We’re winning at sustainability!
The team at Tong are celebrating after winning a regional sustainability award.
Sustainability Lead, Steph Bates and Head of People and Culture, Neil Barwise-Carr were presented with the Sustainability Award at the FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards in Yorkshire and The Humber today. Organised by the business campaigner, FSB (Federation of Small Businesses), the awards celebrate the achievements and contributions of small businesses and the self-employed across the UK.
“We are delighted and proud to win the Sustainability award. The team has worked tirelessly to embed sustainable principles in all our garden centres and this award is well-deserved.
“We have exciting plans for 2023 that include partnering with the Carbon Literacy Project to educate our team, and this is a great springboard to launch our initiatives,” said Neil.
The winners were announced at a lunch at the Queens Hotel in Leeds that was hosted by BBC broadcaster, newsreader and producer, Elly Fiorentini. We beat Wakefield’s Tunley Engineering, Skipton-based Comply Direct, Scarborough-based Sea Grown and York-based ecups Limited and now go through to the UK final later at the NEC in May.
Wish us luck!
