Being kind to OUR planet

Some of the ways Ah Cacao helps you reduce our impact on the planet.

  • Sourcing cacao and coffee from growers who share our vision and values of nature conservation.

  • Producing all our factory's electricity with zero emission roof-top solar panels.

  • Designing our factory to use natural ventilation instead of air conditioning where possible.

  • Offering free drinking water so our guests can avoid single use bottles.

  • Promoting the use of reusable cups and shopping bags.

  • Encouraging bicycle use by installing public bicycle stands.

  • Donation of 30 trap cameras for Jaguar Wildlife Center, A.C. to record the movements of jaguars and other wildlife in Quintana Roo, Mexico.

  • Staff t-shirts from 100% recycled materials from Rewear Sustainable Wear.

  • Participating in regular beach cleaning initiatives to encourage sea turtle nesting.

  • Partnering with Conservation International in Mexico to help farmers grow cacao using sustainable practices.

  • Developing environmental education materials with Flora, fauna y cultura de México, A.C. for use in schools in Mexico.
