Environment

Environmental concerns and an awareness of social standards are fundamental to our beliefs and every day business operations. All our manufacturing activities are carried out with consideration to the environment and to the welfare of the local communities.

Bramblecrest is proud to be a ‘zero-to-landfill’ company where all our waste streams are disposed of in the most responsible and sustainable manner. Waste streams are either confidentially destroyed (shredded and sent off for recycling), recycled into new products or sent off to a waste-to-energy plant to generate electricity – nothing is sent to landfill.

All our timber furniture is covered by accreditation. Our Java Teak from Indonesia is fully compliant under the EU Timber Regulation which ensures that timber is imported under the FLEGT (Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade) licensing scheme. Bramblecrest is also a member of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which is an independent organisation that promotes the responsible management of the world’s forests. The FSC “tick tree” logo is used on product labels to indicate that they are certified under the FSC system.

Historically FSC accredited timber has accounted for around 25% of our total sales and, now, with the ratification of the Indonesian SVLK accreditation scheme by the EU, 100% of our timber furniture is covered by accreditation. You can buy our timber products with the confidence that you are not contributing to the destruction of the world’s forests.

We are committed to the highest standards of integrity and are a proud partner of the Good Weave foundation which ensures our rugs are made by adult artisans. Our rugs are also made from yarn spun entirely from recycled plastic bottles.

Bramblecrest is a member of LOFA (Leisure and Outdoor Furniture Association) and provides quality products and service in accordance with the LOFA Code of Practice. We are LOFAssured which ensures that all our cushions comply with Trading Standard’s and FIRA’s fire safety regulations.
