We know. You’ve heard it before. “You can make a difference,” “Help us change the World,” “Our brand cares,”... etc.Here’s the thing: When we do something at Scooter’s Coffee, we don’t go halfway. We’re committed to change.
That’s why we have joined forces with the Arbor Day Foundation and now source 100% shade-grown coffee. With each cup that you drink,
you help preserve 2 square feet of rainforests, which are the home to many plant and animal species vital to our existence! In addition,
you're helping to ensure fair wages and access to education for farm families in all of the countries where we source coffee.
Switching to shade-grown coffee was no small task – we set this in motion more than a year ago! Why did we do it? Well, to put it simply,
it’s the right thing to do!
We inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees.
This is the mission statement of the Arbor Day Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit conservation and education organization: Founded in 1972,
the centennial of the first Arbor Day observance in the 19th century, the Foundation has grown to become the largest nonprofit membership
organization dedicated to planting trees, with over one million members, supporters, and valued partners. The impact the Foundation makes
on our world is accomplished through its conservation and education programs.
Every morning when you grab that cup of coffee, you're making a choice. We want to empower you as a customer to make the RIGHT choice.
Because, the only thing that feels better than the first sip of Scooter's Coffee is the feeling that with each sip, you're making a difference.
When you drink Scooter's Coffee, you're changing lives. It's that simple. Each cup you drink preserves 2 square feet of rainforest. Thus
conserving vital habitat for countless plant and animal species. Every time the Arbor Day Foundation sources our 100% shade-grown coffee, they are
providing farmers in several countries with a fair wage to improve education, infrastructure and healthcare. So, ultimately that cup you're
drinking starts a "chain of good," and our goal is to replicate that "chain of good" around the world!
Our coffee is organically grown under the canopy of the rain forest in Latin America. Each delicious cup you drink provides growers with a
fair wage, improves local infrastructure and increases access to healthcare and education. As coffee farmer Artemia said, “It gives us a
better product, a more special grain.” Watch on to see the full impact of shade-grown coffee.
