New Hyde Park coffee shop emphasizes sustainability, raises money for fellow Hyde Park charity

KANSAS CITY, Mo.Mother Earth Coffee will celebrate its grand opening at the new 2,000-square-foot coffee shop on Earth Day (Saturday, April 22)
showcasing the brand’s commitment to community recycling and in-house sustainability.

Kansas City’s first stand-alone Mother Earth Coffee shop officially opened in late January inside the International at 3504 Gillham giving the local coffee brand its first retail location outside of a hospital. The new coffee shop has an intentional focus on sustainability and leaving as little impact on the environment as possible. Offering three large bins for recycling, glass and compost, Mother Earth Coffee hopes to eliminate all items going to a landfill.

In addition, neighbors can collect coffee grounds for flower beds, use burlap from coffee bags for ground cover to use in community gardens, and will be invited to participate in a community organics recycling program. The café has recently begun to donate its day-old bakery items to its Hyde Park neighbor, Cornerstones of Care.

The coffee shop faces Gillham Road and is inside the newly renovated 1960s building called The International. The location serves both residents and businesses within the retail and apartment complex as well as the neighboring community of Hyde Park and beyond.
