Coffee House Celebrates Earth DayApril 14, 2015 (Published: April 14, 2015)
On Earth Day, our Crimson Cup Coffee House is giving away burlap coffee sacks and offering $5 refills of cold-brew coffee growlers – a 50 percent discount off the regular $9.95 price.
While supplies last, you are welcome to pick up coffee sacks between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22 at 4541 N High St. in Clintonville. No purchase is necessary.
A 32-ounce glass growler jug filled with our cold-brewed Armando’s Blend coffee sells for $11.95, including the jug. It normally costs $9.95 to trade an empty growler for a full one, but on Earth Day the prices is only $5. Coffee can be stored in the refrigerator to create the perfect iced coffee at home.
Burlap coffee bags have literally thousands of uses. In the garden, use them as a biodegradable weed barrier, a container for growing herbs or potatoes or a covering to protect tender young plants from the cold.
Burlap also is an increasingly popular craft fabric. Some coffee bags carry bright printed logos that look great as pillows, wall hangings, curtains and even clothing. Stop in early for the best selection.
Each burlap coffee sack is approximately 28 inches wide by 36 inches tall and may retain the scent of the green coffee beans it once held. Burlap is a coarse woven fabric made primarily of natural fibers.
Biodegradable Single Serve Coffee Capsules are always available at the coffee house. These recyclable single-serve coffee capsules (also known as pods or K-cups) are designed to work with major single-serve home-brewing systems and come packaged in a biodegradable bag. A package of 10 capsules sells for $9.95.
Sustainable sourcing of our coffee and tea and giving back are two of our core values, so we are excited to do our part to encourage recycling!
