Our Sustainability Approach

At HUSK we are committed to making a positive impact on the environment. Our commitment to sustainability drives every aspect of our business, from the materials we use to our daily operations. Here’s an overview of the steps we’ve taken to create a more sustainable future:

Ethical Material Selection

Leading the Way in Sustainability

We are proud to use materials from Arpa, a company at the forefront of sustainable practices. Arpa’s commitment to environmental responsibility aligns perfectly with our values. Their Bloom Beyond Surface collection showcases their dedication to sustainability, and we’re thrilled to incorporate these materials into our products.

Their objective is to reduce their environmental footprint, with a focus on their CO2 emissions. Arpa’s aim is to cut emissions by 50% by 2026 and to become carbon neutral in the years that will follow as they did for FENIX in 2021.

FSC Certified Timbers

We believe in responsible forest management. That’s why we exclusively use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified timbers. By choosing FSC-certified products, we support sustainable forestry practices that protect ecosystems, biodiversity, and local communities.

Intentional Craftsmanship for durability

Designed for Longevity

We believe that creating products built to last is one of the most effective ways to reduce waste and promote responsible consumption. Our products are carefully designed and considered to withstand the test of time. We prioritize durability and functionality, ensuring that your investment in our products is one that will endure, reducing the need for frequent replacement. We encourage our clients to adopt this same outlook with care and intention. 

Eco-Friendly Processes

Water-Based Lacquers and Paints

Our commitment to reducing environmental impact extends to our production processes. We exclusively use water-based lacquers and paints for our sprayed products. These eco-friendly alternatives minimize the release of harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds) into the atmosphere, ensuring a healthier indoor and outdoor environment.

Renewable Energy

Solar-Powered Operations

All HUSK fronts are designed and handmade in the UK from our Bristol workshop reducing our carbon footprint.

Our workshop, office, and showroom are powered by clean energy from solar panels installed on our premises. By harnessing the power of the sun, we significantly reduce our reliance on non-renewable energy sources. We utilize solar energy to charge our electric van, ensuring that even our transportation is eco-conscious. 

Waste Reduction and Community Engagement

Responsible Timber Usage

We make the most of every piece of timber we use. Any off-cuts are either repurposed for samples or internal projects or donated to local charities, minimizing waste and benefiting our community.

Sustainable Commuting

Cycling to Work

As part of our dedication to sustainability, we encourage staff members to use the cycling-to-work scheme. With all our team members residing locally, our commuting emissions are kept impressively low, contributing to cleaner air and reduced traffic congestion.

Green Logistics

Electric Van Deliveries

Delivering your orders sustainably is just as important to us as crafting our products responsibly. That’s why we use an electric van for deliveries, ensuring that your purchase arrives with minimal impact on the environment.

Packaging Innovation

Recyclable Packaging

Even our packaging is designed with sustainability in mind. We use only recyclable packaging for our samples, minimizing waste and promoting responsible consumption.

We’re proud of the steps we’ve taken to build a more sustainable future. As we continue on this journey, we remain committed to seeking new ways to reduce our environmental footprint and inspire positive change within our industry.
