Who are Loft UK?

Furniture retailers, tailored service providers, interior design experts, and most recently container homes developers – Loft UK could be considered the dab hands of housing services. They offer a range of services that cater to a variety of markets including students, landlords, and the public. And have established themselves as one of the largest residential service providers in the UK.

They have become known for their multifaceted approach to sustainability where they are reversing the trade stigma by actively limiting their impact on the environment. Their partners and approach to both environmental and social causes have made LOFT one of the most proactive companies making a significant contribution to the planet’s longevity.

Why One Tribe joined forces with LOFT

Like One Tribe, Loft understands that sustainability is a responsibility not a choice. Their excitement for overcoming environmental and social issues has become something that blends into their daily operations. The people-first company has set the bar for other businesses to follow in their footsteps by implementing numerous sustainability practices.

Recycling and waste management

Conscious that not enough effort is being made to improve the footprint of the mass retail industry, LOFT are determined to solve – not add to – the problem. They work with specialists who recycle high-waste household items like mattresses and reuse the raw materials for multiple different uses.

And it’s not just mattresses they are steering away from landfills. The team currently holds a 96% landfill diversion rate – yet continue to work towards that 100% mark. Anything that can’t be recycled is sent to a refuse-derived facility (RDF) and is converted to clean electricity.

They also up-cycle furniture where possible by donating old pieces to charity partners across the UK.

Quality materials 

LOFT only ever works with products of high quality. Making them last longer and minimising the risk of wear and tear and the need for replacement products. They have even designed their exclusive Regenerate Mattresses. Made in the UK from 95% recycled materials to create an eco-friendly, opulent mattress.

Giving back to nature

LOFT is fully aware of the toll business operations can take on the natural environment. And while they admit that it’s not always easy to find solutions to every problem, they continue to give back to the planet in any way that they can. This includes their tree planting pledge to plant one tree for every apartment they furnish. One Tribe even visited LOFT this year at their annual tree planting event where we planted over 2,700 trees together!

Most recently, LOFT have partnered with us at One Tribe to further improve their relationship with nature. By protecting trees across endangered regions, they are helping not only to restore some of nature’s most dynamic landscapes, but to maintain a healthy number of trees that can effectively sequester large volumes of toxic emissions produced by businesses.

Partnership with One Tribe

We are immensely excited to assist LOFT in their journey to Net Zero by working to safeguard nature’s most valuable carbon sink – rainforests.

Every product sold by LOFT now funds One Tribe’s conservation partners to continue protecting rainforests worldwide. Once a sale is made online, a small portion of that sale is then automatically donated to conservation projects across the world. Meaning customers can instantly save endangered landscapes with just the click of a button.

Funding the protection and regeneration of forests is one of the best ways we can actively reduce our impact on the planet. Mature trees have the ability to absorb an average of 10 to 40 kg of CO2 per year. Meaning we can reduce a business’s carbon footprint by preserving trees that absorb high volumes of carbon By supporting One Tribe projects, the team at LOFT are now actively reducing their environmental footprint and contributing to a brighter future for our planet. So far in 2022, the team has protected 162,000 trees and counting!

Thank you LOFT for working with us towards this goal!
