Timber doors supplier sponsors the planting of 100 trees at local primary school

XL Joinery, the market-leading supplier of doors and associated products, has partnered with Carbon Footprint to sponsor the planting of 100 trees at St Oswald’s Church of England Primary School in Bradford, in order to create wildlife habitats and encourage biodiversity in the school’s grounds.

Both companies joined the pupils of the primary school earlier this month to celebrate the planting of the trees, all of which are native British species grown in the UK and include Dog Rose, Hazel, Elder, Rowan, Wild Cherry and English Oak.

This activity comes off the back of XL Joinery’s recent carbon neutral accreditation, which was awarded due to the company’s ongoing commitment to reducing its CO2 emissions. The additional 100 trees in the school’s grounds will not only create an ideal habitat for wildlife and preserve the natural environment, but the activity also enabled the children to gain hands-on experience of how trees are planted and learn the importance of wildlife in their local area and beyond.

Tim Wood, Marketing Manager at XL Joinery, commented: 
“We’re thrilled to have partnered with Carbon Footprint and St Oswald’s Church of England Primary School for the tree-planting activity. Reducing our impact on the environment is an important part of our company ethos, which is why we’re always looking for ways to actively help. We hope that the children enjoyed the activity as much as we did, and we look forward to seeing the trees come to life over the upcoming years!”

Dr. Wendy Buckley, Client Director at Carbon Footprint Ltd, commented: 
“It’s great to see XL Joinery take a leading position in reducing and offsetting its carbon emissions. By supporting UK school tree planting, the company is also helping to educate the younger generations in environmental responsibility.”

Mr Shaun Wiseman, Assistant Headteacher at St Oswald’s Church of England Primary School, commented: 
“We were delighted when Carbon Footprint informed us that XL Joinery would be visiting our school for the tree-planting activity. It’s wonderful to see the children become so involved with the initiative.”
