A COMMITMENT TO THE PLANET

  • Our practices continue to grow, as we learn how to best manage our subscription-based company. 

  • We have visions in 2021 to provide you access to composting systems as we know the majority of the public does not have access to them. 

  • We have visions of having a similar model of planting 1 tree per purchase, but instead helping a family/ or community plant organic coffee trees in their region. 

OUR CONSCIOUS GUIDE

How to reduce, reuse, and recycle all items in your monthly subscription package.

Reuse
  1. Your Compostable Packaging your coffee is shipping in: 

  • don't throw it out right away! Reuse it 2-5 times within the month. Fold it up and keep it in your bag.

  • put a gift in it and share it with a friend

  • have some contents rolling around in your bag/ car/ house? throw them into this bag!

Compost

2. Your coffee bag is compostable! Just make sure to cut out the valve & tear off the tin tie (those go in the trash).

3. The coffee label is made out of wildflower seed paper. You read that right! Follow instructions on label to plan your seeds.

4. Sticker on bag you can leave on as it is also compostable.

SUPPLY LIST

  • a pot for planting

  • some good potting soil

  • plantable coffee label

  • water

  • a sunny corner

STEP 1 - PREPARE YOUR POT

Fill your pot 2/3 full with good potting soil. Tamp down the soil and add more if necessary. You want the pot to be firmly full, but not packed. The paper can be planted indoors or outside, so you get to choose according to the temperature and conditions at the time of planting (we don't recommend planting outside if it's blizzarding or desert-hot!).

STEP 2 - PLANT THE PAPER

Take your plantable paper and cover the soil in the prepared pot with the paper. It's okay if the paper overlaps. Spread a 1/8 inch layer of soil over the plantable paper pieces and tamp down gently.

STEP 3 - WATER DURING GERMINATION

After planting the paper in your pot, give it a good soak. You want the paper and the soil to be nicely damp but not swimming in water. During the first 10 days, keep the paper moist at all times. The water is necessary for germination.

STEP 4 - CARE AFTER GERMINATION

Once sprouts appear, continue to keep the paper moist but be careful not to overwater. Once sturdy plants appear, water as needed. Here's what the pot looks like after planting a greeting card:

STEP 5 - ENJOY THE FLOWERS

Once the flowers (or herbs or vegetables) start to blossom, enjoy them in the pot or cut them and place in a decorative vase
