Our sustainability promise
Our new and improved sustainability scheme has three simple, but very important, aspects that will be realised at the festival with your help!
We're working closely (and proudly) with KeepCup, our official reusable cup partner, to reduce waste at The London Coffee Festival. That's why we're rewarding all of our visitors to bring their reusable cups with exclusive perks, including fast-track access, cocktails, exclusive merch and many more.
KeepCup will also be providing 18 washing stations throughout the festival. These will be marked on the festival map, so you'll never be far away from one if you need to give your cup a quick rinse between drinks!
Wherever single-use packaging must be used, we're partnering with decent packaging to ensure it will be 100% plant-based and fully-compostable. That's your coffee and cocktail cups, plates, the lot.
This means that all packaging along can be disposed with organic waste & food scraps in the clearly marked LCF bins, before finding its way to compost. We’ll even have our friendly Bin Hosts on site to help – too easy.
And how will we make sure it’s composted? With the help of first mile, all of the collected waste from the festival will be taken to their composting facility where the compostable packaging and food waste will integrate into the organic waste system. It's then turned into nutrient rich fertiliser from the composting process!
We're also delighted to be partnering again with Nordic roasters Löfbergs, who will be collecting used coffee grounds throughout the festival, which they will then use to create a unique feature for the festival next year. Löfbergs are also partnering with UpCircle Beauty to create a new product, which you'll be able to try at the festival. Make sure to visit their stand to discover a 360 perspective of their circular economy and how they're giving coffee a second chance.
We’d like to extend a big thank you to our forward-thinking partners and all the conscientious coffee lovers, who are helping us reach our goals. We’re already well on our way.
Please help us pull together as a community to meet our sustainability goals.
