Regency Carpets and Behind the Stable Door: An Eco-Friendly Collaboration for a Bee-Friendly Environment

Regency Carpets, one of the UK’s highly acclaimed carpet manufacturers, has taken a significant step towards environmental conservation in a unique collaboration with the Behind the Stable Door social enterprise. Renowned for their exceptional work in encouraging collaboration and fostering green spaces across communities, Regency Carpets has partnered with Behind The Stable Door to create an eco-space that welcomes and encourages the growth of the bee population at the Regency Carpets manufacturing site in Bangor.

Regency Carpets, traditionally known for its luxury carpets and customer-centric approach, is enlightening the industry with this new commitment to sustainable practices. As an advocate for environmental conservation, they recognize the crucial role that bees play in our ecosystem.

With this commendable initiative, Regency Carpets demonstrates that a business model compatible with environmental sustainability can also contribute to a meaningful cause, creating a tremendous impact beyond the confines of their industry.

Behind the Stable Door is a social enterprise that aids in establishing green spaces in communities. Behind The Stable Door believes that collaboration can domino into positive change, and have been keen to partner and help in transforming communities into biodiverse environments. Their objective aligns naturally with the vision of Regency Carpets, making the partnership beneficial and impactful in many ways.

Why Bees?

Bees play a vital role in our environment. They are the world’s most important pollinator of food crops, with an estimated one-third of the food we consume daily relies on pollination mainly by bees. However, the bee population is under severe threat due to multiple factors such as climate change, habitat loss, disease and exposure to harmful pesticides.

Understanding this, Regency Carpets and Behind the Stable Door have decided to foster an environment within the company’s spaces that favours bee habitation. Their project encourages the growth of plants that bees prefer, providing bees a safe environment to thrive.

This initiative is marked by a deep commitment to promoting biodiversity and preserving nature. To foster bee-friendly spaces, certain steps have been put into place.

  1. Creating Natural Habitats: Under the guidance of Behind the Stable Door, Regency Carpets has started creating green zones on its property, which includes the cultivation of a variety of flora that attract bees and provide them with an ideal environment for their community’s growth.
  2. Employee Engagement: Cultivating green spaces is not an isolated activity. Regency Carpet and Behind The Stable Door employees are encouraged to join in, bolstering a sense of joint involvement and responsibility.
  3. Public Awareness: The collaboration also focuses on promoting awareness by providing essential information about the importance of bees and their role in the ecosystem.
  4. Extension of the Project: The initiative taken by these two entities is not confined to just their premises. They encourage other communities and organisations to join in creating a sustainable and bee-friendly environment.

The results of this partnership are quite significant beyond environmental benefits. It represents the power of collaboration and the magic that can be woven when industries step beyond their traditional roles. It’s a show of unity and commitment to the environment, to sustainability and the greater good.

Regency Carpets and Behind the Stable Door have proven that when enterprise and social initiative combine, the results can bee extraordinary ? ? ❤️!
