Kingston Park and Leisure Homes Commit to new Tree Planting Programme
Posted on 11th November 2019 at 14:08
For every lodge or park home built, we are committing to planting the same amount of trees used in the production of our park homes and lodges.
Kingston Park and Leisure Homes have committed to planting the equivalent number of trees used in the production of each of their luxury holiday lodges and park homes. With the goal of offsetting their carbon footprint, Kingston have partnered with Hull based charity the PATT foundation run by Andy Steel who have been helping businesses plant trees for 14 years.
Kris Robinson, Commercial Director, said “We contacted Andy and his team after realising it was vitally important to improve our environmental credentials. After conducting an audit on the way we build and how our supply chain operates, Andy’s team recommend that we offset our carbon footprint by planting the equivalent number of trees used in the production of each lodge or park home.”
100s of new tree will be planted each year
Kingston's energy efficient lodges
As well as being good for the planet, here at Kingston, we’re adamant it’s also good for business. We are finding that more and more customers are asking about the environmental aspects of our lodges and park homes. With more park owners looking to create eco destinations, it’s important that park owners can point to the sustainability of their accommodation provision.
That’s not to mention the thermal and energy efficiency of all Kingston’s lodges and park homes which is more comparable to a modern house than a standard static caravan. This not only saves money for owners but also uses a lot less energy.
“It’s great that a luxury business like Kingston Park and Leisure Homes has had the foresight to start offsetting their business.” Said Andy Steel. “By doing this they are not only making their products more attractive to customers but ultimately ensuring the long term survival of their business."
