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. She started slowly transitioning to a zero waste lifestyle and now tries her 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.
Stay tuned for a monthly newsletter featuring ideas and strategies for living a life of less waste.
Providing reusable options like cutlery, straws, cups, and to go tins.
Most to-go tins for food and coffee beans you can 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 bandanas to buy and to continue using!
We offer ideas for other waste reducing practices, 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.
