Earth Day Celebration at The Human Bean will be held on Friday, April 20th, this year. We celebrate Earth Day in April as well as all year long! In the past we have given away reusable shopping bags for Earth Day. These are always really popular with our customers and we love seeing people use them all year long! This year several locations will be giving away a plantable coffee sleeve that contains both basil and parsley seeds. We started doing an Earth Day Giveaway each year in 2011.
How the Human Bean Celebrates Earth Day Every Day
The Human Bean tries to extend their earth friendly practices globally as well as through their Farm Friendly Direct program. This is their direct-trade coffee sourcing program. They work directly with the farmers that grow their coffee. Therefore they can pay them at or above market prices. They also allocate additional funds for community projects such as: building water systems, school and community centers and facilitating earth friendly soil, water and farming practices.
