Forelock and Load make every effort to ensure we look after our people, our animals and our planet. We have implemented several sustainability initiatives, and we are constantly looking at how we can improve. We are passionate about the 3 R’s. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. We have increased our recycling capabilities within the shop and now have a weekly collection. All of the packaging that comes into the shop is recycled, and all the packaging we use to send items out is the same.

Our suppliers are a lot more conscientious and are actively working to decrease the amount of plastic they are using. It is vital we look at reducing soil contamination, as well as air and water pollution. To name a few of our brands who have really stepped up with increasing their sustainability are Ariat, Harkila, Barbour, Seeland and Samshield.

In the background, we source energy efficient and local options were possible. We think before printing and try to keep a paper free environment where possible. We have changed all of our bags to recycled brown paper and we do not offer a plastic alternative.

We have also started a refill scheme where you can bring back your empty bottle of shampoo, fly spray or coat conditioner and we will fill them up, for a reduced cost. We also advocate where possible you buy 5 Litre bottles, to save buying single use bottles time and again. Click HERE to view our refill scheme.
