Attitude


Kapeh believes that, regardless of their size, all companies should be held accountable for the impacts they cause and should do their best to minimize these impacts. Consequently, along our entire production chain, we seek to adopt measures which generate a positive balance, such as:

- Use of high quality certified coffee produced in a sustainable manner, with environmental preservation and highest respect for people.
-  Disclosing the origin and traceability of our main raw material: the coffee
-  Using recyclable or recycled packaging material.
- Participating in the after-consumption Packaging Collection Project in the states of Parana, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, for the collection and recycling of our packaging.
- In our exclusive stores we develop the Kapeh Recycling Program, collecting our packaging.
- In our entire chain we seek partners who share our philosophy.


 

Incentive to Recycling


Kapeh believes that we all have to do our share to have a better planet to live on. This is why it developed a recycling program for its packaging.

 

For each half-dozen of plastic or metallic packages, or for every 10 packages of miniatures of Kapeh products returned to one of our exclusive stores, you receive a bar of herbal soap.


This program of after-sales responsibility has the objective of reducing the negative impact of our product packages on the environment, and to promote the generation of work and income, social inclusion and the improvement of the quality of life of the recyclable material collectors.
