CHOICES TODAY FOR A BETTER TOMRROW
Every decision we make as a business impacts our community and our planet, so we don't take decisions lightly. At Arrowroot Coffee Co, we take several steps to offset our environmental impact, and we are always seeking new ways to be environmentally friendly.
Oat Milk as the default — All of our lattes come default with oat milk unless dairy is specified. Why? First, because it's delicious! (Don't believe us? Try it for yourself!) But even more importantly, oat milk is a great environmentally-friendly alternative to cow's milk. Compared to dairy production, oat milk production uses 1/10th of the land and treats 60% less carbon emissions.
Electric Roasting — We roast our coffee on a fully electric roaster to reduce fossil fuel consumption. Roasting on a fully electric roaster can reduce carbon emissions by up to 87%. We believe electric roasting is the future of coffee and have some exciting plans in the works to make our roasting even more sustainable. Stay tuned!
Compostable Packaging — Our coffee bags feature a unique plant-based lining instead of the traditional plastic lining. Plant-based packaging is important because we can continue to grow and harvest the necessary materials, rather than consuming finite fossil fuels that increase carbon emissions. As a bonus, after you've finished the bag of coffee, the plant-based packaging breaks down faster than traditional plastic. For detailed info about our bags check out this info on biotre.
