For many of us, when we think of coffee, we think of our morning ritual or afternoon pick-me-up. We sometimes forget about where it comes from or the fact that it is an agricultural product that is severely affected by the impact of climate change.
As Earth Day approaches, we have been reflecting on how we can be better for our planet, for our community and for our love of coffee.
[Enter the Clean team]
We have teamed up with our friends at Clean Foundation for April’s Community Cups roast. Clean helps the communities in which they work make real progress toward a cleaner future by taking on climate change challenges. They bring specialized teams together to work on complex problems, delivering clean projects and programming for communities.
Clean’s Education and Engagement team strives to inspire environmental change through their outreach, engagement and education opportunities. From superhero puppets to home efficiency, and from watershed action projects to workplace lunch and learns, there’s something for everyone to participate in!
This month’s Community Cups will directly support the Clean Foundation’s Climate Action Grants initiative. It offers youth an opportunity to develop, create and execute climate action projects that will create positive environmental impacts within their schools or communities. These grants of up to $500 can be used to turn an environmental project idea into a reality!
The Clean Foundation is here to make the biggest impact for a cleaner world! Support them by purchasing a bag of BREWTIFUL FUTURE and stopping into the café on April 22nd for Community Cups Day.
