Our Eco Policy

Brighton Bike Sheds is an ecologically aware company.

We love the planet and aim to minimise impact on the environment in all our actions, in the following ways.

 

Materials:

    We use responsible suppliers, that source certified sustainable materials, preferably from within the UK. We use only FSC sourced or reclaimed timber. 

     

    Waste Minimisation:

    We separate construction waste streams for recycling and re-use all site top-soil.

     

    Environmental Care:

      We take care of all on-site vegetation, wildlife and water tables.

       

      Water conservation:

      We design our bike sheds so that they can be used for rainwater harvesting, and our green roofs are drought tolerant.

       

      Green roofs:

      The green roof can help delay run-off from stormwater. The vegetation can help to reduce local urban heat island effect, as well as providing a habitat for wildlife.

       

      Longevity:

      Other bike sheds age prematurely while Brighton Bike Sheds have been designed to last. We design long lasting products which help to reduce demand for additional manufacturing and raw materials. 

       

      Pollutant reduction:

        A good bike shed right which keeps your bikes safe and dry right where you need them will ensure 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.
