Made from Waste
Foresso is made from a minimum of 65% waste wood content, all sourced from within the UK.
Sustainability isn't just about recycling. We take our commitment through the entire business.
Our aim is to consume more waste than we produce, a challenging goal for any manufacturer.
What is Foresso made from and why?
What else do we do?
We don't use single use plastics and the only disposable items we have are essential protective equipment for our staff.
All of our packaging is recyclable and plastic free, with most also being made from recycled materials.
Less than 5% of our waste goes to landfill. All the rest is either recycled or used for energy reclamation at a facility less than 5 miles from our factory.
Our aim is to become "Waste Negative" - to consume more waste than we produce. To this end we keep close track of every kilogram of waste we produce and consume, reviewing it monthly to constantly improve our strategy.
Every aspect of our supply chain is thoroughly audited to ensure that we are as sustainable as possible. This involves reducing travel distances, choosing more sustainable materials, and reducing incoming plastics.

End of Life
Although not (yet) widely recyclable Foresso can be returned to us for re-use and recycling, every piece of material no longer needed can be ground up and used in future batches so that none goes to waste.
We are happy to arrange shipping back to our Birmingham factory for old material and waste material from projects.
Without clear goals we can't improve.
