Sustainability at Coffee Fest

SUstainability at Coffee Fest
Doing Our Part to Make a Difference

You'll now find Rinse Stations for reuseable drinkware at all Coffee Fest events.




In an effort to reduce waste and become more socially responsible with waste at our events, we are excited to launch a new Sustainability program beginning at Coffee Fest PNW. Our sustainability sponsors Bargreen Ellingston & Miir have partnered with us to create an on-site program aimed to reduce waste at Coffee Fest events. Bargreen Ellingson has constructed several Rinse Stations for your convenience and these stations will be placed throughout the event for you to rinse out reuseable drinkware used in tastings & cuppings around the hall. MiiR has provided reusable cups for each Coffee Fest PNW attendee. 

"We are excited to help trade shows become more sustainable by offering premium MiiR drinkware to attendees. Sampling at shows has an incredibly high waste stream and we are delighted to help fight against the single use epidemic."
- Bryan Pape, Miir Founder & CEO

"Reducing single use plastic isn't an easy task in a world where we are constantly on the go and society says grab it quick and run to your next scheduled box that lives on your digital or old world paper calendar...but making a conscious choice, individually, will move the needle toward making better, responsible decisions. Bargreen Ellingson is proud to be one of the sustainability partners of this Coffee Fest event in Tacoma this November. By providing cup rinsing stations around the event, we will eliminate 6,000+ single use cups each day the event is open. By providing these rinsing stations, we are giving all of you a choice; a choice to be part of the solution and help to re-use what we already have-while protecting what we don't want to further degrade.  Choose to rinse your reusable cup and enjoy another beverage and remember the choice you just made was a choice for incremental change in all of our behaviors."
-Tim Iery, Bargreen Ellingson Vice President of Sales & Marketing

Simply pick up your vessel at the Sustainability Station at the entrance to the event and #drinkrinserepeat.

The thing I found most enjoyable at the Successful Coffeehouse Business Seminar was hearing from different people who have been there and done that. The information was practical and the hand-out material was great.
