The Eco Plus Promise
Founded in 2022 by Tom Carroll and Ben Potesky, Eco Plus Coffee was built on the idea that business can be the solution to the world's biggest challenges. As a whole, Americans consume an average of 400 million cups of coffee per day. What if each of those cups of coffee could offset carbon emissions or clean the ocean? Eco Plus Coffee is built on the idea that America's favorite beverage can be leveraged into a force for good. By partnering with Climate Vault and CleanHub, we are offsetting double the carbon and plastic we produce. Moreover, by helping businesses fuel change by supplying their teams with our coffee, we believe that our impact will have profound results. Our mission is simple: provide delicious, fairly sourced coffee while creating a net good for the planet.
