Environmental Stewardship

The Muskoka Roastery environmental program has 2 main focus areas.

Our goal is to reduce our waste each year in pursuit of our 0% target. The programs in place include:

  • jute bags donated to local Habitat for Humanity Restore centres
  • skids re-used for outgoing shipments
  • coffee chaff (from roasting) and coffee grounds (from brewing) used as compost by local organic farms
  • all plastics recycled
  • all paper products purchased by the Muskoka Roastery Coffee Company are FSC certified and are recycled after use

Our waste for landfill has plateaued at around 100 kg per year. Not a huge volume, but still more than zero, so our work is not done!

To read more about our program, check out the Blog that describes in detail how we tackled this challenge.

We are pretty excited by the outcome!
