Sustainability

Venn is committed to sustainability business practises

Venn is committed to being environmentally friendly.

We are passionate about protecting the world that our children will grow up in and are doing our best to support environmentally friendly practices throughout our spaces.

Some of the ways we reduce, reuse and recycle include:

  • Our milk suppliers, Bannister Downs, use recycled cardboard cartons for their deliveries, swapping out our empty boxes, plus Ecoclean packaging for their milk products
  • We collect all our lids and bread tags and donate them to HOSCA for sensory play, colour sorting and recyclability education.
  • All of our coffee beans are delivered in 4-8kg buckets, eliminating any packaging before they end up in our store.
  • All the coffee grounds produced in store are available for pick up at the back of Venn, for your garden and compost needs
  • We promote the use of reusable cups and provide a 50c discount per coffee (COVID-19 regulations may apply)
  • We have Returnr cups available for use
  • Our retail coffee bags are fully compostable and we encourage customers to bring them back to reuse, or alternatively, bring their own container in to fill! (COVID-19 regulations may apply)
  • Jam jars reused as water glasses
  • We REDcycle all our Holy Bagel Company bagel plastic sleeves
  • Our daily newspapers are donated to the art studio at Curtin University
  • Many of our staff live locally and do their best to walk or ride their bikes

Thank you for supporting us and please let us know if you have further suggestions for how we can be environmentally friendly!
