Our Eco Journey – Talking Tables UK Trade

Our mission to a more sustainable future

We believe a business can prioritise people and the planet whilst being successful. We know that you share our concern about climate change and people’s wellbeing. You want to party like there is a tomorrow. We’re on a mission to reduce our environmental impact and provide sustainable choices so you really can plan it, host it and love it.

We’re constantly exploring new ways to improve and aren’t shy to celebrate our successes, including some widely adopted world firsts. We’re putting the wellbeing of our people first and prioritising our charities and communities through fund-raising and volunteering. But we know talk is cheap and greenwashing is the new marketing spin.

That’s why we are very proud to be an accredited B Corporation – part of a gathering of companies that meet the highest verified social and environmental standards and who are committed to creating positive change.

We love bringing people together – will you join us?

Our commitments

We’re phasing out single-use plastics: 98% of our new spring/summer 24 collection is free from single-use plastic.

Our paper products are recyclable and by that we mean home recyclable – just pop it in your recycling bin. Some of our napkins are home compostable too.

Where a product cannot be recyclable we ensure it’s built to last so you can use it again and again. Or ‘recycle’ it via a charity shop so someone else can enjoy it.

We’re committed to sourcing in the most ethical, sustainable and socially conscious way possible. We have held an FSC licence since 2012. Look out for our green tree logo for all of our FSC®-certified products.

We’re putting our people first – for example, everyone has £600 a year to spend on their wellbeing. And volunteering days are an important part of our giving back activities which also include charity fundraising.

We will halve our greenhouse gas emissions before 2030, achieving net zero emissions before 2050.

We believe in everything B Corp stands for and having achieved the stringent qualifying standards have been granted accreditation.

We are committed to the long-term environmental benefits of offsetting through tree planting. This year we will expand our tree planting with Ecologi, offsetting all the paper used to produce our paper napkins.

Our Impact Report

We're delighted to share the progress we’ve been making and our highlights over the past 12 months (plus where we can do better) in our first ever impact report. In an age of greenwashing, we believe it’s especially important to be transparent about our environmental and social impact. So, you’ll find facts and figures on what we’ve been up to
in the report.
