Cafédirect carried out a study to identify the environmental impact of its products; it might surprise you that the biggest impact doesn’t come from shipping or even growing. It’s in fact in the consumption and particularly in cafes and venues that serve coffee. It might be the electrical energy required by the espresso machines or the amount of water used to flush customer toilets.
As Cafédirect doesn’t own the outlets, this was an area they could not directly control, so instead they created an EcoToolkit which would help venues identify simple ways they can reduce their environmental impacts. The toolkit covers Water, Waste, Energy and Procurement. The water section gives advice and actions, many of which also help save the venue money. The recommendations range from suggestions such as fixing leaks to installing one of our above ground rainwater harvesting systems.
If you run a venue that serves hot drinks, see what more you can do to reduce your water consumption and help save money on water bills by taking advantage of our free feasibility survey.
We are also offering venues that use the EcoToolkit a 10% discount on a suitable rainwater harvesting system.
