We offset the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from every Brink delivery that we make.
Using industry models to determine the amount of CO2 that is released into the atmosphere for each delivery, we donate a monetary amount to a third-party provider that offsets the emission.
This offset could involve planting a tree or trees, contributing to projects that work to stop deforestation around the world, or improving and protecting existing forests.
What is Carbon Offsetting?
Imagine making a mess, let’s say spilling a can of paint. But you don’t know how to clean up paint, or you just don’t want to. So instead of cleaning it yourself, you pay someone to clean up a different can of spilled paint somewhere else, or to prevent another paint can from being spilled.
The paint you spilled is still there. But the number of total paint cans spilled in the world is the same as before you spilled yours. This is what carbon offsets are like for the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions we release into the atmosphere.

All of our coffee bags are 100% recyclable, so once you've finished with it, make sure it goes in your recycling bin so it can go on to become something else! Our cardboard delivery boxes are the same, so please make sure they get recycled too.
Reuse your ground coffee
Ground coffee is entirely natural and compostable, and has a number of uses once you've had a delicious cup of Brink. Take a look at what you can do rather than throwing it in the bin:
- Add it to a compost so it can decompose naturally
- Use it in the garden as a fertilizer
- Mould them into coffee logs for burning on fires
- Deter slugs and snails from eating your plants
- Make a face mask to exfoliate your skin
- Mix with water and add to plants to help them grow
