Office Coffee Company, certified by The Planet Mark, helps businesses protect rainforest through Cool Earth

The Office Coffee Company, a Planet Mark certified organisation, has become a fast-growing sensation, allowing other businesses to improve the quality of their office coffee and save acres of rainforest just by installing a new coffee machine.

Working across London and the UK, The Office Coffee Company is providing businesses with drinks machines that dispense Cool Earth charity’s rainforest saving coffee. With every purchase, up to 5 trees are saved in the rainforest.

The three-year-old company has recently acquired new business with Lidl and Battersea Power Station, London.

So far, The Office Coffee Company’s customers have saved 330,000 acres of endangered rainforest. Their clients, which include leading worldwide brands Diesel and Mulberry, have been responsible for the protection of 59, 981 trees.

Managing Director, Richard Doherty says, “The Office Coffee Company firmly believes in ethically sourced products. We believe that every business has the responsibility to do what they can to protect the environment and what better way to do this than with a coffee whilst at work?”

“We want to turn the U.K into a country of rainforest rescuers. Our aim for 2020 is to have saved 200,000 trees. If businesses chose Cool Earth tea and coffee as part of their office supplies, the long-term benefits for the Amazon rainforest and climate change will be phenomenal.” he added.
