Ethical Caffeine The coffee industry responds to the environmental crisis Implications - Along with being more health-conscious, the coffee industry is becoming eco-aware, taking active steps to evaluate and reduce its environmental impact. Coffee manufacturers have begun to re-purpose byproducts that would otherwise go to waste, as well as switch to recyclable packaging methods. Taking an eco perspective in the creation, distribution and aftermath of its product ensures that the industry not only positions itself as caring and compassionate, but also becomes a catalyst for global change.

Helping individuals improve their sleep patterns in a less invasive manner, the use of complex carbohydrates speaks to the broadening usage of health foods in all aspects of consumer lives.
