Buying from sustainable forests is a good start but it costs the environment to get the cabins transported to the UK and we wanted to offset that cost by helping plant new forests for the next generation

Logspan , an importer and retailer of Log Cabins and BBQ Huts, has decided to do their bit for the environment. They have developed a Carbon Neutral Promise to plant a tree for every log building that they sell.
The Logspan Carbon Neutral promise states – “We give back to the environment. We will plant a tree for every Log Cabin we sell to offset any emissions produced in the transport, manufacture and selling of that Log Cabin.” The Logspan Carbon Neutral promise is available at http://www.logspan.com/our-carbon-neutral-promise-a85.
“We decided as a company we wanted to be more pro-active in helping the environment,” said John Newberry, a Logspan Partner. “Buying from sustainable forests is a good start but it costs the environment to get the cabins transported to the UK and we wanted to offset that cost by helping plant new forests for the next generation”.
John continues, “We want our customers to not only have the knowledge that they are buying an environmentally friendly product but you are buying from an environmentally friendly company”.
Trees absorb CO2 and use it to make wood. As the tree grows, it accumulates wood, so accumulates CO2, removing it from the atmosphere where it would otherwise contribute to the greenhouse effect. An average tree absorbs 0.7 tonnes of CO2 in its lifetime, this more than offsets the sale, manufacture and delivery of a single Log Building anywhere in the UK.
So with Logspan’s Carbon Neutral Promise buying a Log Cabin or BBQ Hut from Logspan is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to purchase your Garden Building.
