Drink of the Week/Month
The Green Bean is no longer fundraising with specialty drinks, but we still do promotions! If you are interested in having a specialty promotion drink for your club, team, or other campus organization, contact the Programming & Customer Experience Manager! (via email@example.com)
Sustainability at the Green Bean
We are passionate about environmental sustainability and dedicated to being "green." We strive to raise awareness about social and environmental practices.
The Green Bean has made great strides to using fully sustainable resources in all of its products and packaging. Not all of these changes have been obvious, but they are making an impact by helping to keep our environment clean. If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to contact the current Health, Safety, and Sustainability Manager!
Order drinks “for-here” to receive it in a reusable cup or mug, and earn a 20 cent discount! There is no token program, just return the cup to our lovely baristas when you’re done (please do not take our cups or mugs out of the Green Bean premises)! Customers can also receive the discount for bringing in their own cup or mug from home!
We have transitioned to using all compostable paper cups for both hot and iced drinks served at the Green Bean, to reduce plastic waste (even PLA7 bio-plastic, which cannot be processed by our contractor). Plastic cups, lids, utensils, and straws must go in the landfill to avoid over-contamination of compost loads.
Nearly all of our packaging from suppliers, including milks, teas, and coffee beans, comes in recyclable packaging! We are hoping to eventually cut down on all non-recycled or composted packaging.
