Almost a decade ago Kara started reading about ways to live a lifestyle that produces less waste. She started by taking on a challenge to buy nothing new for a year. She learned the hard way that it is important to take baby steps to change your entire lifestyle. After slowly transitioning to a zero waste lifestyle and she and Mackenzie try their best to live a life of producing less waste.
We are excited to implement some of those ideas at Vertex Coffee Roasters while providing opportunities for the community to participate.

Providing reusable options like cutlery, straws, cups, and to go tins.
We sell retail coffee beans by the ounce! We offer tins and jars for the beans. Pick your container and the kind of beans you would like to purchase. You pay a deposit and return the container at a later date or you can keep the tin for the deposit price!
No paper towels or napkins- we have cloth roll towels and cloth napkins for you to use in house or handkerchiefs to buy and to continue using!
Some other ideas to produce less waste: like using a menstrual cup and reusable pads instead of tampons and disposable pads, carry a water bottle, carry a reusable food container for leftovers at a restaurant.
