We made a pact before starting that we would actively confront any environmental impact caused by the sourcing, production and consumption of Milk Shed products. It's central to every relationship we make and part of our wider plans to become B Corp Certified.
We donate 1% of all sales
As much as we love to roast coffee we don’t want to harm the planet while we do it and that’s why we signed up for 1% for the planet. Globally, only 3% of philanthropic giving goes to environmental causes and that’s why 1% for the planet was established. It aims to encourage businesses like ours to donate a minimum of 1% of their gross sales to help environmental non-profits.
Coffee farmers come first
We work with Raw Material, a social enterprise that imports coffee into the UK. 100% of their profit goes to coffee producers. They work with a growing network of smallholder farmers, alongside dedicated global coffee buyers to facilitate trade at stable, sustainable prices while improving coffee quality, yields, and community outcomes.
Our packaging is certified CO2-neutral
Our coffee packaging partner Dutch Coffee Pack were the very first to change to aluminium-free bags and to introduce 100% plastic bags feeling like paper, while keeping your coffee as fresh as ever. Every bag we use to deliver coffee is certified CO2-neutral.
