There are so many ways to live a conscious lifestyle nowadays. The best thing is that you don’t even need to change your habit including your COFFEE! Just a SIMPLE effect will make a BIG difference.
REGROUND is an organization based in Melbourne with the mission to take your coffee waste, and give it one more purpose after fuelling your morning habit
WHEN COFFEE CREATES HARM TO THE ENVIRONMENT…
AN ISSUE THAT WE RARELY HEAR ABOUT, LEFT UNAWARE.
In the City of Melbourne alone, the coffee industry is responsible for 5,500 tonnes of methane gas going into the atmosphere each year. That’s bad – but what’s worse is that methane gas is 20-40 times more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon pollution from cars.
Coffee waste as organic compost, it’s a solution.
Why do we throw tonnes and tonnes of coffee ground into the general bins? Is there a way to better use this organic material? How can we give value to the coffee industry, allowing the coffee industry to help the environment? These questions are the drive behind the birth of Reground. And the solution is very simple with a positive effect on the environment.
“Using the grounds from our morning coffee to grow our evening meal – that’s the dream. We want every gardener to have free access to the black gold to make Melbourne truly the most liveable city in the world.”
— Ninna, the founder of Reground
“How can we improve the coffee industry? Sustainability is an add-on that enhances the care, standard and quality, it can all be a part of the coffee experience. Through sharing and educating the industry, coffeehouses and roasters are supporting change, and a dialogue is starting to open up. We need to start seeing waste as a resource, it’s all about innovation.”
To date, REGROUND has saved over 26,000 tonnes of coffee waste from the landfill. Find out more information on reground.com.au
