Unfolding the Pages of 2023 – A Year-End Journal

Welcome to the pages of our year-end journal. As we leaf through the chapters of the past year, each page reveals a narrative of growth, connection, and innovation. In the dynamic landscape of 2023, we gained an array of new customers and vendors and forged meaningful partnerships that propelled us forward. Our journey was accentuated by the launch of exciting new sustainable product lines, where innovation met the demands of an ever-evolving market. Join us as we revisit the insightful Lunch and Learn sessions that explored cutting-edge topics, the vibrant events we participated in, and a recap of the knowledge and updates we shared through our newsletters. Together, let’s unravel the stories that defined our collective success and set the stage for the promising chapters that lie ahead.

New Customers & Vendors

NEW Sustainable Product Line

For years, disposable coffee cups have been a staple for busy commuters and coffee aficionados on the go. However, their convenience comes at a significant environmental cost. Traditional coffee cups are typically lined with a thin layer of plastic, making them non-recyclable and slow to degrade in landfills. This results in an alarming amount of single-use plastic waste that pollutes our oceans and harms wildlife.

The good news is that there is a growing awareness of the coffee cup problem, and an increasing number of coffee shops, businesses, and consumers are embracing sustainable alternatives. Enter our biodegradable compostable recyclable non-plastic coffee cup!
