Calling all earthlings to Earth Day 2021

April 22nd: one day when the planet will be priority. We know you care for the planet every day (we do too), but Earth Day is one day when our climate emergency will definitely be put first. Millions of people worldwide will work together to raise awareness and reduce their carbon footprint. This year, it’s all about getting back to normal sustainably; post-pandemic, we can’t lose our focus on eco-friendly living.

Most people do their bit for the planet. Whether you are committed to recycling and switching off the lights or decide to take it a step further with plastic-free living and solar energy, we’re all taking steps to live more sustainably.

Looking for another green tweak? How about climate positive coffee? Here at Two Chimps, we roast and package our coffee with care to make sure it has minimal impact on the environment. We’re keen beans when it comes to being green. Let us tell you a bit more…

Carbon neutral coffee that tastes awesome? You bet!

In 2021, we became a carbon neutral* roastery. This means that we remove more carbon emissions from the atmosphere than we emit. It means we’re not just green, but bright, dazzling green with flashing lights!  Simply buying from a climate positive company like Two Chimps is an easy way to cut your carbon footprint. We do most of the hard work – all you have to do is enjoy great, eco-friendly coffee that’s entirely guilt-free!

If you’re wondering how we fuel our coffee roaster and stay carbon neutral, we can assure you that we haven’t got the team peddling like mad to generate power. We know that we can’t roast without using some energy, so we’ll always have a carbon footprint. With the help of Ecologi, however, we found a very clever solution…

*Carbon neutral and climate positive mean exactly the same. We’re not sure why there are two ways of saying the same thing. We guess it’s just too good for one name!

 

Who are Ecologi?

Ecologi support the world’s most effective climate solutions to help people like you and me slash our carbon footprint. Planting trees and aiding reforestation is the best way to offset our carbon emissions, but we can’t pick up the shovel ourselves (we would if we could). So, we donate to the hard-working people at Ecologi instead. Ecologi’s team leaders then go out to countries like Papua New Guinea, Brazil and Honduras and help locals restore their forests. Ecologi also supports some great planet-friendly projects too, including Project Earth, which works with landowners right here in the UK!

When you choose Two Chimps Coffee, you know that you are making a real difference to real projects. With Ecologi, we’ve been able to support project leaders working to restore the forests in Madagascar, for instance. We’ve also planted lots of trees: 1,634 at the last count! This means we’ve offset (drum roll please…) 10.58 tones of carbon dioxide! ? Why not celebrate Earth Day by planting a tree with us? It’s simple: for every new customer who joins our troop, we plant a tree. When a new wholesale customer comes aboard, we plant 100! It’s the easiest way to a visible difference.

Re- Re- Recycle

We know we can’t solve the problem with one solution and that we need to tackle the climate crisis from all angles. That’s why we’re making every change we can to keep our sustainable standards tip-top. All our coffee and tea packaging is fully recyclable, right down to the stickers we use to mark our roast dates (most stickers aren’t bio-degradable). We’ll soon be saying goodbye to metal clips, too, and saying hello to recyclable glue dots instead.

We’re also pretty pernickety when it comes to our roastery. Installing divided LED lighting means that we only turn the lights on in the area where we are working. We use the backs of our used sticker sheets to print roast logs and scribble down all our great ideas. What else? We reuse absolutely everything we can! From cardboard boxes to coffee chaff, nothing goes in the bin if we can help it (our coffee chaff is used for chicken bedding, in case you were wondering)!
