In 2019, we won the Gold Recycler Award by our recycling partner First Mile, being one of their top 10 recyclers out of 20,000 customers.
Here’s a few things we do towards sustainable operations
Coffee packaging accounts for 3% of the total carbon footprint of the coffee supply chain. While this may seem low, we aim to reduce the environmental impact at every stage of the coffee journey.
We know reduction of packaging is the first step – and we’ve made changes in the past year to reduce our packaging where possible, saving 877 kgs of packaging materials last year. All our cartons are already fully recyclable but our coffee bags are unfortunately not. Our next step is moving to more sustainable packaging materials.
After 18 months of careful research and testing, we’ve begun implementing changes to our packaging materials to make them more sustainable. Provided our trials are successful, in 2022 we will make all our packaging fully recyclable by implementing 100% paper and 100% recyclable monoplastic solutions.
