Scaffolding supplier Leach’s has launched a range of new environmentally-friendly products and to celebrate 100 years in business it’s planting 100 trees to help reduce its carbon footprint.

Leach’s, one of the UK’s most trusted suppliers of scaffolding supplies and height safety equipment, is planting 100 trees to celebrate 100 years of business as part of its ongoing sustainability initiative.

The company is working with Trees for Life to plant 100 trees in the Scottish Highlands.

As the firm continues its efforts to reduce its carbon footprint, it is also launching two brand-new environmentally friendly products, Leach’s Eco Harness and BIGBEN® Ultralite Eco Gloves, delivering sustainable product options to the scaffolding and construction industries.

For much of Leach’s first 100 years, it has prioritised taking care of people. That has involved delivering the ultimate protection for all tradespersons working at height, including scaffolders and construction workers. Now, it is widening its focus to include protecting our planet.

Leach’s has launched a first if it’s kind Eco Harness that’s made from upcycled PET bottles and is certified-free from harmful chemicals. As scaffolders get through many pairs of gloves week in week out the company is also launching BIGBEN® Ultralite Eco Gloves that are made from one recycled plastic bottle per pair of gloves. What’s more, they are washable and reusable too.

Russell Tennent, Managing Director at Leach’s, said: “In recent years, as part of our efforts to implement environmentally friendly working practices across industry, we’ve successfully introduced products like BIGBEN Eco Scaffold Sheeting that can be recycled; we’ve taken more of our manufacturing in house to help reduce our carbon footprint; and we have plans to reduce the waste from our packaging.

We’ve been taking the steps needed to push the industry towards sustainable business practices. These new product launches, alongside the trees initiative, forms the latest in a series of new endeavours to protect our planet.”
