Tea in the Park promotes the reuse, recycle and reduce agenda by using compostable cups, lids & napkins. Our coffee grounds are given to our community allotment scheme which will act as a fertisiler for crops.
Our coffee is sourced from local supplier 'Causeway Coffee' which uses ethically sourced beans and our young people have been Barista trained and engaged in workshops to learn about the coffee background, history and origin.
