How Your Coffee Habit Impacts the Environment

Whether you’re an avid coffee drinker or just enjoy a cup or two on occasion, chances are that you’ve never considered how your coffee habit might be impacting the environment. From growing and harvesting to packaging and shipping, coffee production has a significant environmental footprint. Let’s take a closer look at how our love of coffee is impacting the planet.

The Coffee Growing Process

Coffee plants, which grow in tropical climates, require vast amounts of land to produce the beans that we use to make our morning mochas. This land is often acquired by cutting down large swaths of rainforest—a practice that dramatically impacts local wildlife and contributes to climate change. Additionally, fertilizers used for crop maintenance can leach into local water supplies, leading to contamination and health issues for nearby communities.

Packaging & Shipping Coffee

Once the beans have been harvested and processed, they must then be packaged and shipped around the world. The packaging materials used—typically plastic bags or jars—play their own role in polluting our environment; not only do they generate waste, but they also require oil-based plastics like polyethylene terephthalate (PET) that cannot easily be recycled. Furthermore, transporting these packages around the world requires burning lots of fossil fuels which results in air pollution.

Coffee Waste

Finally, while many people are aware of how their food waste impacts the environment, fewer know that their coffee waste does too! Coffee grounds can't simply be thrown away since they contain high levels of nitrogen which can harm soil health if left untreated. If you're using ground coffee with your home machine or French press pot, consider composting it instead of throwing it away so it can be reused as fertilizer for plants instead!
