Taking Care Of The Environment
It means everything to us that we take care of our planet at each stage of what we do. We are passionate about kitchen design for the future and doing everything we can to minimise our impact on the environment.
As we hand craft our cabinetry none of our styles will ever be discontinued. So, when a you want to
update your kitchen, there is no need to add to landfill as it can be updated by repainting, replacing finishing details, even reconfiguring the kitchen design and adding to the existing furniture. All of this means you are investing in a kitchen that will last them a lifetime.
A key part of this is having our workshop in the UK, which allows us complete control over our manufacturing and also minimises transport emissions. We regularly review our supply chains and our production processes are carefully managed to minimise any wastage of raw materials.
We have extensive recycling schemes within the workshop and our showrooms. Sourcing our timber from responsibly managed forests to traditionally blanket-wrapping our kitchens when we deliver them to reduce wasteful packaging.
We even care about the impact from those kitchens that aren’t made by us. We have a trusted partnership with The Used Kitchen Exchange and can work with you to sell any unwanted kitchen, saving an average of 5000 Kgs of carbon – nearly an entire year of being carbon neutral for a family of four. UKE has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and Sustainability and is proud to be a Certified B Corp.
We do what we can to take care of our planet.
