Doing our bit
How we are doing our bit to help save the planet.
The Atlantic Forest, also known as Mata Atlantica, once spanned 130 million hectares across Brazil. Now, this tropical rainforest ecosystem covers only about 12% of its original area and is home to more than half of the country’s population. Centuries of deforestation for timber, sugar cane, coffee, cattle ranching, and urban sprawl have contributed to its current state.
One Tree Planted and their partners in Brazil are working to reconnect the Morro do Diablo State Park and the Black Lion Tamarin Ecological station. This will be Brazil’s largest reforestation corridor and will create 60,000 ha of connected forest for endemic and endangered species and improve the livelihoods of 1,000 families. To maximize the impact of donations, our partner will plant over 100 native species.
At Two Dogs Coffee Roasting Company we endeavour to use recycled, recyclable,
compostable, or biodegradable products wherever possible, and definitely no single use plastics. We use 100% Recyclable cups for our takeaway drinks, or better still bring your own cup. Our coffee packaging is recyclable and our mailing bags fully compostable.
In our new shop Two Dogs Coffee & Tea Emporium at 104 The Struet, Brecon, LD3 7LT we purchase our beans from a single importer and roast on the premises, reducing our miles, and sell our coffees, not only packaged for you in 250g and 1 kilo recyclable bags, but we provide a 'fill your own container' service as well. We choose sustainable small batch coffees and specialise in coffees from women's cooperatives, small family farms and social enterprises. Because of this we are not able to guarantee we'll have the same coffees available consistently, but with 30 different beans there's plenty to choose from.
The shop also sells 20 different teas from UK Loose Leaf Teas also based in Brecon, by weight either into a paper bag or your own container.
