Coffee cup

To say that Australians “enjoy a cup of coffee” would be an understatement. We guzzle over six billion cups of coffee every year. Manly roaster, Seven Miles are not only committed to roasting the best but being the best in sustainability. Seven Miles has partnered with Terracycle on Australia’s first free-to-use coffee recycling program. The program allows consumers to recycle used coffee bags and coffee pods, free of charge.  CEO of Seven Miles, Jenny Willits explains “everything we do is in the pursuit of exceptional coffee, and for us that includes the journey from bean to cup, and beyond. It is expected that the new sustainability initiatives at Seven Miles will reduce landfill levels by a whopping 16 tonnes over the next five years. The 7 Miles in the Right Direction initiatives include: 1/ A free recycling partnership with TerraCycle for coffee bags and capsules 2/ The use of RecycleMe™ cups which can actually be recycled (standard coffee cups can’t be). 3/ The installation of 264 solar panels on their Manly Vale roastery 4/ Collecting used coffee grinds and using them as fertiliser on local farms 5/ The coffee bean sacks are reused in animal enclosures at Taronga Zoo Jenny continues “We know our consumers want to make more sustainable choices, and our exciting new TerraCycle partnership means this can now include even the bags their coffee comes in!” You can purchase Seven Miles coffee online or visit them at their Manly Vale roastery, 75 Kenneth Rd, the espresso bar is open 7:30am – 11:30am, Monday to Friday.
