Farlows has been providing gear and guidance to country enthusiasts for over 170 years. As a Royal Warrant Holder, Farlows is responsible for achieving the highest standards of environmental practice and for operating in a sustainable manner.
In this crucial Decade of Action, the company want to ensure that it is a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the company will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.
Through Planet Mark, Farlows has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.
It has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Farlows has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
