What is Grown in Britain?
Grown in Britain is a government and industry backed movement established in 2013 which is working to create a sustainable future for British forests and woodland. It seeks to: Increase British timber production and supply (currently only 13% of Britain’s land area is wooded compared to a European average of 37%). Promote the use of home grown timber in furniture production and wider building projects. Create a lasting culture that respects British woodlands, ensuring they are enjoyed by all, support local wildlife and contribute to a thriving economy.
How is Orpago involved?
At Orpago we are committed to supporting Grown in Britain. We use some of the profit generated from every bespoke kitchen table we make to fund the re-planting of 3 productive trees. These trees are then maintained until they have established maturity.
