License with us
From stoves to stationery, paper to cosmetics - more and more businesses are using our brand to help sell their products.
Licensing is a partnership which sees us leasing our brand to a business - as a respected environmental charity we can bring credibilty to a product.
But licensing benefits both parties - for us it means we can plant more trees to provide homes for much loved wildlife such as dormice and hedgehogs. And for businesses, it can bring exposure to new markets through increased brand awareness.
"License your product with us and you can enter a new world of possibility – not least it will show you have a business with strong ethics. It is very appealing to customers to know that when they buy something, the money they spend is boosting the UK environment." Karl Mitchell, Woodland Trust's Director of Fundraising
When seeking new licensing partners, we look for those which could compliment our brand. We think areas such garden, home, outdoor, personal, food, children and travel work well with us - but are always open to fresh ideas!
Licensing has so far been an exciting journey for us. For example, we have worked with Go Stationery which have produced a range of notepads and diaries for partners including John Lewis, Fortnam and Masons and Sainsbury’s.
And to this day, our current licensing partnerships include everything from stoves to notepads, eco-friendly cosmetics to carbon neutral Woodland Trust Office Paper.
