Coffee sacks free to good homes
You’re probably all well aware of how useful a coffee sack can be – from kindling carryall to sheet mulch fabulousness, to cushion covers/pictures for coffee addicts/seat wraps… The VEG Wicking Beds crew are using them to send their orders in (as they’re both reusable & compostable), but will certainly have spares in any given week.
There’s three kinds available (with sample pics below):
- coarse weave compostable
- fine weave compostable
- tight weave non-compostable (*to the best of my knowledge – they have plastic threads woven in);
The resource has been redirected from landfill and is sourced from a local roaster. Furthermore in the spirit of making the world an (even) better place, they’re being offered gratis for causes and mobs such as community gardens, school kitchen gardens, & like-minded bods, and a suggested gold coin donation if for personal use – with 100% of the proceeds going to this organisation offering business micro-loans to those at the coffee source for life-betterment.
If you’d like one, a few or a whole lot then shoot through an expression of interest for some below and the fine folk at VEG will sort you out.
Coffee bag collections are currently on ice due to Covid restrictions. If you’re still super-keen for coffee bags, see if you can contact your local roastery, or maybe even try CERES as part of their Click’n’Collect service. Stay safe everyone!
Collection is from the VEG warehouse in Brunswick
Please note that there’s likely some coffee roasters all over, if if who aren’t local to Brunswick – a quick google of this highlights a fair few: eg coffee roaster mulgrave. So you really shouldn’t be conned into paying for them (sometimes a $1) as most of the roasters are chucking them out… so you’re actually saving them on bin fees!
