We care about the environment.
We care about the environment.

At Woody, our commitment to sustainability goes beyond words. We've joined forces with Earthly, an initiative that resonates with our values. For each oven purchased, we plant 10 trees, and every bag of fuel leads to another tree planted. Over the past year, we've proudly contributed to planting 20,000 trees in Madagascar and Brazil, playing a crucial role in reforestation efforts.
Earthly's motto, "Invest in nature. Remove carbon. Restore nature. Improve livelihoods." aligns seamlessly with our business goals. We recognise that responsible businesses have a vital role to play in fostering positive change. Earthly equips companies like us with high-quality nature-based solutions that not only remove carbon and restore biodiversity but also uplift communities.
Currently, our support is channelled into two impactful projects:
This trail-blazing project run by Eden Reforestation Projects has reforestation and poverty alleviation at its heart. Mangroves pack some punch when it comes to carbon sequestration but also provide a whole load of other natural benefits such as storm surge protection and vital habitat for many species.
Madagascar has experienced deforestation on an enormous scale with only 10% of its original forest remaining today. Did you know that approximately 75% of species found in Madagascar are not found anywhere else in the world? This means it is even more important to protect what is left and help to reforest areas that have been destroyed.
Additionally, we've teamed up with DPD couriers, the UK’s climate-positive leaders. Through carbon-neutral deliveries, we're minimising our footprint and contributing to a greener future. At DPD, we're committed to leading the way in sustainability. DPD’s promise is to make every parcel they deliver carbon neutral, without any additional cost to you. Through rigorous measurement, emissions reduction, and offsetting practices, we ensure that our operations have a minimal environmental impact. This innovative approach includes eco-friendly delivery methods, optimised routes, and partnerships with organisations dedicated to a greener future. We believe that convenience and sustainability can coexist, providing you with efficient and responsible delivery services. You can trust that we take this responsibility very seriously, so join us in making a positive impact on the environment, one parcel at a time.
In our warehouse, sustainability is paramount. Our packaging choices are thoughtfully sourced, adhering to environmental standards. The fuels that you will see available on our website are derived from recycled waste, following stringent accreditation and FSC certification. As we look towards the future, we're determined to achieve even greater sustainability goals. We're considering reducing operational waste, exploring alternative energy sources, and enhancing our supply chain transparency. We encourage our customers to actively participate by supporting our initiatives, spreading awareness, and sharing their ideas. Your input is invaluable in shaping our ongoing commitment to being a sustainable business.
