Celebrating America Recycles Day: How The Human Bean Stays Green

The Human Bean is dedicated to renewable business practices. We try to make a difference in any way we can! During this America Recycles Day, we encourage all of you to make an active effort to bring sustainability into your everyday life. Here are a few ways you can start to do so:

Reuse Coffee Grounds for Composting

We love re-purposing! That is why we set our bags of coffee grounds out from spring to fall to use in composting. Customers can pick up as they please or bring in a bucket for us to fill year-round.

Ditch the Paper Cups

We carry a variety of travel mugs including Hydroflasks (and reusable sleeves)! We offer a $0.25 discount for Human Bean mugs (even if you put one of our stickers on it – that counts!) and a $0.10 discount for reusable sleeves and any off-brand travel mug refill.


This may seem like an obvious one, but a staggering amount of households in the US still do not recycle at home. Make an effort to start separating your waste into recyclable and non-recyclable.

We hope you will consider applying these sustainable habits to your everyday routine.
