Sustainability through Circularity

Coffee Grounds for Gardening

We are always striving and improving to ensure that Wake The Crew can be as sustainable as possible by integrating circularity. Sustainability is not just a one man show. It’s something that we can all do a part and give back to the environment.

Recyclable Glass Bottles

What we do:

At Wake The Crew, we use glass bottles for our coffee concentrates as they are easily recycled. Did you know that glass bottles can be recycled continuously and made into new glass products like bottles, jars etc?

They are also highly reusable as they are easier to clean and sterilise at high temperatures.

For our customers:

To recycle the bottles, please wash the bottles thoroughly before recycling.

Bottle Return System

What we do:

We have implemented a bottle return system whereby customers are able to return their empty glass bottles to us when they order from us again.

For our customers:

Let us know if you would like to return your empty glass bottles and we will arrange for our own in-house delivery team to collect it when your new bottles are delivered. Please rinse the bottles before returning! 

Reducing Waste

What we do:

Our used coffee grounds are not dumped into the trash! They are used as fertilisers for plants at community gardens and can also be used at home to neutralise odours in cars and rooms. Giving back to our Mother Earth who has so graciously allowed us to harvest coffee beans is just something small we can do!

Check out our blog post here on where our coffee grounds went!

Harvest from our coffee grounds

For our customers:

If you find that you are unable to finish the cold brew concentrates in 3 weeks, don’t just dump it down the drain! Freeze them into ice cubes so that you can make a dirty cold brew latte when you’re feeling it.
