The Love Logs Birthday: They’re Celebrating By Planting Their 14000th Tree, Since Launching Just One Year Ago.
The UK’s first ever (and now leading) plastic-free firewood retailer, Love Logs, – is celebrating their first anniversary by shining a spotlight on an impressive new milestone in their history: they’re planting their 14,000th tree this month.
Since launching (and doubling their tree-planting promise) last year in 2020, Love Logs has gone from strength to strength: they’ve expanded their product range, and they fulfilled over 5,000 orders in their first year of trading.
Based in the Midlands, Love Logs provides a wide range of British firewood, charcoal, and natural firelighters, as well as ‘Fuel Kit’ bundles for pizza ovens, barbecues, fire pits, and log burners. More recently, the start-up diversified their offering by launching a brand new Barbecue and Smoking range, – to provide their customers with locally-sourced, sustainable British charcoal, and smoking wood (that’s 100% plastic-free).
Love Logs’ Founder, Heather Emery, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be celebrating our first anniversary by planting our 14,000th tree. The past 12 months have been an incredible journey for us, and we’re so pleased that our vision to provide the UK’s first 100% plastic-free firewood has resonated so strongly with people across the nation.”
Having worked in partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects since their inception last year during the summer lock-down, Love Logs has consistently delivered on their Founding promise to incite positive change, and to set a new precedent for businesses, – both small and large, – across the UK.
More recently (in support of Plastic-Free July), Love Logs pledged to remove the equivalent of 10 bottles of ocean plastic (alongside their tree-planting pledge) for each order they received throughout the month.
“As well helping to plant trees, the support of our customers means that we’ve been able to save over 14,000 plastic bags/nets. We’re so proud of how far we’ve come in just a year, having grown an average of 50% month on month. Looking ahead to the future, we have some very exciting products in the pipeline, and we can’t wait to continue growing the business,” added Heather.
The couple began their venture when Heather quit her job in customer services, and launched Love Logs with her partner, Paul in August 2020. Love Logs’ firewood and charcoal products are sustainably sourced from British woodland, and are delivered to customers’ doors across the UK in 100% plastic-free packaging.
