At Tye Dye Café, all their coffee is sourced from Electric City Roasters. This coffee is roasted right in northeast PA an d is also direct and fair trade. With the help of Cindy’s granddaughters there is very little waste in this business. Water jugs and paper are reused for girl-scout crafts and signs. They also minimize their heating and cooling needs at Tye Dye by adjusting the outside awning regularly depending on weather conditions.

Largest waste: Coffee grounds are composted. “Why waste?”
