It’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but taking time to contemplate the importance of our exquisite planet is a beautiful thing – and definitely worth our time. Even better, turning thought into action on how to make the planet a better place is something we should all do, at least one day of the year.
Each year on April 22, we celebrate Earth Day. An international day to focus on the environment, turning positive thought into momentous action. A day to consider how our everyday activities impact the world around us and discover ways to limit our negative impacts while increasing our positive ones.
“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second-best time is now.” Darrell Putman
After performing a full analysis on our carbon emissions and environmental impact, it became clear that Zavida needed to do something to offset our effect on the environment around us. Small steps began to make a big difference.
Help Restore the Environment
We partnered up with Trees for the Future™ to plant trees in areas that need it most, restoring life to the environment. With our Buy One, Plant One initiative, we plant one tree with each product sold at Zavida.com. At our downtown Toronto café, we plant a tree with every 10 cups sold. Since 2011, we have planted over 300,000 trees (and growing!).
Start with the Source
Over 70% of our green coffee is sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms. And over 40% of all our coffee comes from organic farms.
We are proud to use only 100% recycled corrugate that is 100% recyclable for all of our shipping packages.
This is still not enough – we can all do more, and we can all do better. Our next goal is to plant 1 million trees around the world for us and for future generations. Let us celebrate our wonderful earth together and make a difference for tomorrow.
Happy Earth Day!
