Giving back to the environment that supports us
Children today and future generations deserve a world that’s safe and sustainable. That’s why we’ve partnered with Ecologi to help offset our carbon footprint and reduce our impact on the environment. After all, this planet is the only one we’ve got.
What does this mean to you and the world?
Since late May 2021, our journey with Ecologi has meant…
Place your flooring order with Factory Direct Flooring
We automatically fund an Ecologi climate project
Ecologi plant a tree on your behalf
Trees we've planted
Since July 2020
Tonnes of CO2 we've offset
Since July 2020
That's the equivalent of
Jumbo jets flying to New York
Contributing for every staff member
Every month, we pay a subscription to Ecologi based on a set amount per Factory Direct Flooring employee. This goes towards offsetting their personal carbon footprint by contributing to Ecologi’s pioneering projects around the world. But, wait, there’s more...
Every order triggers an order for a new tree with Ecologi
On top of our contribution per staff member, we’ve set up a smart automatic system that tells Ecologi to plant a new tree on demand with every order placed through our website. So, each time you buy your flooring from us, a little more is given back to the environment.

Everybody knows why it’s important to take action on climate change. While working with Ecologi is a great start to paying back into the environment and combating the global crisis, we know there is still work to do. Future projects in the pipeline for our infrastructure and teams include:
- Staff cycle to work programme – cutting down on vehicle emissions
- Sustainable equipment and distribution – looking at what we use, from packaging to vans
- Warehouse insulation and efficient heating – reducing energy consumption
