JT Atkinson

Independent builders merchant, JT Atkinson & Sons, has renewed its partnership with us to help tackle climate change and promote more sustainable practices within the building trade, such as the reduction of plastics

They are an independent builders' merchant with more than 160 years' experience in the supply of Building, Plumbing & Heating, Timber & Joinery, Roofing, Landscaping, Drainage, and Bathrooms,

The family owned business, with 30 branches located across North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and Cumbria as well as Tyne and Wear, Durham and Teesside, will enable 500 new native broadleaf trees to be planted in and around the Yorkshire Dales, helping to reduce CO2 emissions and flooding, while providing homes for our wildlife.

As well as being a positive for the environment, the partnership will help to promote the benefits to our mental health that a connection with nature can have.

Announcing the second year of the partnership, Jamie Atkinson, Sales Director at JT Atkinson & Sons, said:

“We hope the partnership will inspire our staff and customers to create positive changes for the environment and become aware of issues both locally and globally.
“Being a family business, the local community is of massive importance to us and we strive to take care of the people and environment around us, this partnership will enable us to give back whilst also providing a great experience for any of our JTA family who would like to be involved.”

YDMT needs the support of local businesses now more than ever to help us inspire more people to care about the natural world and enjoy the spectacular and precious landscapes of Yorkshire.
