The Nestbox Company and the Environment

As you might expect, the Nestbox Company cares deeply about the environment. As a company dedicated to the well-being of animals, birds and other wildlife, we try to do as much as we can to protect the natural environment.

Our boxes

All our wooden products are Certified FSC® Mix and use wood from responsible sources. We are certified with the Forest Stewardship Council® under number FSC C007915.  Wood from FSC Certified forests is responsibly harvested to benefit communities, wildlife and the environment.

We are FSC Certified by NEPcon, a partner of the Rainforest Alliance, and we are proud to support the work of the Rainforest Alliance in conserving biodiversity and ensuring sustainable livelihoods in many parts of the world.

We manufacture the Eco Barn Owl Nest Box and some of our other boxes from recycled plastic board which is made using 100% plastic waste from carrier bags, bottles etc. in a process which is itself highly efficient in terms of energy, water and other resources used. 


For some time, we have been working to reduce the environmental impact of our packaging. This has involved sourcing all the packaging materials we buy from sustainable sources, reducing the amount of packaging we use, and increasing the proportion which can be recycled after use. We reuse the majority of the packaging we receive from our suppliers.  Over 99% of the packaging we use can be recycled by composting, so whether you compost it yourself or send it off for composting, you can rest assured that it is environmentally positive.

We have an Environmental Policy which demonstrates our commitment to operating our business in harmony with the environment. Our products are developed to be economical with natural resources, both in manufacture and use.

We hope all our products will last for a long time, but when you have finished using one, please dispose of it responsibly.

All the paper we use for invoices, leaflets etc. and other printed material is recycled.
