Bereco donates £28,000 to the World Land Trust
Timber window and door supplier Bereco has revealed the total it has donated to the international conservation charity World Land Trust since 2017.
From July 2017 to March 2022, Bereco donated £28,000 to the World Land Trust as part of its ‘Buy an Acre’ programme, designed to protect the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats.
For each door sold, £1 is donated to the World Land Trust, which so far has protected 269 acres of habitat through the programme. The donations made currently support the creation of permanently protected nature reserves in Argentina, Brazil, and Kenya.
Nicola Harrison, managing director at Bereco, said: ‘We are very proud of the donations we have made to the World Land Trust over the last five years.
‘As a business reliant on timber, we are highly conscious of the damage deforestation can cause to the natural world, and so we only use FSC 100% wood sourced from FSC certified forests.
‘Our next target is to reach 1000 acres of protected rainforest habitat through continued donations to the World Land Trust, and we are confident we will achieve this.’
Bereco also invites its customers to join their support of the World Land Trust with the option to match the donation at the point of ordering.
Timber is one of the most sustainable building materials, as not only are responsibly managed forests fully renewable, but trees capture carbon dioxide. When harvested, the timber acts as a carbon store, retaining its carbon content without releasing it back into the environment.
