Environmentally-friendly Company

Fressco is not just a business, but an idea that aims to revolutionise the way we purchase adapting it to a sustainable way where the environment is its core!. As a change-maker company, Fressco started off with the noble initiative of promoting greener consumption and finding methods to combat the carbon emission phenomenon prevailing due to the production and transportation of Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG). Most of the people have a general awareness of the environment and its conservation. Yet consumers don’t generally believe that individual efforts can make a change towards conserving the environment. This conception discourages them from modifying their consumption behaviour (this is even more difficult when big supermarkets force us to consume unnecessary plastic in the easiest, fastest and cheapest way). Our idea is simple, at Fressco you find only plastic-free and local produce and by the end of 2022 our offer will be 100% vegan, hence by purchasing at fressco, you're helping the environment (by avoiding the use of plastic ), supporting your local economy (by purchasing just British brands) and balancing your carbon emission (by planting trees).

Under the Carbon Tax system, our customers will be charged one per cent (1%) of the purchased merchandise value as Carbon Tax. This system is optional and is used to plan trees.

The carbon balancing initiative was based on the idea of planting a specific number of trees totally with the carbon emission generated from the purchase. But due to the current unavailability of a system to determine the specific quantity of CO2 emitted, the percentage model is been preferred. Though not a permanent solution, Fressco finds it beneficial to plant trees in the Amazon (throughout the ONG Saving the amazon) to effectively promote the ideology. In this way, the carbon tax collected from customers will directly be contributed to planting trees. This initial carbon taxation policy will put Fressco on a path to become a carbon balanced company in the near future.

By supporting only businesses in the UK, and by rejecting plastic, we are fighting against pollution and unnecessary carbon emissions, every little change is an step closer to the change!
