Sustainability at Zolo
Here at the Zolo family we care about our Mother Earth!
We source our coffee sustainably and ethically. In the coffee world this means working with small lot farmers, sustainable certifications, reducing our carbon footprint through biodegradable cups, sleeves, etc. We donate our coffee grounds to local farmers or compost them. At our Farmers' Markets, we encourage our customers to bring their own cup by offering a price discount for doing so.
We roast on low carbon footprint, highly energy efficient 35 kilo Loring roasters. These roasters are single burner convection, warm air recirculating design which utilize less natural gas inputs, thus resulting in less environmental impact.
As a large influencer over the coffee supply chain we know it is our duty be sustainability leaders. Farmers at the bottom of the value chain are getting squeezed by some of the lowest coffee prices in the last 25 years. We want to shift value in the global coffee supply chain to some of its most marginalized and underpaid people by purchasing coffee at a fair price always substaintially above the current commodity or C price.
Rainforest Alliance Certification
Zolo is a Rainforest Alliance Certified roaster. This certification means that not only is the environment protected but also the people who farm it. RFA works with sustainable farmers to improve their livelihoods and health of their communities. See their website for more info:
