We started off on such a tight budget that all of our equipment was second hand which we still maintain and use daily. As we've grown we have invested in the newest, most energy efficient equipment! Our packaging is biodegradable and if you're a wholesale customer, we supply bulk coffee in reusable buckets with vacuum lids to ensure absolute freshness along with a sound environmental solution. We don't have all of the answers but we ask all of the questions and have adapted our processes along our journey to find the best solutions available to us to supply with minimum carbon output.
Everything we do is instinctive. We recycle; we reuse; we compost; we minimise waste; we reduce packaging; we always have! We did all of this before Climate Change awareness hit the headlines! We will continue to find the best environmental solution in all that we do, in fact we only went and organised the worlds first single use cup free coffee festival. You can read more about our practices on our guest blog for Circular Glasgow. Together we can all make a difference!
In 2020 we proudly achieved B Corp Certification following an assessment of our ethical statements and business practices and our commitment to putting people and planet before profit. You can read more over on our blog.
Thanks to the B Corp community we are now part of the B Corp Climate Collective, which is committed to the Race to Zero to address the climate emergency and to meet and (exceed) the Paris Agreement target to achieve a zero carbon economy.
As part of this commitment we have been supported by Green Element to measure our footprint and have registered to donate to 1% for the Planet; we are always looking to donate to environmental projects in Scotland.
