ECOLOGICAL PRODUCTS

We prioritize ecologically or organically cultivated products. These include, for example, organic tea varieties from Asia, our own coffee brand Bocafé, and our refreshing drink yootea, which bears the European organic label.

THE ESSENTIALS IN BRIEF: 

  • yootea consists entirely of organically cultivated ingredients and proudly bears the European organic label.
  • Tea from Asia is also organically cultivated.
  • Bocafé beans are obtained from Rainforest-Alliance-certified coffee farms that make an ecological and social contribution.
  • Bio Bears and Sours contain organically cultivated ingredients

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PACKAGING & WASTE DISPOSAL

We use environmentally friendly packaging and regularly assess our consumption with regard to possible reductions.

THE ESSENTIALS IN BRIEF: 

  • Plastic covers are recycled by means of proper waste processing.
  • Cleaning agents that we use have a proven lower environmental impact, contain fewer hazardous substances and come in recyclable packaging material.
  • Placemats are made of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) paper from certified forestry.
  • Takeaway cutlery is based on vegetable starch that is also heat-resistant and rigid as a result of a crystallization process.
  • Carrier bags are also made from FSC-certified paper.
  • Takeaway packaging is made from compostable and biodegradable cornstarch, as well as PET.

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SUPPLY

In all Yooji’s establishments, we use fair, green electricity from Swiss hydropower. The generation of electricity in hydropower plants makes a significant contribution to climate protection, as it is completely CO2-neutral. The environmental impact of run-of-river power plants is also only minor.
