Every Drink Plants a Tree This Earth Day

On Saturday, April 22nd your drink has the power to change the future!

Every Earth Day, The Human Bean locations around the U.S. donate the equivalent of one tree for every drink purchased to Trees for the Future. This nonprofit plants trees to promote sustainable farming and biodiversity in our coffee growing regions around the world. 

We donate to their reforestation efforts every Earth Day with your help, totaling over 93,000 trees to date. Raise your cup to making this Earth Day giveback bigger than ever!

Help Our Planet Fight Hunger in Coffee Growing Communities

Last year, we gave $16,768 after our annual giveback day — the equivalent of tens of thousands of new trees. This makes The Human Bean an official Impact Planting Partner with Trees for the Future. 

“We are grateful for your company's support and commitment to a better future. It is only because of your support that we can continue our work to meet our mission.” - Trees for the Future

This partnership helps support the coffee-growing communities that provide quality beans for our roasters. In turn, that coffee also helps us raise money for local communities during our other giveback days throughout the year. It’s a win-win for growers, our customers, and everyone in The Human Bean family.

The Impact

Trees for the Future not only helps the environment — they also help fight hunger and poverty in the communities they serve. They’re teaching farmers about sustainable farming practices, giving them tools for growing and harvesting, and improving biodiversity for growing other crops, too. The result is more vibrant economies and flourishing food systems around the world. 

To date, Trees for the Future has planted over 250 million trees and restored over 60,000 acres of degraded farmland. Let’s help them continue to do even more!


Our Giveback Day
If you love coffee like we do, stopping by The Human Bean on Saturday, April 22nd is a terrific (and delicious) way to make a meaningful impact. When you visit, we’d love to hear about other ways you’re celebrating Earth Day! Whether you’re planting your own tree, volunteering for a clean-up day or attending a celebration, you’re sure to find the perfect drink to fuel your earth-friendly efforts.
