Commuter Comforts has gone green. Today our customers are drinking out of 100% compostable cups. Compostable products require less energy and release fewer toxins in production than recycled products and they break down quickly into organic material. Most of our waste is recycled - even our coffee grounds are used to keep local parks and library gardens green. However, we don't recycle our employees! Most of our employees have been with us for an average of 8 years. And, we buy local - over 90% of our vendors are homegrown.
