Joyride's Commitment to Sustainability
Joyride was designed from the ground up to be the most environmentally, socially and economically sustainable option for office coffee and cold beverages. Sustainability is simply part of our DNA.
To accomplish our mission, we have designed our business to not only maintain the highest possible quality standards, but to also create the most sustainable option for offices looking to upgrade their beverage program. We've outlined below the key ways Joyride can help you decrease your carbon footprint with a locally-focused beverage program or a Craft on Draft® keg system.
Direct Trade Relationships at
Joyride only sources from roasting partners that maintain Direct Trade relationships, which involve direct coordination with the roaster and the farmer at the country of origin. This model is more environmentally and economically sustainable, paying local farmers higher prices than they can achieve on the commodity market. This ensures our high quality beans are grown, harvested, and processed in a responsible way. What's better than that?
The Joyride Keg Program
Although recycling has made great strides for sustainability, billions of plastic bottles each year still end up in landfills and in the world’s oceans. The best way to avoid this is to make use of alternative, reusable containers such as kegs. Each Joyride keg replaces up to 160 bottles from circulation and as a method of sustainable beverage dispensing.
At our core, Joyride is a local, family-run business. We select only the best local roasters and deliver our coffee to customers that are, on average, within 50 miles of our distribution and production facilities. We are 100% committed to never using single serve pods, which are not only low quality, but also extremely harmful to the environment. This local focus reduces our carbon footprint and allows us to gain ecological efficiencies that simply aren't possible on a national scale.
