Going Green

Reducing Waste and Emissions


WINNER OF THE SUMMIT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ENVIRONMENTAL CHAMPION 2016!


Energy Efficiency- transition from T12 ballasts to T8, transition from incandescent to CFL bulbs, transition from Halogen to LED bulbs. We can proudly say we use ZERO therms of gas to heat our shop.


Zero Waste-We are a zero waste coffee shop.  All of our cups, lids, etc. are made of plant materials from Eco Products in Boulder and will be composted at the Summit County Resource Allocation Park.  Plastic, glass, aluminum, and cardboard products are recycled by Waste Management Single Stream Recycling. It is estimated that we have diverted over 750,000 cups and lids from the landfill!


Sourcing- Over 80% of our products come from an 80 mile radius. We also ask our suppliers that ship to us to ship using recyclable materials. Education- Help train other restaurants in becoming zero waste and energy efficient.
