It’s our planet and we all share a responsibility
to protect it for future generations.
We love our planet.
We aim to minimise our impact on the environment and actively implement practices to enhance it.
We use responsible suppliers that source certified sustainable materials, preferably from within the UK. We only use sustainably sourced timber from the UK or imported by sea from Canada and Scandinavia.
We separate construction waste streams for recycling and minimise waste where possible by ordering optimal timber lengths.
We take care of all on-site vegetation, wildlife and water tables.
We design our sheds so that they can be used for rainwater harvesting. As well as this our green roofs are drought tolerant.
The green roof can help delay run-off from stormwater. The vegetation can help to reduce local pollution and urban heat island effect, as well as providing a habitat for wildlife.
Other bike sheds age prematurely while Brighton Bike Sheds have been designed to last. Long lasting products not only represent better value, they also reduce the need for additional energy in manufacturing and transportation, and the drain on raw materials.
A good bike shed that keeps your bikes safe and dry right where you need them will soon mean that the car rarely gets a run out. As well as being quicker (during rush hour), healthier and cheaper than driving, cycling is also 100% greener, saving 3 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually (per 10,000 miles/year). Not to mention carbon monoxide, sulphur oxides, hydrocarbons and fine particulates resulting from the internal combustion engine.
