As a business we do what we can to lessen our footprint on this earth.
Our sustainability efforts are not forgotten when choosing our partners and suppliers.
The roastery we work with runs on renewable electricity generated by solar power - to make use of a clean, renewable energy resource reducing their carbon footprint.
They have a continuous program of working with farmers to research, develop, share knowledge and processing techniques that help farming communities increase quality resulting in the opportunity to command higher remuneration for their product.
They are also registered with the Rainforest Alliance and buys RFA beans to support the efforts of this organisation towards environmental, social and economic sustainability. These efforts include significant efforts to curb deforestation, protect wildlife, manage waste and reduce use of agrochemicals on the path to coffee farm certification.
We, Grounded Cup and are roasters actively promote the use of reusable drink-ware in a continued push on the ‘War on Waste'. And we are working hard to eliminate all single use plastic from our business.
