Earth Day is approaching on April 22, and from April 18-24, Snooze, an A.M. Eatery is celebrating with its annual “1 Tree, 1 Snoozer” program.
Every Earth Day since 2017, Snooze has planted one tree for every Snoozer (a.k.a. employee). This year, Snooze is partnering with Trees for Houston and La Bolsa Coffee Farm, (Snooze’s coffee grower), in Guatemala to plant a total of 2,700 trees. 50 of the trees will be planted at Houston’s Hearne Elementary School, while the other 2,650 will be planted at the coffee farm.
100 percent of Snooze’s to-go and delivery orders are carbon neutral. Snooze supports a Regenerative Grasslands Project in southeastern Colorado, which helps capture harmful carbon in the air by converting it into helpful carbon in the soil. In 2021, Snooze removed 1,177 metric tons of carbon from the atmosphere, equating to three million miles not driven.
Snooze is donating $25,000 to the National Young Farmers Coalition, which is committed to equitably resourcing the next generation of working farms by advocating for policy change on issues such as climate change and land access.
Founded in Denver, Colo. in 2006, Snooze revitalized breakfast culture by bringing creativity and innovation to breakfast, along with an energetic and eclectic atmosphere and friendly service. Snooze prides itself on using its business and love for breakfast food as a platform to do good in every city it dwells within. While best known for its Pancake Flights and creative Eggs Benedicts, the eatery has been deeply committed to environmental responsibility since its inception. Snooze’s everyday green efforts include robust ingredient sourcing standards; water conservation efforts; composting; and Sustainability 101 training for all Snoozers.
