This post was sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation. All opinions my own.
It’s almost the end of the year, so I’ve been reflecting a lot on whether I’ve met my two 2018 New Year’s Resolutions: to shop sustainably all year, and to read 12 books—one per month. Regarding my reading goal: on paper, it looks like I failed, clocking only 8.5 books so far. But two of them were over 1,000 pages, so I’m pretty sure it all adds up to 12.
On the other hand, my sustainable shopping goal? Knocked it out of the park. I’ve successfully shopped sustainably for clothes, shoes, and housewares all year long. I’ve even had the opportunity to work with several likeminded brands throughout the year, trying an array of Earth-friendly products from toilet paper to clothing. Most recently, I tried out sustainable coffee from the Arbor Day Foundation. (Enter the giveaway down below to win some!)
The mission of the Arbor Day Foundation is to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees, and their line of coffees does just that. Arbor Day coffee beans are grown slowly and in harmony with the rainforest, benefiting from natural shade protection and nutritious soil. Not only do rainforests provide the perfect environment for coffee to grow, but planting coffee there actually preserves forests, unlike the traditional clear-cutting method that eventually renders the land infertile.
In addition, the Arbor Day Foundation helps farmers implement more responsible coffee production practices and earn a better wage. And of course, their coffee tastes delicious.
A great way to get familiar with Arbor Day Coffee is to join their Coffee Club. After you sign up, you’ll receive a 12 oz. bag of ground coffee and a ceramic travel mug like the one I have above. In your next shipment, you’ll get two 12 oz. bags of coffee. You can choose to receive your Coffee Club shipments every four, six, or eight weeks, so no worries if it takes you a while to go through your coffee. And if you’re caffeine-sensitive, you can request that your coffees be decaf for only 50 cents extra.
A Coffee Club membership would make the perfect gift for the coffee-lover or Earth-lover in your life! There’s still plenty of time to sign up before the gift-giving holidays begin…
As you can see, drinking Arbor Day Coffee in the morning is just another small way to contribute to my 2018 sustainability goal. Wanna join me?
