Zavida Coffee Company is more than just a coffee company; we care about much more than profit. Aside from producing delicious organic coffee and offering unparalleled customer service, Zavida Coffee does its part to ensure the beauties and benefits of nature are around for years to come. Their commitment to the environment is guaranteed and certified.
Rainforest Alliance Initiative
Since 2006, Zavida Coffee has been working primarily with Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee farms. Rainforest Alliance Certified farms are known for using "environmentally and socially responsible practices."
Coffee farmers are trained in techniques that improve both efficiency and the health of the land utilized and are guaranteed respect, education, and healthcare for both themselves and their families. Agrochemical use is limited and "forests are protected, rivers, soils and wildlife conserved."
Look for a seal with a green frog on it that reads "Rainforest Alliance Certified" if you're looking to do your part by purchasing products held to these standards.
Tree Planting Initiative
It's not uncommon to plant a tree on Earth Day, but Zavida Coffee plants trees each and every day of the year. Every time Zavida sells any product on www.zavida.com or sells ten cups of any beverage at our downtown Toronto cafe, we plant a tree to celebrate the sale.
By partnering with Trees For The Future in their Tree Planting Initiative, Zavida "offset[s] all of [its] carbon emissions on an annual basis." Not only do the trees planted help the environment, but Trees For The Future plants in developing nations, "enabling them to restore their environment, grow more food, and build a sustainable future." They provide both resources and training to farmers to stimulate the local economy and promote tree planting in all sorts of environments.
This Earth Day, join Zavida in sustaining the environment by planting a tree, recycling, taking a short shower, or purchasing Zavida Coffee! If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
