At U-Roast, we are passionate about looking after the environment that surrounds us and “keeping it green”. More and more people are becoming environmentally conscious and we see this every day with customers reusing their plastic bags in shops and depositing food and packaging waste in separated containers. So why shouldn’t we do the same? Today, we give you a little insight into what we do to help the environment.
A key factor of our strategy is recycling. To help reduce plastic bag wastage, we supply jute bags that you can use to carry and store your green coffee beans. Our bags are naturally green and reduce the use of wasteful materials. So not only are our jute bags eco-friendly, they are reusable and look great! Simply bring your empty jute bags whenever you are needing a new supply of green coffee beans and we will top you up with your favourite beans.
If it wasn’t for the growth of coffee shrubs, we could not have the wonder that is coffee today. Interestingly, caffeine is used as a natural herbicide and pesticide. So as a little addition, we give away our coffee chaff to our customers for free to help some discourage the growth of unwanted plants, deter those insects away and perhaps provide the incentive to grow something beneficial. Either way, leftover coffee chaff is recycled and can be used by the customer as they see fit. Just another way that U-Roast help to keep it green.
