World Environment Day

To co-incide with World Environment Day on 5th June, Bean Drinking (an environmentally aware coffee retailer in Sydney and winner of the 2007 Village Green Sustainable Cities Environmental Reduction Award) is supporting The Rainforest Alliance by launching a new range of coffee using Rainforest Alliance Certified beans.

Most consumers understand the value of Fairtrade products, but there is actually certified coffee available which offers a more ‘holistic’ approach.

Coffee certified by The Rainforest Alliance combines good environmental practice, with good social practice and ensures that not only are farmers and their workers looked after, but that environment is preserved and protected too.
