As the owner of a neighborhood coffee shop, you have a lot of responsibilities, and a certain image you want to project to your local community. Many coffee shop owners are realizing the many benefits of keeping their products and supplies as environmentally friendly as possible. From using recycled paper products to providing reusable utensils, plates, and cups, there are many small steps you can take to make your coffee shop environmentally friendly!
Recycled and Recyclable Paper Products
As a coffee shop, one of your largest budget items is undoubtedly paper products. This is in large part because most guests prefer to take their java on the go, and paper cups allow them to do that. Along those same lines, there are the paper sleeves that slide onto the outside of the cups so that your guests don’t get burned by the hot beverages. You will also need lots of napkins, because accidents happen. Finally, paper towels and toilet tissue are essential for every business. At H.C. Walterhoefer, we understand your commitment to keeping your coffee shop as environmentally friendly as possible. We offer many different paper products made from more sustainable, recycled materials.
When you get your coffee beans and dairy products from local merchants, you’re supporting your local community AND drastically reducing your coffee shop’s carbon footprint. Those massive shipping plants emit significant amounts of CO2, which causes pollution. And by using local dairy, you often get higher-quality products that taste better as well!
Provide Glasses for Drinking Water
A coffee shop is a great place for professionals to sit and get some work done. It’s also great for sitting and having a conversation with some friends. Instead of selling bottled water or even giving out disposable cups of water, provide a pitcher of water and some glasses for your guests. It’s a sustainable, environmentally friendly way to make sure guests feel welcome and stay hydrated!
