As part of our commitment to the environment at Old Street Coffee Co.Ltd (OSCC) have partnered with Green Earth Appeal and we have committed to planting an initial 10 fruit trees for every new Coffee machine customer .This will not only provide ten tonnes of carbon sequestration but will also help to provide some of the planets poorest communities with an opportunity of a sustainable life for them and generations to come
We have also upgraded our online checkout enabling our clients and online customers to carbon offset the Eco Roast Coffee, coffee consumables and disposables delivery service we can provide.
Working within a network across Africa, Asia and South America, The Green Earth Appeal help to provide “exit strategy aid”. This follows a simple but proven process – Education, Infrastructure, Trees, Sustainability.
Smallholder farmers are taught through workshops about the benefits of Agroforestry, a system which combines agriculture and forestry technologies to create a more integrated, diverse, productive, profitable, healthy, and sustainable land-use system that is especially beneficial to the small-scale farm. Part of this process identifies which species of trees will best suit the individual farmers.
Central nurseries are built for all the local participating farmers. The tools and appropriate seeds are given to the communities for them to begin the life-transforming work.
Saplings are transferred from the nurseries to the “forest gardens” using the Agroforestry methodology. This can be anything up to 4000 trees for each farmer, consisting of 20 varieties of trees.
Over a period of around 4 years, the farmers will continue to receive education and assistance with their “forest garden”, by which time their lives will have changed beyond recognition from when the journey began. Once they are empowered and have achieved sustainability they can continue their lives without the need for handouts and aid.
