Luxury, British-made leather handbag and accessory brand Padfield commits to planting one tree in a UK forest for every bag sold
As part of their initiative to fight climate change, Creating Tomorrow’s Forests have already planted 8 million trees in the UK.
Padfield’s founder Loren believes that being a British brand should not be determined simply by a British lifestyle image or an office address, it should be about 100% authentic British craftsmanship and British materials being celebrated across a brands entire collection.
Therefore it was natural fit for Padfield to champion initiatives that enhance local British communities and the environment.
With a growing international customer base Padfield felt it was vital to chose an initiative that also produces a global benefit.
With ethical and environmental sustainability a major factor in their decision making, sourcing and making locally also means Padfield can keep their carbon footprint low.
Founder Loren says:
“I spent my childhood climbing trees and playing in woodlands. The opportunity to be part of gifting the joy (and necessity) of trees to the next generation is a daily inspiration.
Hundreds of years from now, the trees we plant together will live on, creating homes for wildlife, replenishing natural landscapes, and working to reduce atmospheric CO2.”
