Harrison Spinks has enhanced its sustainability credentials further by planting 90 native British broad leaf trees at Sharp Lane Primary School in South Leeds. The company has also committed to planting 110 additional trees later in the year, at the beginning of the new season.
David Garbett, quality, health, safety & environmental manager at Harrison Spinks, says: “We started our sustainability journey 10 years ago with our farm, where we rear sheep and grow natural fibres to create our mattress fillings, and added to this more recently with our 56-acre forest that provides wood for our beds.
“We are committed to doing the right thing for a sustainable future so we can all rest easy at night. Last year we launched our first glue-free, zero-to-landfill core mattress unit, Cortec, and our company currently holds three Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, including one for Sustainable Development, summarising our commitment to operating as a business in the most environmentally friendly way.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Sharp Lane Primary School on this project. The aim of the scheme is to bolster our ongoing sustainable objectives while also supporting the local community by creating a habitat for wildlife, promoting biodiversity, providing social benefits and developing the local landscape.“
