Devon based stove manufacturer is leading the industry with its eco-credentials
Hunter Stoves, a Devon based stove manufacturer, are excited to announce that they are an official corporate member of the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity.
As a company, Hunter Stoves believe that reforesting the UK is vital to ensuring the healthy future of the UK’s natural environment. As a member of the Woodland Trust, Hunter Stoves’ support will help the charity to plant more trees, protect native woodland and wildlife, and ensure that the wood burnt in their stoves is replenished in the natural environment.
Hunter Stoves work closely with the University of Exeter to develop eco-friendly heating solutions and have installed solar panels at their factory in Cornwall as an active measure to lower the company’s carbon footprint. The Woodland Trust initiative forms part of Hunter Stoves’ ongoing commitment to preserving the natural environment and creating wood-burning stoves that aren’t damaging to the environment.
Paul Grimes, Managing Director of Hunter Stoves, commented,
‘We’re extremely proud to be a part of this important initiative, supporting the invaluable work of the Woodland Trust.’ He went on to add, ‘We are hugely committed to operating sustainably as a business, whilst encouraging stove-users to burn wood from sustainable, well-managed sources. Becoming a member of the Woodland Trust was a clear next step for us’.
The Woodland Trust work to protect, restore and create woodland across the UK. Their vision is clear – a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife.
