Our choices affect the world. Here are a few things we can do together:
Drink ethical coffee
Drink ethically sourced coffee from farms that promote sustainability – supporting farmers who are doing good things for the environment and their communities. We seek out farms where environmental sustainability is practiced. We look for a variety of certifications and criteria for our coffee, including Organic, Rainforest Alliance Certified, ethically traded, and Shade Grown, and establish direct trade with farmers to help improve communities where coffee is grown. Enjoy a cup of something good!
Take home a bag of coffee and help plant trees! Trees soak up carbon like nobody’s business. So with every bag of coffee you buy, we make a donation to TreeEra to plant trees in Canada.
Compost as much as possible
Compost our cups, hot containers, straws and bags! Let’s continue to advocate for compostable materials and composting facilities to reduce landfill waste. If you garden at home, grab some coffee grounds to kickstart your own compost.
BYOC – Bring your own cup
To thank you for helping reduce single-use packaging, we’ll fill* your reusable mug for the price of a small (up to 20 oz). Don’t have a mug? Buy one and we’ll fill it for free! *Regrettabley, a few Good Earth Coffeehouses are restricted from filling reusable mugs at this time.
Reduce single-use packaging
We keep packaging to a minimum at Good Earth. We strive to find the most environmentally friendly packaging options available, from recyclcble coffee cup & hot food container lids, recyclable plastic cups & lids, to compostable paper food packaging, paper cups and food containers. Even our tea is composted, and our Grounds for your Garden program eliminates waste while giving your garden a boost.
