Sustainability


Our commitment to be sustainable shows in everything we do!

We carefully choose our products, packaging and supplies ensuring that we are making a minimal impact on the environment.

Our coffees, as much as possible, are Fair Trade, Organic, RFA or UTZ.

Our bags are recyclable- where facilities exist. See Recycle BC for details on how to recycle your coffee bags. CLICK HERE.

Recyle

 

The products we provide to our partners- cups-hot & cold, lids and sleeves, are all made using recycled and recyclable materials. Plastics are made using RPET- a recycled material that can continue to be recycled. Hot cups are made using recycled paper material and are recyclable. Sleeves are made using recycled KRAFT material, which can also be recycled.

Please help us and do your part to ensure that the materials are properly sorted into the correct bins at your recycle station. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us using the contact form below or visit www.recyclebc.ca for the most up to date information in your area.

Organic by-product

Looking for organic material for your garden? One of the by-products of roasting coffee is what we call chaff. It the silver skin of the coffee bean that comes off during the roasting process. We collect the chaff and can make it available for you. It is a great additive to your compost. It can also be used as bedding for chickens and pets- although due it's light fluffy texture can be messy. It can also be used as mulching, but again, tends to be a bit messy unless it is kept moist. Let us know if you're interested in grabbing some. We roast in small batches, but often, so there's always some around. Use the contact form below to let us know you're interested and we can arrange for you to pick it up. We would much rather give it away then send it to the land fill.
