COLUMBUS, Ohio – To encourage recycling on Earth Day, Crimson Cup Coffee House will give away burlap coffee sacks and offer $5 refills of cold-brew coffee growlers – a 50 percent discount over the regular $9.95 price.
While supplies last, local residents are welcome to pick up coffee sacks between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Tuesday, April 22 at 4541 N High St. in Clintonville. No purchase is necessary.
“We want to do our part on Earth Day to encourage and reward recycling,” said Coffee House Manager Rebeka Reames. “Sustainable sourcing of our coffee and tea and giving back are two of our core values.”
A 32-ounce glass growler jug filled with Crimson Cup’s cold-brewed Armando’s Blend coffee sells for $11.95, including the jug. It normally costs $9.95 to trade an empty growler for a full one, but on Earth Day the prices is only $5. Coffee can be stored in the refrigerator to create the perfect iced coffee at home.
“Buying a refillable cold-brew growler allows you to enjoy delicious coffee right out of your refrigerator while conserving packaging and saving money compared to buying iced coffee by the cup,” Reames said.
Each burlap coffee sack is approximately 28 inches wide by 36 inches tall and may retain the scent of the coffee beans it once held. Burlap is a coarse woven fabric made primarily of natural fibers. “Burlap coffee bags have literally thousands of uses,” Reames said.
“In the garden, use them as a biodegradable weed barrier, a container for growing herbs or potatoes or a covering to protect tender young plants from the cold.”
She added that burlap is an increasingly popular craft fabric. “Some coffee bags carry bright printed logos that look great as pillows, wall hangings, curtains and even clothing. Stop in early for the best selection.”
The Coffee House also will feature Crimson Cup’s recyclable single-serve coffee capsules (also known as pods or K-cups). Designed to work with major single-serve home-brewing systems, the capsules of hand-roasted coffee are recyclable and come packaged in a biodegradable bag.
