Welcome to Sustainable Summer, a month-long community effort dedicated to making small changes on big issues.On Friday, August 30, we're celebrating #SustainableSummer at each of our Training Centers (following our weekly cupping) with organic snacks, lively conversation, and a panel discussion about climate change and the future. Of course, there will also be plenty of coffee. Click here for details.

The get-togethers will revolve around a panel discussion with sustainability luminaries Scott Marlow of the Rural Advancement Foundation International and Mausi Kuhl of Selva Negra/La Hammonia coffee farm in Nicaragua. The panel discussion will be broadcast on our YouTube channel.

Join us, as well as our friends at Rishi Tea, Taza Chocolate, King Arthur Flour, Patagonia, and TS Designs, as we send this summer out with a sustainable bang in this final week of #SustainableSummer by taking the pledge to conserve resources on Facebook or e-mail us for more information.

Thanks,
Nathan
