Good morning to everyone at the inaugural BioCities event, How Food Systems Shape Cities: Ecological and Economic Perspectives!
The panel discussions at this event focus on issues affecting only more of us each day, as people across the world push further into urban environments. More than half of the human population now live in cities.
We’re very excited to have our special-edition Rainforest Foundation Project coffee bag featured among Vogue’s top ten most wanted products for Earth Day this Sunday, April 22nd! We’re in some very fine company on the list, so check it out for all the other great selections!
Earlier this month, Irving Farm launched a special-edition charity coffee offering at the 2012 Benefit Concert for The Rainforest Foundation. 700 guests including Bill Clinton, Elton John, Meryl Streep, Bryn Terfel, Rita Wilson and others joined founders Trudie Styler and Sting to raise funds and celebrate the ongoing work of the foundation. You can see pictures from this event at our blog.
But the work and the celebration didn’t end at the concert. As Earth Day approaches, we want everyone to join in. For each bag of this coffee sold, we’re giving a dollar to The Rainforest Foundation. Each dollar enables the foundation to protect 60 trees and 9000 square feet of forestland. Please read more about this project here and consider joining us in our efforts.
Starting on Earth Day (this Sunday, April 22nd!) our cafes, 71 Irving Place and 56 Seventh Avenue, will be brewing only the Rainforest Foundation Project coffee blend for one whole week. So stop by for a cup!
