At Bright Jenny Coffee, we do our best to run a sustainable business. Here are some ways we are doing this, and some things we are working towards, we are not perfect, but we try our best and are constantly evolving.
IN OUR CAFE
When you order a drink at Bright Jenny, we automatically assume it is for here unless you specify. If you are staying in the cafe to enjoy your drink, we insist on you using a ceramic mug. If you're not done your drink by the time you leave, we happily transfer it into a to go cup.
Anything served 'to-go' is in compostable cups and lids or containers. Our cups are made of 100% renewable sources. Where possible we've moved away from using plastic across all operations.
We use HAY! Straws® which are 100% biodegradable, gluten free, all natural straws made from hay! Cool hay? (Im a dad of 2 young boys sorry)
10% discount on drinks for any of the following
- bring in your own mug
- ride a bike in or walk to the cafe
The cafe is lit by mostly sunlight in the day through our massive garage doors and windows and skylights. What very little light we need from bulbs is all LED.
Our Roaster runs off of natural gas, unfortunately this is the only way to do it at this time, as we have not found a roaster that can produce good tasting results that runs any other way. Again, not perfect.
We are very proud to say that Bright Jenny Coffee bags are 100% compostable in commercial and home facilities.
We also offer discounted pricing on "fill your own container" any container will do, we charge by the ounce.
Our friends at SpaHillsCompost pick up our compost bins every week. We throw everything we can in there to reduce the amount of garbage we have going into the landfill. This includes the coffee chaff from the coffee roasting, all spent coffee grounds, cardboard and paper products, food waste ect.
We would love to start donating the chaff and coffee grounds consistently to a local farmer, is that you? Email us!
IN THE ROASTERY
Coffee chaff which is a waste product of the roasting, we would love to donate to local farms for mulch in hen houses or composted when there is excess. Again, if you or someone you know needs this, please, contact us!
