COMMITMENTS

Socially, Economically & Environmentally Responsible


Tinware Direct is fully committed to ethical trading. This means ensuring we are socially, economically, and environmentally responsible and we support and run numerous initiatives to help reduce our impact on the planet.


Sourcing Materials

We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our products ensuring we source through recognised standards such as FSC approved, using recyclable material wherever possible and reducing chemicals and plastic from manufacture.

Quality

We pride ourselves on having attained ISO:9001, a certified quality management system (QMS) for organisations who want to prove their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet the needs of their customers.

Our Supply Chain

As a company we support the development of environmental standards in the countries we operate in through our memberships as well as working directly with our suppliers to ensure their standards match our own.

Office Initiatives

Our environmental commitments don't just end at our supply chain. We run several office initiatives designed to reduce our environmental impact. These include recycling schemes, reducing waste, replacing power hungry equipment, installing sensor lighting and encouraging the use of public transport for visiting customers and events.

No Single Use Plastics

As a packaging company, we understand the impact packaging can have on the environment. As a result, we've phased out all single use plastics from our products and focus solely on sustainable packaging solutions.

Below are some of the great organisations we are also proud to support, or be a part of.
