We have established strong partnerships over the years in order to help support causes about which we feel very strongly. By joining forces with organisations such as Shelter, Ecotricity and Forest Stewardship Council we can address issues like homelessness, carbon emissions and deforestation.
Forest Stewardship Council®
All our timber comes from responsibly managed forests, meaning you can buy from us confident in the knowledge that your bed frame or furniture has been made with as little impact on the environment as possible.
Throughout our workshop, showrooms and offices we only use Ecover cleaning products. Ecover’s products only contain eco-friendly plant based ingredients which leave fewer unwanted residues, biodegrade even more quickly and have less impact on aquatic life. They are as passionate as us at Warren Evans about protecting the environment.
Founded in 1996 by Dale Vince, Ecotricity were the World’s first green electricity company. Their mission is to change the way electricity and gas is made and used in Britain by making it from renewable sources. We are proud to say that all of our 14 showrooms, offices and our Walthamstow workshop are powered by Ecotricity.
The Big Issue
We teamed up with The Big Issue for the Big Bed Campaign, and since 2006 we've provided free double beds and mattresses to re-housed Big Issue vendors. In addition to this, we have supported The Big Issue in fundraising events such as the London to Paris bike ride, the London to Brighton 100km run, and the Big Sleep Out.
Shelter is a charity that works to alleviate the distress caused by homelessness and bad housing. We have supported Shelter through fundraising events such as Vertical Rush in 2010, Architect in the House 2012 and 2013, Wardrobe Relief 2012, and also through cause related marketing. Our partnership with Shelter continues to grow.
Uptown Oil convert used cooking oil to biodiesel in a low impact, environmentally responsible manner. Unlike fossil fuels which can only be used once, biofuels like biodiesel are renewable - made by growing oil crops. In 2012, we installed a Biodiesel tank at the back of our Walthamstow workshop and began to run our delivery vans on Biodiesel too.
Established in Oxford in 1946 as the family owned business which it remains today, Seacourt were the world’s first zero waste printer. In 2007, they won their first Queen’s Award for Sustainable Development, and in 2009 and their second came in 2011 recognising their achievement of zero waste to landfill! This is why Seacourt print all of the brochures and posters for our showrooms.
