We care about it. The animals, the seas, the plants and the humans. We try really hard to be really good.
The coffee roasters we partner with are predominately "fair trade" and/or they sustainably source directly from local farmers in the bean belt. We work really hard to make sure the coffee we feature is of the best quality and is ethically sourced. With this being such an important topic in the coffee scene, the majority of NZ Roasters hold these values.
We use courier satchels from Better Packaging Co which are made from cornstarch! You can chuck these in with your food scraps and deposit it into your home compost or a worm farm if you’re so inclined! Normally when a product says ‘compostable’ it doesn’t mean you can put it in your home compost, as domestic compost heaps won’t generate enough heat to break the material down. With ours, you can.
All of our printed material is printed locally in Auckland and done using the most eco friendly methods.
Our tissue paper is from NoIssue and printed with soy-ink made from soy-beans, unlike the usual petroleum-based ink. Their tissue is also acid-free and FSC certified. Noissue also go the extra mile by running an eco-packaging program alongside businesses who use their products, where they plant a tree for every order made!
Whereever, whenever possible, reuse, recycle.
