Help the Environment, Get Free Coffee!
So, you have some old Flight Coffee bags lying around. What to do with them?
Well, we have an idea - Upcycle! One Flight's founding principles is to try and be good stewards of our planet, so finding ways to reduce packaging waste is always a priority. That, by the way is one reason you will never see Flight emulating some of the crazy packaging trends popular in the industry. Sure, your box of coffee looks cool, but what, you need to have a bag inside the box to keep it fresh? Oh, yes of course, your box is recyclable, but you know what's better than a recyclable box? How about no box. But, I digress...
We've played with various packaging options over the years and even tried the compostable Biotre bags. The problem is, those bags don't compost. Not really, not properly, and certainly not in anything other than a municipal composting facility of which there are precious few in Northern New England.
So, what to do? what to do? Well, fortunately, the vendor for our new bags has partnered with Arqlite in Santa Ana California to upcycle these used bags and turn them into their Smart Gravel product.
What's the catch? Well, only certain types of bags qualify for this program, which for now means our new 12 ounce bags with the Recycling QR code on the side.
Here is the deal - you bring us (or mail us) ten of these and we'll trade you for a 12 ounce bag filled with your choice of one of our current coffees (up to a $22 value).
VERY IMPORTANT - PLEASE REMOVE THE LABEL FROM THE BAG BEFORE SENDING IT IN. WE CAN'T RECYCLE BAGS WITH PAPER LABELS ON THEM. BAGS RECEIVED WITH LABELS WILL BE DISCARDED OR CAN BE RETURNED TO YOU AT YOUR COST.
Just include a little note in your package telling us which coffee you want and where to ship it. We'll even pick up the shipping cost of the coffee, so it really is free!
Please note that if you choose to bring the bags to us, we only accept them at the Bedford, NH Flagship Cafe. The Dover cafe is a licensee and is not part of Flight Coffee Company, Inc. We ask that Dover customers follow the mail-in procedure below to receive their free bag.
Drink Flight, Save Bags, Get Free Coffee and feel good about your part in reducing waste.
