Trash Awareness


 

Our 'Trash Awareness Plan' is in place provide transparency on the products we are using to help make a difference in the world. Our goal is to give you a better choice when it comes to your coffee packaging. As we grow and become better equipped to meet industry MOQs (Minimum Order Quantities) we will move closer to being 100% 'single use plastic' free. 

We are currently using 3 packaging types with 2 different levels of bio-compatibility. The ultimate goal is to be 100% compostable packaging as soon as possible, but here's where we are now.
  1. 4 - 6oz "Omnigradable" Bags from TekPak (100% Compostable)
  2. 12oz PET Laminated Bags from Tricor Braun Flex (Not Compostable)
  3. 5 lb PET Laminated Bags from Tricor Braun Flex (Not Compostable)

Although, when buying in bulk you will not get a compostable bag at this point, you will be saving about 6.5 12oz bags when purchasing coffee at the largest size. Once we have reached the need to order 10,000-12,000 bags per order, our plan is to design a custom printed, fully compostable bag. Needless to say we're really looking forward to that day.
