Do you want to be part of the solution? World Environment Day is a global day of action on 5th June 2021. The campaign was launched by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 with the aim to promote environmental awareness and protection around the world.
This year, organisers are asking us all to take small steps for our planet - whether it’s picking up litter or planting trees.
At Owens Coffee we take it into our stride in providing a greener future and doing everything we can to support this. We have developed many environmentally friendly ways of adapting our business, for example ensuring that all of our coffee range is Fairtrade and 100% organic.
Farming in full sunlight has become the fastest, cheapest way to meet the growing needs of the coffee market. However, this demand has increasingly led to destruction of shade-producing plants such as trees. Organic farming practices in comparison encourage shade-grown coffee wherever possible plus organic farming is chemical free with no synthetic fertilizers or chemicals used.
The roasting and selling of organic coffees helps protect these vital resources by encouraging farmers to use organic coffee farming methods and avoid deforestation.

Owens Coffee has been committed to improving sustainability since 2010. As well as using organic, Fairtrade coffee beans, this also includes our packaging, waste disposal and even includes the investment we have made into our purpose-built Roastery facility and high-tech, low-emission roasting equipment.
