Sustainability & Single-Use Packaging
Yes, we love to recycle and compost! Just like you! In fact, we pay extra and work harder to provide compostable and recyclable containers whenever possible.
But let's face it, green materials are still a work in progress, and it still takes ALOT of energy to produce and process all these single-use materials!
So...what if we figured out how not to dispose of anything at all? No more paper cups!? or coffee bags?
Are you willing to try it out? Because we've got options! And we have $$ discounts for your hard work. Together, we can do this, Ann Arbor!
So keep reading for the ultimate guide to everything refillable and reusable at RoosRoast.

Quick FAQs on Bean Refills
Industrial Coffee Bag Recycling
You can recycle your coffee bag! Any kind - at both Rosewood and Liberty cafes.
Basically all coffee bags are coated with a thin film of plastic (and other materials, plus coffee oils!) that make it impossible to recycle in your city's recycling centers. The tech is still catching up to create affordable recycable, coffee bags or truly compostable coffee bags.
So, we found TerraCycle!
Look for the box at both locations and bring us your used bags. When the TerraCycle recycling box is full to the brim, we package it up and send it off to be industrially recycled. Yay!
Thanks for your efforts!
We're working together to experiment with a less wasteful lifestyle. We appreciate you and the planet we share.
Enjoy the sky, the flowers, the beautiful green and blue pulsing miracle of it all.
