Sustainable From Bean to Brew

As we approach the anniversary of launching Together Coffee, we wanted to take a little time out to talk about the lifespan of your coffee beans. While most of us only see the end result of products we purchase, it’s important when moving to a more sustainable lifestyle that we acknowledge the whole life cycle of what we consume.  It’s easy to become disconnected from the process of how our food makes it from farm to our homes. But when we don’t pay attention, it becomes easier and easier for companies to reduce their commitment to manufacturing practices that [...]

Being a verified member of the Fair Trade Federation, providing livable wages, and being both environmentally and socially conscious is extremely important to us. But far be it from us to pretend like there’s no room for improvement! One key initiative for us in 2021 is to reduce (and someday entirely remove!) plastic waste from our packaging. The fashion industry is a big contributor to industrial waste, and we’re determined to help lead the industry to a brighter, cleaner future. To that end, we are proud to announce we’ve joined the [...]

Why Should I Shop Fair-Trade?

We are big believers in the importance of fair trade, but many coming to Sseko are learning about this certification for the first time. In an age where people are becoming increasingly conscientious about where they shop, how their products are made and who is making them, fair trade knowledge is a means by which you can start to shape how you shop.  What is fair trade? Fair Trade USA® describes it like this: “Fair-trade is a global movement made up of a diverse network of producers, companies, consumers, advocates, and organizations putting people and planet first.” Fair-trade establishes [...]
