MAJOR RETAILERS HELP WITH READY TO BURN

We have already given an insight into the initiative – Ready to Burn, (https://www.readytoburn.org/), which is an initiative from Woodsure, the UK’s only wood fuel quality assurance scheme that helps homeowners look after their stoves and improve air quality. 

Now major retailers are getting behind the Ready to Burn initiative in an attempt to increase the numbers of consumers buying correctly seasoned wood, which has the Ready to Burn certification. More than 50 companies have signed up to the initiative.

Since the launch of the Clean Air Strategy, the government have held a consultation on proposals to get rid of the most polluting fuels. 

In a recent meeting, Thérèse Coffey, Environmental Minister said:

“Burning dirty fuels to heat a home is a huge contributor to air pollution and I warmly welcome this commitment from retailers to help move consumers to burning cleaner fuels for this winter.”

and

“I encourage all stores to follow their lead, and for all users to stop using wet wood and smoky coal to reduce the amount of harmful pollution to which they unwittingly expose themselves, their families and the environment. Dried wood and smokeless coal make for a better fire both heatwise and healthwise.”

Many retailers have already committed to help in this initiative, which include:

Booker – The wholesale company have confirmed they will be including Ready to Burn products as part of their autumn/winter range.

Asda – The supermarket has removed non-kiln dried wood logs and house coal from all of its London shops, and is guiding customers to make more environmentally friendly choices. 

B&Q – Staff have been trained on the benefits of cleaner fuels, and the benefits of Ready to Burn products.

Lidl – They have said they will only sell wood that keeps to Woodsure conditions. Which means consumers have a guarantee that the fuel meets specified standards, namely that the wood has the right moisture level and is sourced from managed woodlands. 

Tesco – In-store advertising promoting the key benefits of “Ready to Burn” solid fuels have already started to appear across the country.

As well as a plan to phase out the most polluting fuels, the Clean Air Strategy states that only the most cleanest, environmentally friendly stoves will be on sale in 2022 (Ecodesign Ready).

All of the Charlton & Jenrick stoves are already Ecodesign Ready, some 4 years before this rule comes into force.
