Environmental Policy

 Pure Wood Range

In all areas of our business we expect to act responsibly. Timber is a precious resource in terms of both its own life and of the diverse flora and fauna it supports. T&G pay particular attention to the products we manufacture and buy, their sustainability and suitability for our increasingly environmentally concerned customers and consumers.

Patrick Gardner – MD

With the focus on the natural world, T&G's commitment to ethical sourcing is a priority. We have successfully reduced our carbon footprint by removing any unnecessary packaging on products.

Environmental concerns are central to T&G’s business as our product range is predominately wood. The policy of the company is to try, where possible to ensure that all T&G products are manufactured from timbers sourced from well-managed and sustainable forests and plantations.

 FSC® Certification

T&G have been at the very forefront of developing the market for sustainable wooden Housewares products in the UK and overseas and were one of the first members of the World Wildlife Federation 95+ Group. (WWF 95+).

T&G have held FSC® certification since 1999, and the FSC® logo on our products provides you the customer with an independent guarantee that the forest is managed according to agreed social, environmental and economic standards. Today over 70 of our products are certified according to the FSC® principles. We are continually adding to this number and introducing new ranges, with many of our products coming from European FSC® sources.

Please look for the FSC® logo against certified products.

Compliance legislation

T&G place a great emphasis on compliance legislation. We anticipate our customers’ needs in order to be able to show that T&G products comply with the Environmental Health & Safety laws. From FSC accredited wooden products to the non-toxic coatings used on the new ‘Provence’ wireware range.
T&G are regularly requested to product information on the mineral Oil or varnish used on our cutting boards; this we do as a matter of course.
