Bootlegger Coffee Company is one of the first restaurants to be fully Ocean Pledge Certified. In order to receive the certification, Bootlegger adheres to a strict set of guidelines regarding single-use plastic usage in our stores.
100% of our coffee is Rainforest Alliance (RFA) certified. On Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms, coffee grows in harmony with nature: soil is healthy, waterways are protected, trash is reduced or recycled, wildlife thrives and migratory bird habitats flourish. In addition, many RFA Certified™ farms adopt climate-smart agriculture techniques that sequester carbon.
Bootlegger take away coffee cups are made from paper and are 100% biodegradable and compostable. All of our cups are sourced locally. The inside liner of our take-away cups are made from corn starch, and thus 100% plant-based. Our lids are made from recycled plastic. In August 2016, we introduced a branded dash cup to promote and incentivise the use of reusable mugs.
