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.
a bright idea....
We’ve switched all our stores to LED lightbulbs in order to reduce the amount of energy we use. On average LED’s consume 80% less energy when compared to incandescent bulbs. Additionally they are made from fewer components and more recyclable materials. A small change but every step counts towards protecting our planet
may the fork be with you
We’ve made the switch to 100% recycled cutlery in our stores. Made from paper from sustainable forestry and with FSC® accreditations its also fully recyclable in the paper waste stream.
zero plastic water
We’re proud to work with our friends at Life Water to launch the first the UK’s first Zero Plastic Solution to water on the go! An infinitely recyclable alternative to plastic bottles, every can is 100% recyclable, made from recycled aluminium and BPA free.
Earth, wind and fire
The power in the shops (where we control the supply) is 100% zero carbon. We source our electricity from UK wind, solar and bio-energy farms to help do our bit to reduce carbon emissions.
We proudly serve triple certified Arabica coffee.
Organic, Fairtrade and rainforest alliance certified.
So not only does it taste good it does good too.
farmed with care
Our chicken thigh and breast is sourced from the UK with Red Tractor certification.. this assurance means that you can be sure that high standards have been achieved throughout the whole supply chain. We’re also supporting our British farmers by keeping things local.
Disability confident scheme
Tossed is delighted to have been awarded Disability Confident Certification. Tossed has committed to working with the Disability Confident scheme to ensure that disabled people have access to employment within the brand.
The Disability Confident scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to the workplace. The scheme aims to help employers to successfully recruit and retain disabled people and those with health conditions.
the shirts on our backs
We proudly support a sustainable future for textile manufacturing by only using fair-trade and organically grown cotton in our team t-shirts
Feed our Frontline
During the coronavirus crisis, food became a major challenge for the NHS, so the hospitality industry came together to help hospitals feed frontline staff.
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 hot pots. Our salad and hot food bowls are made from a by-product of sugar cane which is widely compostable. If we have to use plastic its always made from a recycled source.
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.
We’re proud to be supporting the Paperless Pledge, to make e-receipts default by 2023, and to reduce the amount of paper we use.
