    Email:

    CAT is an educational charity dedicated to researching and communicating positive solutions for environmental change. CAT’s visitor centre demonstrates practical solutions for sustainability. It covers all aspects of green living: environmental building, eco-sanitation, woodland management, renewable energy, energy efficiency and organic growing. A spectacular water-balanced railway delivers visitors to the CAT site, providing the first stop for those interested in discovering sustainable technologies via exciting and interactive hands-on displays. These are continually updated to reflect the changes and needs of a society increasingly aware of the need to adopt sustainable technologies and lifestyles. In the summer months there are guided tours, or individual audio-tours are available. The courses taught at CAT’s Graduate School of the Environment are respected across the world, providing a big-picture, integrated approach to sustainability and the knowledge, skills, inspiration and networks to make a real difference in your chosen field. A series of short courses runs alongside the Graduate School. CAT also provides information resources, an online shop, venue hire and group visits for schools. The visitor centre includes a shop, café and accommodation.

    Coed Cymru began as a campaigning body to heighten awareness of native woodlands in Wales, particularly among the farming community who own most of these woodlands. Its aims are to improve the landscapes of Wales containing woodlands and trees, by providing advice and support, access to innovation, and grant aid. Contact the office for information and support regarding any aspect of woodland creation, management and timber. Coed Cymru brings research into practice and its established body of work in timber development enables cooperative projects between woodland and timber businesses, increasing the economic value and performance of Welsh timber.

  • Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)

    Email:

    The Forest Stewardship Council’s ‘tick tree’ logo is used on product labels to indicate whether they are certified under the FSC system. When you see the FSC logo on a label you can buy timber and other forest products, such as paper, with the confidence that you are not contributing to the destruction of the world’s forests. FSC-certified products are made with material from forests, independently certified as being managed to an internationally agreed set of social, economic and environmental principles and criteria and/or verified recycled sources. FSC-certified products are widely available in the UK, from garden decking, charcoal and garden furniture to wallpaper, bathroom tissue, footballs (made with natural latex) and kitchen equipment. These can be found in many high street stores and most major DIY shops, including B&Q, Wickes and Homebase, Sainsbury’s, The Co-operative, Marks & Spencer, John Lewis and Argos. Many small, independent retailers also stock FSC-certified products. FSC-certified paper and board is increasingly used for packaging, catalogues, direct mail and general office and home use, in the UK even 1st and 2nd class postage stamps are now FSC certified.
