Why Drink Bird Friendly Coffee?

When it comes to bird conservation, the coffee you drink matters.  Alot. 

 

Most coffee is "sun-grown".  This means vast swaths of land have been cleared for coffee production.

This is detrimental to birds for several reasons:

Large areas are clear cut and wiped of natural vegetation

Sun grown coffee requires fertilizers and pesticides

More water is used

Coffee grows faster and is of lower quality

When forests are cleared away for coffee farms, so is critical bird habitat!

 

Shade grown, Bird Friendly certified coffee is different:

Grown under tree canopies, within natural forest areas

Requires less chemicals and water

Coffee matures more slowly, which means it tastes better

Biodiversity is preserved and areas are ecologically healthy

Provideds habitat for 20x more species of birds
