Sustainable Products: Our Top 5 Picks For Sustainable Sipping

Equator Coffee Roasters has a proven track record of valuing sustainable and equitable practices in the coffee industry, and the products we offer are no exception. From straws to filters, glasses, and coffee, we’ve got you covered to start sipping more sustainably not just in our cafes but in your own home.

Read on for our top 5 picks.

1. Lastra Straw Set – Blue & Rose Gold

Iced coffee fans will appreciate a set of lifetime-guaranteed Lastra straws. They are made of 18/8 food grade stainless steel and come with three dishwasher-safe nesting straws plus a cleaning brush that is built into the cap to hold the straws together in place when opened to prevent them from spilling out.

We offer Lastra straw sets in blue and rose gold depending on your preferred style. For more information, check out our article here.

2. AeroPress Stainless Disk Filter

Stainless steel disk filter for the Aeropress by Able

Espresso enthusiasts may wish to consider opting for the reusable Able Disk standard filter for their AeroPress brews on-the-go rather than relying on single-use paper filters. The result is a fuller bodied cup of joe that is full of deliciously flavorful coffee oils.

However, a word of caution: if you are watching your cholesterol, or you are at risk for heart disease, you should avoid oily brews and stick with filtered cups of coffee for your health’s sake (1).

3. 16oz Equator Glass with Bamboo Lid and Glass Straw

So long single-use plastics – stay stylishly hydrated with our eco-friendly reusable 16 oz Equator Glass that comes as a set with a glass straw and a cute bamboo lid.

4. CoffeeSock for Hario V60-02

Hario V60-02 CoffeeSock and the retail box.

This pair of socks is a little bit different than what you’d expect! A set of two CoffeeSock: Hario V60 reusable natural coffee filters are a cheaper way to yield even tastier brews consistently than paper filters! These zero-waste, eco-friendly, and compostable filters are handmade in Austin, Texas from organic cotton that has been harvested sustainably and are sure to last you a year minimum. They work exactly the same as other filters, except rather than discard them when you’re done all you’ll need to do is rinse it and let it dry out before your next use. Soap is not necessary, but using a mild detergent is optional.

5. Canadian Wildlife Federation Coffee – Monarch Blend

340g bag of the Monarch Blend Coffee for the Canadian Wildlife Federation.

Each purchase of Equator’s Monarch Blend medium roast coffee helps the Canadian Wildlife Federation restore the wildflower habitats of our declining Monarch butterfly populations for wildlife conservation in Canada. Protecting our pollinators is in our best interests as they are vital to sustaining life as we know it.

Talk about sustainable sipping (with tasting notes of nutty, vanilla, and classic to boot!) 

We hope this short and sweet list helps you to shop at Equator more sustainably!
