Our Sustainable Practices in One Place

At our kombucha brewery, sustainability isn't just a buzzword – it's ingrained in the fabric of our business. Here's how we uphold our commitment to sustainability:


Crafted with Care:

In collaboration with Gamer Gadetry, a local 3D printing company in the Okanagan, we produce our tap handles and flight trays using PLA, an eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastics. Derived from natural or recycled materials like corn starch and sugarcane, PLA is biodegradable and non-toxic, embodying our dedication to environmental stewardship.


Eco-Conscious Packaging:

We opt for aluminum cans due to their exceptional recyclability, with nearly 75% of all aluminum ever produced still in circulation today. Beyond their recyclability, aluminum's lightweight nature minimizes transportation emissions and energy consumption, aligning perfectly with our sustainable ethos. Our pack-techs, designed to hold six cans at a time, are both biodegradable and reusable, ensuring our commitment to sustainability extends to every aspect of our packaging.


Embracing Imperfection:

Recognizing our occasional clumsiness, we sometimes drop cans, resulting in dents and blemishes. While most places might discard these imperfect products, we've chosen a different path. Instead of wasting these dented cans, we offer them at a special 50% off price. By selling these slightly imperfect cans, we mitigate unnecessary waste while allowing those who love the product to get their fav drink at a sweet discount.


Responsible Back-of-House Practices:

Sustainability isn't confined to the front lines of our brewery – it permeates every corner, including our back-of-house operations. Here, we prioritize the use of refillable chemical containers over single-use plastics. By making this switch, we significantly reduce waste and shrink our environmental footprint. Single-use plastics, commonly used for chemical storage, pose serious threats to the environment. Our transition to refillable containers mitigates this impact, with each refill eliminating the need for additional plastic production and eventual disposal.

At our brewery, savoring a glass of refreshing kombucha isn't just about flavor – it's about knowing you're making a positive impact on the planet, both inside and out.
