Beach Clean Up

The Problem:

Plastic!

The problem is plastic. Plastic bags, plastic packaging, plastic bottles, etc.

The Fix:

Your help!

By being aware of what products you are using and how you dispose of them, you can help us help our planet!  Don’t litter, don’t leave things behind. Recycle, compost, use reusable bottles and bags, and reduce your use of plastic. And in the morning, when you need your caffeine kick, use our compostable OneCups. Not only are they fully compostable in a commercial composting facility, but they are made with 100% Arabica Coffee and you can sip with ease, knowing you are not contributing to the plastic epidemic.

What we have done:

Last week our CEO visited some of our farms in Mexico and on his way back to the states, stopped by the beach for a day of relaxation and what he saw was incredibly saddening. So, not being a company to stay idle, we got to work. The next day we called our incredible farmers and their families and we shifted into gear to continue to help our Earth. Starting down in Tapachula, Mexico; we took just one day to clean up the beach! In such short notice, we were able to gather 40 volunteers to help us make a difference. By the end of the day, the volunteers were talking about how excited they were to continue clean up the earth even after the day was over.

In the before photos, you can see how much garbage was left on the beach, or even dumped in the ocean.  In the after photos, you can see how much of a difference taking part of one day to pick up garbage can make.

So, help us, help our planet and make a difference. Your choice in Coffee Pods could be the important decision of your day.

Commit to the Earth. Commit to Compostable. Commit to SF Bay Coffee OneCups.

Our 40 volunteers, including our farmers and their families.

Scary Statistics:

  • 60-80% of marine debris is made up of plastic
  • The world produces more than 300 million tons of plastic each year and only 10% of it is recycled
  • About 7 million tons end up in the oceans each year.
  • More than 260 species have ingested or been entangled by plastic debris
