Vail Mountain Coffee & Tea Co. is thrilled to announce the introduction of our brand new 12 oz and 5 lbs bags! Creating a more environmentally friendly world, with a focus on the mitigation of our carbon footprint, is top priority for everyone at VMCT... roasting incredibly fresh beans is quite high on that list too! After searching for a bag producer, we found a U.S. based company, Savor Brands, who clearly saw what our needs were and met them in a stellar way. Not only have we created a 100% recyclable package that is eye- catching and beautiful, but one that will retain the freshness of the beans and the coffee supply chain.
For each empty bag that is collected, Vail Mtn Coffee & Tea Co. will send to Arqlite, a manufacturer who will recycle the plastic- based bags into a product called, Smart Gravel®, which will be utilized for building materials. The tin ties can also be recycled and sent to Bedford Industries, who will divert them into reusable materials. Nothing from our bags will go to waste! If you would like to be a part of helping create an eco-friendlier world, please follow the quick and easy steps below.
1. Once you have brewed all your coffee, make sure the bag is completely empty.
2. Mail the empty bag back to us to recycle, so we can collect them and send to Arqlite to be made into building materials.
