity and combating deforestation through our partnership with the International Tree Foundation

National Tree Week at Get Laid Beds

For National Tree Week, we’re celebrating our natural world by opening up the conversation on conservation.

Our passion for sustainability is at the core of our business, and to date we have planted over 82,000 trees through our partnership with the International Tree Foundation. In this and many other ways, we are making a conscious effort to reduce our carbon footprint.

For this reason, we also ensure our suppliers source our solid Scandinavian pine from FSC and PEFC approved forests. As a company that uses the resources of the earth, our promise is to continually strive for environmental sustainability, a goal you will be helping us to achieve.

ITF's work in the UK and Africa

Sustainable Forest Preservation

ITF's work in Africa promotes conservation and reforestation through two grant programmes. They currently work with partners in 8 countries to plant indigenous trees, improve livelihoods, ensure sustainable management of forests and help to combat climate change. Collaborating with ITF makes us proud to become part of the group of partners working towards combating climate change and improving the communities of Kenya.


Why You Should Support this Project

Creating A Positive Impact On The Environment & Improving The Lives Of Many

The Importance Of Trees

Enhancing Human & Planetary Well-Being

Around the world, 60 million people are dependent on trees for their livelihoods. They provide resources that are highly nutritious and are the source of much of the medication we use today. Did you know 1 in 4 ingredients in our medicine come from rainforest plants? Trees play a vital role in communities, providing fuel, food and a source of income to these growing ‘fruit-full’ communities in Kenya. This is why we only use sustainably sourced wood for our handmade beds, to ensure that these communities are not affected.

Creating Livelihoods

Improving The Lives of Civilians

Many of the communities ITF works with plant fruit trees on their smallholdings or in their gardens. Mangoes are a prime example. In Uganda, their community partners MADLACC plant mangoes, avocados and jackfruit amongst their crops. Not only do these trees benefit the land, they also provide a source of nutrition for the entire household and a way to earn an income.

Supporting Indigenous Reinhabitation

Preserving The Habitats of Forest Species

There are almost 40,000 known animal species populating the forests around the world. Despite the fact that rainforests account for less than 2% of the planet’s surface, they are inhabited by half of all its animal and plant species. The work we are doing is to support ITF’s efforts to return the habitats of the 30% of forest species that were lost through deforestation, is part of a larger initiative.

Our Progress

Over 10,000 Trees Planted In 2018

Through our awareness campaigns and partnership, we helped to raise enough vital funds to plant over 10,000 trees in Kenya in 2018, as part of the ITF’s 20 Million Tree Planting Campaign. We’re excited to continue this project, by working closely with the ITF and our customers. Together, we can help combat climate change and build livelihoods in the communities that need it the most.

You Can Make A Difference

How Your Support Will Help

Your support will help us to plant more trees where they are most needed. Within 3 years, those trees could be producing fruit to be sold at local markets and improving the lives of rural families by reducing their dependency on depleting forest resources. In the UK, those trees could provide a habitat for wildlife and a place for communities to come together and learn about the environment.
