Celebrating Earth Day with Reusable Bag Giveaway

Reusable Bag Giveaway Friday, April 22nd marks Earth Day 2016.

reusable bag giveaway

Our reusable bag giveaway is in celebration of Earth Day!  We are giving Human Bean customers complimentary reusable shopping bags with our Human Bean logo on them.  They will receive one with their drink purchase that day while supplies last. Check with your favorite Human Bean location for participation.

From shopping to groceries, you’ll love finding new ways to reuse your bag! And you’ll feel good using an eco-friendly bag vs disposable, single-use, plastic ones!¬† Reusable bags are a simple way to be kinder to our earth.¬† They can cause harm to¬†marine animals and clog up our landfills since they decompose so slowly.¬†

Over the years, The Human Bean has provided customers with over 80,000 bags during our reusable bag giveaway on Earth Day. Just think of the thousands of plastic bags we saved by making this small change!

Because supplies are limited, reusable shopping bags will be given on a first come, first serve basis on Earth Day (limit 2 bags per vehicle). Most Human Bean locations are participating, but check-in with your favorite stand before Earth Day to be sure.

Visit our Facebook Earth Day Event Page for more info & updates and join the event for a notification reminder the morning of Earth Day.

The Human Bean tries to extend their earth friendly practices globally as well through their Farm Friendly Direct program, which is their direct-trade coffee sourcing program. They work directly with the farmers that grow their coffee and pay them at or above market prices. They also allocate additional funds for community projects such as: building water systems, school and community centers and facilitating earth friendly soil, water and farming practices.

See you at The Human Bean for delicious drinks & reusable bags on Earth Day! (4/22)

Human Bean Sponsorship for Local Bike Race Team

Human Bean Sponsorship for a Team in a Local Bike Race was a fun time for all!

The Human Bean is a proud supporter¬†of the communities we serve. Through fundraisers, donation days and sponsorships, we’ve raised and donated thousands of dollars for countless organizations over the years. ¬†For example, our biggest annual fundraiser, Coffee for A Cure, has raised¬†over $850,000 for community¬†breast health centers since 2002. Learn¬†more about Coffee for A Cure here.

In addition to large-scale fundraisers like Coffee for A Cure, The Human Bean also values supporting smaller¬†local events too, like the “Brewhaus Cross”. The Human Bean supported this event by sponsoring a¬†¬†race team from Southern Oregon’s¬†Marty‚Äôs Cycle Bicycle Shop. The Brewhaus Cross is an exciting 4 day bike race held each September that benefits local Search & Rescue.

The bike races were held over the summer on Thursday the 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th of September at the Bigham Knoll Campus in Jacksonville, Oregon. During and after¬†the race, bikers and supporters enjoyed yummy Brats and beer from Jacksonville’s Schoolhaus Brewhaus Restaurant.¬†Since 2004, this fun local¬†event has raised over $200,000 in cash and equipment for¬†Josephine County Search and Rescue. The Human Bean is proud to support¬†Marty‚Äôs Cycle Bike Shop’s race team in such an awesome community event!

It may have been 106¬į, but The Human Bean Sponsorship¬†brought The Breeze to Concerts in the Park in Southern Oregon.

The Human Bean sponsorship of¬†Jackson County’s weekly concert series called Concerts in the Park is going through the summer.¬† This concert series is¬†coordinated by Medford Parks & Recreation and is held at the new Medford Commons outdoor space.¬†Last¬†week,¬†they pushed their Human Bean sponsorship even further by providing free iced tea to those attending the concert.¬†They featured¬†their sweet summertime iced tea called The Breeze.¬† Human Bean¬†baristas served overheated concert enthusiasts refreshing green iced tea sweetened with a splash of lemonade and raspberry.

Everyone who tried The Breeze had nothing but great things to say.  The community event  was a huge success overall. The Human Bean takes pride in the active role they play within the community.  They look forward to supporting similar events in the near future.

We have many other delicious and refreshing drinks like this to offer on our Human Bean menu.  With a passion for creating happy people and our love of coffee, we opened our first drive-thru espresso stand in Ashland Oregon in 1998. The demand for convenient, quality coffee & espresso grew and soon after opening our original location in Ashland, we expanded to surrounding cities in Southern Oregon. The Human Bean quickly established a reputation for having friendly and experienced baristas and offering the highest quality ingredients.

Human Bean Tennis Sponsorship Supports Community

A recent Human Bean tennis sponsorship of the 19th annual Tennis Championships was held at the Rogue Valley Swim and Tennis Club.  The tournament was on June 12-14, 2015. The Tennis Championships is a community fundraising event dedicated to supporting children in the community of Jackson County.

In fact, ALL profits raised from this event were donated to a local non-profit, Parks & Recreation Foundation. This worthy foundation supports enrichment programs for youth and adults.  Additionally it aids in the development of community projects and parks. The money raised from the Tennis Championships will be specifically given as sports scholarships to local children.  These children would otherwise be unable to participate in these programs.

Our 9th annual Coffee for A Cure 2015 donation day is this Friday, October 24th and we are both ready and excited to celebrate with you. Proceeds from Coffee for A Cure’s one-day beverage and pastry sales will be donated to local hospitals.  This money will provide uninsured and under-insured women in our communities with low income mammograms, treatment and follow-up care.

This year marks the ninth annual Coffee for A Cure donation day.  Over the years it has become much more than a fundraiser for us. It has additionally become a part of our brand’s identity. Coffee for A Cure is about giving back and also being a supporter of the communities we serve. Thanks to your support, Coffee for A Cure has raised over $548,000 to date.

From guest baristas to scavenger hunts, Coffee for A Cure has grown from a single donation day, to exciting festivities all October long. We’re always looking for ways to improve and expand Coffee for A Cure. This year, we introduced Lip Balms for A Cure that will raise an additional $2,500 toward our cause.
