The Powerful Second Life for Coffee Bean Burlap Sacks
Sustainability is at the core of everything S&D Coffee & Tea does. When the Concord-based company had a large quantity of empty coffee bean burlap sacks to get rid of, they opted for a more sustainable solution to keep them out of the landfill.
The Elma C. Lomax Research and Education Farm in Concord was one of three organizations to receive a large donation of burlap sacks from S&D. In addition to receiving spent coffee grounds from S&D's extract facilities (for improving soil and compost quality), the farm is using the burlap coffee sacks to help prevent soil and erosion.
