Local Action

Laughing Whale Coffee Roasters is a strong supporter of Farmers’ Markets. We began eighteen years ago in the Lunenburg Farmers’ Market, and have added two markets in  Halifax: the Halifax Brewery and the Seaport Farmers’ Markets. We value the direct relationships we have developed with our customers. These markets bring the community together to learn where their food actually comes from and how it was raised/produced – all in a lively, sociable atmosphere.

The Ecology Action Centre (EAC) is Nova Scotia’s most recognized independent community-based environmental organization. For over 50 years, EAC has worked tirelessly to build a healthier and more sustainable province. Their focus covers a wide spectrum of environmental issues including: marine, coastal, wilderness, food, transportation, energy and transportation.

Since 2007, Laughing Whale Coffee has donated .25 cents of every pound of retail coffee sold to help further their environmental initiatives.

In most human affairs, the idea is to think globally and act locally.
