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.

greenhouse sports

Tossed’s partner charity is Greenhouse Sports.  This wonderful organization uses sports coaching and mentoring to empower young people who are facing disadvantage and help them unlock their full potential.

Based just up the road from our own Greenhouse we are honoured to support such a worthwhile cause in our local community.

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.

good coffee

We proudly serve triple certified Arabica coffee.

Organic, Fairtrade and rainforest alliance certified.

So not only does it taste good it does good too.

 

good jobs for good people

Beam is a social enterprise that uses crowdfunding to support homeless people into employment. We’re working with Beam to provide job opportunities for homeless people so they can earn a living and get back on their feet.

farmed with care

All our hot chicken 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.

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

Good food for good causes

The Felix Project collects fresh, nutritious food that cannot be sold. This surplus food is then delivered to charities and schools so they can provide healthy meals and help the most vulnerable in our society. We’re honoured to support The Felix Project in stores where we have food going spare

Feed our Frontline

During the coronavirus crisis, food has become a major challenge for the NHS, so the hospitality industry has come together to help hospitals feed frontline staff.  If you would like to support our campaign or just find out more please click the button below

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…..

Talking toilets

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.

less paper....

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.
