In a world where sustainability is more critical than ever, Hemming & Wills stands out as a beacon of environmental stewardship. Our commitment to sustainability isn't merely a trend—it's deeply ingrained in our ethos. From our core values to our manufacturing processes, we prioritise the well-being of our planet in everything we do.

We're thrilled to announce our partnership with Ecologi, taking our dedication to sustainability to new heights.

Our Sustainable Journey

Our journey towards sustainability has been long and purposeful. Since the beginning, we've been dedicated to giving back and supporting initiatives that promote environmental conservation. We've proudly collaborated with renowned organisations like The Marine Conservation Society and 1% for the Planet, channelling our efforts into protecting our oceans and preserving natural resources.

Celebrating International Forest Day 2024

In alignment with International Forest Day 2024, we're excited to spotlight some of the impactful forestry projects we've contributed to through our partnership with Ecologi.

Ecuador's Water Protection

In Imbabura, Ecuador, the dedication of Aves y Conservación has led to the official recognition of the Otavalo Mojando Protected Water Area. This initiative not only safeguards vital water sources but also creates employment opportunities for local communities, highlighting the synergy between environmental protection and economic growth.

Ethiopia's Geray Nursery

The community-run Geray Nursery in Jabi-Tehnan, Ethiopia, exemplifies grassroots involvement in reforestation efforts. With over 1 million seedlings ready for the 2023 planting season, the nursery empowers local women, demonstrating the critical role of gender inclusivity in environmental stewardship.

Tree Planting in Tanzania

Our involvement in Tanzania's Iringa CDI3 project has led to a remarkable planting season, with over 1.2 million trees planted in just two months. This not only aids in carbon sequestration but also enhances the livelihoods of local farmers through the establishment of Forest Gardens.

UK's Thriving Trees

Our commitment extends to our home turf, where we've seen a phenomenal survival rate of over 95% for trees planted in various projects across the UK. This success story underlines the importance of local engagement and the tangible impact of our reforestation efforts.

Elevating Commitment with Ecologi

Now, we're taking our commitment to sustainability to the next level with our partnership with Ecologi.

By joining forces with Ecologi as a global climate workforce, we're actively involved in funding and supporting a range of sustainable projects worldwide. This partnership aligns perfectly with our values, allowing us to make a meaningful difference on a global scale.

Impactful Initiatives

With every order placed at Hemming & Wills, you're not just investing in quality furniture—you're also contributing to environmental initiatives.

Through our partnership with Ecologi, we're proud to be planting trees both locally and globally with each purchase. This initiative isn't just about reducing our carbon footprint; it's about restoring vital green spaces, supporting biodiversity, and making a tangible impact on vulnerable ecosystems.

In collaboration with the Future Forest Company, we're on a mission to plant trees across the UK to remove one million tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by 2030.

These trees not only help mitigate climate change but also provide essential habitats for wildlife and contribute to the overall health of our planet.

Future Sustainability Goals

But our partnership with Ecologi is just the beginning. We're committed to ongoing sustainability efforts and plan to continue our collaboration with Ecologi to drive positive change.

Our vision for the future is one where sustainability is not just a priority but a way of life.

We're excited to explore new avenues and initiatives that will further reduce our environmental impact and promote a greener, more sustainable world.

Follow us on our social media channels to stay updated on our sustainability initiatives and learn how you can get involved. Together, we can make a difference and ensure a brighter, more sustainable future for generations to come.

At Hemming & Wills, sustainability isn't just a buzzword—it's our passion and our purpose. With every piece of furniture purchased, you're not just furnishing your home; you're investing in a greener, healthier planet. Join us as we continue to pave the way for a more sustainable world—one tree at a time.
