Arbor Day Foundation is solid non-profit organization that also makes great coffee. Their goal is to save trees as well as the environment in general, which they incorporate into their coffee growing practices by making much of it shade grown. They also specialize in organic and fair trade blends.
Having consumed some Eight O’ Clock coffee earlier in the day, I had a point of reference for the superior quality of the Arbor Day Blend. While Eight O’ Clock coffee is bearable, Arbor Day Blend is a pleasurable drinking experience. It is noticeably fresh, with a bright, balanced flavor.
Something I appreciate about the Arbor Day Foundation is their strategically limited focus: Their goal is to instill in people a proactive appreciation of trees. They are smart to zero-in on one of, if not the most effective thing you can do to keep the environment healthy, which is to plant trees (at least one per year). This also happens to be an attainable goal for the average person.
In case you didn’t already know (I didn’t until recently), we’re supposed to plant a tree every Arbor Day, which falls on different calendar dates, depending on your location (it even varies state-to-state).
To really appreciate all that the Arbor Day Foundation does for communities in the U.S. and around the world, you have to visit ArborDay.org and check it out.
