if we can, we should....
At tossed we recognise that we are the fortunate ones in our society, and there's always more we can do to have a positive impact on our environment, our people, and our community. For us, sustainability is an integral part of the business. Our task-force is formed from all levels of the business, making sure we focus on areas that matter most to our team and our guests.
Our local community
Our partner charity is Greenhouse Sports: based just up the road from our own Greenhouse (where our support team hang out). They use sport to engage young people and improve their life chances. Partnering with schools, placing full-time coaches into the school environment to deliver programmes before, during and after school that empower and inspire young people growing up in disadvantage.
it's all good
We think that our wonderful team in our stores know best when it comes to brilliant salads! Our banging piri salad was created by Jose from our St Martins Lane store and was so good we put it on the menu. What’s more, for every one sold we donate 30p to Greenhouse sports.
clean water projects
Clean drinking water and safe and hygienic toilet facilities are a privilege that few of us can comprehend going without. Globally 663 million people don’t have clean water to drink and 2.3 billion people world-wide don’t have access to a toilet. Our water policy covers both ends of the water cycle. Every time you buy a bottle of life water at Tossed you contribute towards building a well in one of the worlds poorest communities. We have four wells so far and counting…..
Every one of our toilets is twinned with a toilet in a developing community. What that means is not only do we build toilets, but we also help fund basic sanitary education – a combination that saves lives.
grow some bowls
If you want to reduce the amount of single use plastic you use then grab one of our forever bowls in store. For just £5 you can use it again and again (and again)
the P word
We’re taking steps towards reducing the amount of plastic we use. We’ve eliminated plastic bags from the business and switched to paper lids for our pots. Our salad bowls are made from recycled plastic and our hot food containers are made from a by-product of sugar cane which is widely compostable.
we might be talking rubbish but...
Rubbish is inevitably produced as part of any business activity, but we dispose of ours as responsibly as we can. All our sites (where we manage the waste) have recycling facilities, and we aim to recycle 60% of our waste from stores. We’re not quite there yet but won’t stop trying until we achieve it. We have a zero-landfill policy that means any rubbish we can’t recycle is incinerated to provide electricity.
