In today's interconnected world, we believe businesses have the responsibility to work toward creating a positive impact through their work and minimizing their carbon footprint.
We've developed an internal Impact Initiative to lessen the impact our business has on the environment and to give back to the communities that produce and consume the coffees the we roast. Our current impact efforts may be relatively small in scale, but we truly believe that every bit counts. And we're just getting started.
One tree planted for each bag sold.
On the second anniverary of the founding of our business, we began our tree planting iniative to further realize our goal to create real-world impact through business.
Commercial agriculture of any kind often leads to some level of deforestation to make room for crops, and restoring forests is a proven technique to mitigate climate change.
We've partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects, a 501-c3 non-profit organization, to help restore forests on a massive scale.
For each bag you purchase - whether directly from us or one of our local partners - we purchase a tree for Eden's team to plant. One half of the trees we donate are planted in East Africa, while the other half are planted in Central America.
Thanks to your support, we've planted 3,481 trees to date!
Carbon Neutral Shipping
As a roaster operating primarily online, one of the biggest sources of carbon we generate is shipping your coffee to you. That's why we contribute to the Shopify Sustanability Fund to purchase carbon offset credits for every package we ship.
Each shipment's carbon footprint is calculated by size, weight, and distance, and an appropriate donation is made at the end of the month to offset the carbon generated by our shipping.
Donations help fund over 20 vetted carbon sequestration organizations who employ various technologies to capture carbon in our environment.
Like all of our impact initiatves, these initiatves are funded entirely from our own profits and come at no additional cost to our customers!
