Packaging & operations
We recycle our green material and separate organic matter. We limit landfill where we can. We also only use eco-friendly cleaning products in our roastery. We have also appointed our first in-house Sustainability Officer so we can keep getting better in this area.
Roasting produces a by-product called chaff (like a peanut skin). This waste along with coffee grinds are collected and used as fertiliser. As it’s high in nitrogen and good for the soil and plants.
Futhermore we donate our coffee sacks to a community based centre called ReCreate (recreate.ie). It really is important to us to be socially responsible.
Disposables & packaging
Where possible our takeaway cups and lids are produced in Ireland and are 100% compostable. Made from plants and not oils. Produced in Cork by Down 2 Earth. In 2018 at the World of Coffee trade show in Amsterdam we won an award for our recyclable & carbon neutral retail packaging. We promote the use of reusable cups in our cafe and have our own branded MiiR & KeepCups.
