With 19 locations across Chicagoland and people ordering our coffee nationwide, Dollop has a pretty large footprint. We know it also means Dollop has an equally large responsibility to our neighbors and opportunity to lead change.
It’s no surprise that the coffee industry is going to be hit hard by climate change and traditional coffee operations compound the problem. Obviously as a business we have a vested interest in slowing climate change. But more importantly, as people running and benefiting from that business, we have a moral obligation to combat climate change—especially when it disproportionately effects the livelihoods of the very people who grow our coffee.

Composting with WasteNot
Coffee Bags & Return Program
Saving Food Waste
As first steps, we are transitioning all our packaging to compostable, plant-based materials and partnering with WasteNot to compost at all of our cafes. With packaging production, plastic pollution and food waste being significant pieces of our environmental footprint, we wanted to fully embrace composting— all while making it easier for you to do the same.

We want to make environmentalism as easy and affordable as your morning cup of coffee. When you sign up for WasteNot Compost services at home, you’ll get a free month of service on WasteNot!
