Comment avoir un cafe eco responsable au sein de son entreprise

If you recycle and go green at home, you are also green at work. Small gestures help make those around you a little greener. We are increasingly aware that we must preserve the environment for a better future.

Any action, no matter how small, such as recycling, reducing plastic consumption, getting around town by bicycle or public transport rather than by car, is welcome. These actions help us achieve a sustainable future, not only for ourselves but also for all generations to come.

It is with this premise that companies that care about the environment work. What can you do to make your coffee meet the big goal of taking care of the environment? In this article, we give you some tips on how to achieve this.

Espresso machines that save energy

We all know that espresso machines can use a lot of energy. That is why energy-saving machines are the best choice. So before investing in a commercial coffee machine, research and find out which ones are designed to be more energy-efficient and sustainable.

Buy locally

By purchasing your coffee from a local roaster and your milk from local farms, you are not only supporting your local economy, but you are also reducing your product’s carbon footprint. This goes for all your consumables. It is therefore extremely important to avoid shipping them by cargo plane. As you know, planes emit a significant amount of CO2, which is harmful to the environment. Where you get your coffee and where you get your milk are two of the most important decisions you can make for your business. They can also be the most eco-responsible choices you can make.

Use plant-based and 100% recyclable packaging

It is increasingly common to find products protected by 100% recyclable packaging that closes the waste cycle when the product has been consumed. You can identify these packages because they are specified with an eco-certification label. You can also make 100% recyclable take-out coffee packaging with biodegradable cardboard and lid.

Fair Trade

Each country has its own certified standard, but fair trade is more than just certification. It is a market-based system that aims to benefit the farmer who, in exchange for his product, receives a fair price. This way of doing things is not limited to offering a decent wage and a better working environment to agricultural workers, it is also a way of promoting responsible coffee production and being more respectful of the environment. By avoiding the mass-production market, you can avoid a system that has been and continues to be terribly harmful to the environment and which is one of the main culprits of global warming.
