Certification story

Royal Warrant Holder Peter Reed, a linen textile manufacturer has achieved the Planet Mark certification.

Sustainability is of vital importance to Peter Reed. The company’s ‘Made in Britain’ label means that air miles are minimised, while its made to order policy means there is minimal wastage of materials and power. The company’s offcuts are used for its own packaging and the rest are donated to a local patchwork quilt business. The team monitor every aspect of the conversion of the raw cotton, through to spun cotton yarn and finished products to ensure environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing.

In this crucial Decade of Action, measuring its carbon footprint is a critical step in understanding its impact on the planet and society. Over the next year, it will be working with Planet Mark to reduce its carbon emissions and share its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the company will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hopes to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, Peter Reed will protected endangered rainforests thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It has also donated to the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.
