Working to combat climate change

We’re working with the Sussex Kelp Recovery Project and Blue Marine Foundation to support the recovery of kelp forests along the south coast.

Over time, these once-lush marine habitats have been reduced to a few small patches and individual plants. With reforestation, they’ll once again play a valuable role in removing CO2 from the atmosphere, reducing coastal erosion, and providing a haven for wildlife. Fisheries will benefit too.

Roast & Ground customers are helping us raise thousands for charity. Can you help us meet the next target?

Fuel Their Day is a deliciously smooth, chocolatey coffee created specially to support Only A Pavement Away, which helps people facing homelessness find employment in the hospitality trade.

With every pack sold, our customers donate 25p to the charity and we at Roast & Ground then match the donations, so that’s 50p per pack to Only A Pavement Away.



Our online shop is stocked with compostable, biodegradable and disposable options ready for next day delivery.



All Roast & Ground branded boxes are 70% recycled cardboard and are fully recyclable.



Electricity at our HQ is 100% renewable and we use thermostatic, timed heating controls.
