3 Ways To Be More Eco Friendly

December 01, 2020

Is your resolution for 2021 to become more eco-conscious? If so, there are several small steps you can take every day that will help you reduce waste. Here are a few ways simple ways that you can become more eco-friendly this year! 

Use Reusable Coffee Cups

Did you know that 16 billion disposable coffee cups are used each year? If you're an avid coffee drinker and like to pick up your daily cup of coffee on your way to work, you'll use hundreds of coffee cups throughout the year. To make your daily cup of coffee a little more eco-friendly, we recommend picking up a reusable mug or cup to bring with you each day when you pick up your cup of coffee from Growers Alliance. If you prefer cold drinks like our iced coffee, teas, or smoothies, don't forget to buy some reusable straws too!

Buy in Bulk

Whether it's coffee, rice, beans, or any other consumable item, we always look for the opportunity to buy it in bulk. Although not everyone has access to unpackaged bulk foods, buying larger quantities will cut down on the amount of packaging that you dispose of throughout the year. For example, we offer 5lb bags of our popular coffee blends for those who frequently brew Growers Alliance coffee at home. 

Paper and Plastic Bag Alternatives

Approximately only 1-3% of plastic bags are recycled every year. No matter if you do your shopping at the grocery store or a farmers market, you are sure to acquire a collection of plastic bags over time. One easy way to reduce waste is to bring reusable bags and baskets when you pick up groceries. Our fairtrade, handwoven baskets are strong and durable, making them a great alternative to paper or plastic bags.
