Did you know there are over 50 green certified coffee shops in the state, and less than five in the County of Santa Cruz? As the coffee shop boom continues, let’s encourage our neighborhood coffee shops to become green certified.
Here are some quick and easy tips for coffee shops (and tea!) looking to make the switch:
- Start with great coffee that people will feel great about drinking. Shade grown, fair trade, organic.
- Encourage customers to bring their own mugs and offer reusable ones at every location.
- Switch to LED lighting.
