A few months ago, we started an in-house project called, “Grow a Tree in Your Cup”. Very simply, we offered organic, fair-trade, bird-friendly coffee (tea and hot chocolate) for a toonie. By changing a small, daily habit from a “franchise” option to a “conscious” option, we wanted to demonstrate that you don’t have to sacrifice too much to make an environmental difference. In fact, the options tasted so much better that the coffee truck now by-passes our facility!
