Our Mission for Sustainability
Our company was founded on the mission to give back to the community and to charities. There’s only one thing we’re more passionate about than our love of great coffee and giving back… the planet! This is why we’re making an effort to use sustainable practices in every part of our business.
From working with farmers who create a sustainable farming practice to purchasing our bags from a U.S. manufacturer that is working to produce bio friendly packaging and reusable bags. Our coffee bags are resealable and can be used to store other food and products even after its initial coffee use is done.
Coffee grounds also make great fertilizer for most plants and for composts.
Our shipping boxes are made in part with recycled materials (up to 100%) and for every order we place with the manufacturer they plant trees in our national forests through the Nation Forest Foundation.
Carbon Neutral Shipping - Our latest effort to go green and help the environment is our partnership with Route to offer Carbon-Neutral shipping.
