Earth Month is here, and that means you’re probably going about your daily routine with a bit more awareness of environmental impact. Maybe you’ve decided to take public transit or ride your bike to the office to reduce your carbon footprint. But what about your morning coffee? It’s a ritual most of us need to get our day going. Have you ever considered how your place in the coffee supply chain affects the environment?
Consider a Dungeons & Dragons alignment chart: When it comes to your morning cup of joe, are you a lawful good defender of sustainable development? Or a chaotic evil cup disposer?
Check out our chart below to see how your daily caffeine hit stacks up.
Every step of your morning routine is steeped in sustainability. From fair-trade coffee beans to organic reusable filters, you consider the long-term effects of your caffeine habit with every sip.
The organic coffee guy
You understand that the coffee industry has a significant impact on the environment. From green coffee brands to local roasters, you to support the little guys of the coffee sector. You don’t mind spending extra if it means supporting sustainable brands. That said, enjoying your coffee out of whatever mug you can find suits you just fine.
The organic-obsessed zealot
While you have the best intentions, your obsession with sustainable and organic coffee crosses the line.
As a chaotic good coffee drinker, you take matters of sustainability into your own hands—even forcing it upon your coworkers. In fact, your colleagues wouldn’t put it past you to order that fancy free trade stuff for the breakroom, even without the OK from accounting.
The coffee pot watchman
You don’t have any skin in the coffee production game, but you keep the coffee flowing. Everyone has their own taste—who are you to judge? You just know that no one else ever seems to refill the office coffee-pot after pouring the last cup. So you do. Every time.
It’s a tedious job, but somebody’s got to do it.
You’ve never really enjoyed the flavor, but you started drinking one cup of black coffee every morning twenty years ago, and you’re still at it today. You’ve got one mug to do the job—simple, white, nondescript. Let the millennials and hippies argue about their fancy bean water. You just need your morning black.
The caffeine addict
You’ll take a cup of stale coffee from the local diner just as willingly as an over-priced latte from the specialty shop down the street. Free trade craft drinks or mass-produced swill—doesn’t matter. If it’s caffeinated and within reach, you’ll drink it.
The bigger-is-better loyalist
Coffee prices are getting ridiculous! All you want is something to help wake you up in the morning. You’ve got a value-sized tub of off-brand instant coffee in your cabinet and some generic creamer in your fridge. You’re happy buying the cheap stuff in bulk, and you’re not looking to change your routine to save a few trees.
The takeaway every day
Stopping by the drive-thru to get your venti mocha on the way to work is your coveted morning ritual—they’ve usually got it waiting for you at 6:30 am sharp. You know you spend too much money on coffee, and chucking a plastic cup into the bin every day certainly isn’t doing anything good for your carbon footprint. But who cares? Your coffee is as reliable as it is delicious, and that’s all that matters.
The coffee pod consumer
From dark French roasts to sickly sweet drinks, there’s a k-cup to suit your every mood. You refuse to be held down by any one flavor. The short-term convenience that comes with a single cup of coffee anytime, anywhere is a dream come true to you. Sure, that’s a lot of plastic going to waste–but it’s just so easy!
Be a Conscious Coffee Consumer
The environmental impact of your morning coffee may be more significant than you think.
Using alignment chart templates to have a laugh with your coworkers is all well and good, but it can also be enlightening. Are you aware of how your favorite coffee is produced, or do you simply sip away without much thought?
Hopefully, after checking where you stand on our sustainable coffee alignment chart, you can find a way to caffeinate with a clear conscience. And maybe walk away with some newfound perspective, too.
