All Bar One focuses on Sustainability

We are always looking to find new ways to reduce the environmental impact of our bars. We’re proud of the work we’ve done so far, but we’re aware of how much more there still is to do. Every day, we make small changes that we hope will have a long-lasting impact on our planet – we’re determined to keep making improvements and sustainable choices, with a focus on:

  • We are founding members of the Zero Carbon Forum and are committed to reducing our emissions and developing a roadmap to Net Zero
  • Our bars are powered with 100% renewable electricity
  • We are working to reduce our food waste
  • We work with Fareshare to redistribute surplus food to communities who need it
  • 96% of our operational waste is diverted from landfill
  • In partnership with Social Bite & Shelter, we are helping to offer employment opportunities to people who have experienced homelessness

All Bar One was the first bar to remove plastic straws with our #strawssuck campaign back in 2018. Ever since, we have continued to work on planet-first initiatives, from refillable soap & moisturiser in our toilets (reducing plastic waste) to highlighting the great work of our sustainable drinks.

All Bar One partners with FEVER TREE x EARTHWATCH

Sustainability has always been at the heart of everything Fever Tree do. From their sustainable selection of ingredients and commitment to avoiding PET bottle to the fight against Malaria, they are committed to doing business in a way that is beneficial to the natural environment and the wider community, driving positive, long-term impact.

What is an Urban Tiny Forest?

  • 600 native trees planted in an area the size of a tennis court in the heart of UK cities.
  • It grows rapidly and brings environmental and social benefits.
  • 500+ species of fauna and flora expected to be attracted to the forest within the first 3 years.

Working in partnership, Fever-Tree and All Bar One commit to supporting the success and maintenance of up to 20 identified Tiny Forests nationwide, with our team members volunteering to maintain the forests in their local city.

One for All & All for Sustainable Rose

Sip a beautifully chilled pale rose wine that cares about the planet. From award-winning sustainable vineyards to artisan farming with hand-picked grapes, we have a selection of wines that put sustainability at the heart of what they do.

All the better with sustainable beer

Drink a sustainable beer at All Bar One with brands who source ingredients locally, repurpose spent grain for cattle feed, and clean plastic from UK’s beaches and world’s oceans.

Order, enjoy, recycle!

We are working hard to reduce the amount of packaging we use and source sustainable options in our delivery and takeaway packaging.

The quality and freshness of our dishes is key and where plastics have been used, we have selected materials that are recyclable or have high levels of recyclable content. We encourage guests to re-use our takeaway packaging in your own home and we’ve already seen planet-friendly creativity at its finest, including paint pallets, craft storage, and even plant pot trays.

We’re continuously researching how we can reduce waste without compromising on the quality of enjoying our food and drinks in your own home.

Use our guide below to learn more about our delivery packaging and the best ways to recycle it.

How to recycle your All Bar One takeaway packaging?

  • Coated boards (such as our food pots, lids, and cups)
    These can still be captured for dry mixed recycling, if free from food waste. Minimising contamination to board recycling is key in maintaining the quality of paper fibres.  

  • Uncoated boards and papers (such as pizza boxes, burger boxes, and greaseproof papers)
    To minimise grease contamination, we use greaseproof papers to aid the recycling of outer board boxes.

  • Plastics (such as food containers)
    Where rigid plastics are used, we have selected materials that are recyclable or have high levels of recycled content. Pots, Tubs, and Trays are currently accepted in kerbside recycling collections by 85% of local authorities.

All Bar One sustainable food

There’s a range of options available for more flexible choices. We’re proud that 43% of the All Bar One menu is made up of Vegetarian or Vegan dishes and we are committed to developing plant rich dishes.

We are partnering with Cool Food Pledge on our upcoming food menu to:

  • increase plant rich options
  • reduce size of menu to help reduce food waste
  • use sustainable paper for our menus
