In 2019 we have replaced 1.6 million plastic straws with recyclable paper straws, saving 6 tonnes of plastic.
We have partnered with OneTreePlanted to replace more trees than are used in making paper straws and we plant one more tree for every 5,000 straws produced. In 2019 since switching supplier we will have planted over 500 trees. The plastic window in our single doughnut bags has also been removed. As a result in 2019 we removed 11 tonnes of single-use plastic from across the business.
Our Coffee is ethically sourced and Rainforest Alliance Certified, which means we meet rigorous environmental and social standards. We only buy top quality beans and pay a fair price for them, purchasing all of our coffees at more than Fairtrade base price. Much of the coffee is purchased directly from the farm cooperatives using the expertise of our coffee roaster.
