Animal Rights

Revolver is pleased to have on its board Labour Animal Welfare activist Malcolm Butt MBE, who has campaigned on issues such as the fur -trade http://www.labouranimalwelfaresociety.org.uk/2013/02/report-from-manchester-conference-and-wolverhampton-campaign-stand/ Malcolm is a keen advocate on behalf of Vegetarian and Vegan issues.

Revolver’s policy is to source coffee cherries from farms that actively encourage biodiversity, by leaving their fields fallow at the field-edge. This encourages
butterflies, birds and small mammals, particularly where the hedgerow is allowed to cultivate without intervention.

We take a stand against GM and over 60% of our products are classified organic. We support the policy of farms using the coffee cherries as fertilisers rather than intervening with chemical fertilisers.

Revolver World Coffee supports children in Birmingham,

This Christmas Revolver World will support disadvantaged children of Birmingham, together with some others businesses

“Fourteen Birmingham businesses took part in Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s Big Give Challenge this Christmas enabling hundreds of local disadvantaged children to enjoy a trip to the theatre during the festive season.

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is a national annual fundraising event which offers donors the chance to double the value of their gifts through a two day donation challenge. This December, together with matched giving from the Big Give, generous Birmingham businesses donated over £13,000 towards The REP’s education and community work.

 

The businesses that took on the challenge were: Barclays, Binding Site, Ellisons, Grosvenor Casinos, Jaguar Landrover, JLT, Just Good Food, Lloyds, Pertemps, Pinsent Masons, Revolver Coop, RBS, Shakespeare Martineau and Wragges. Between them they raised £13,386 and as a result over 260 local school children will get to see a performance of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe at The REP this Christmas with some enjoying a special relaxed performance specifically tailored for children with severe learning difficulties.

Schools to benefit from the generosity include: Birches Green Infant School, Hillstone Primary, John Newman Catholic School, Mayfield Special School, Nansen Primary, St Matthew’s Primary and Storywood School.

As well as enabling children to enjoy a trip to the theatre this Christmas the money raised is also a huge boost to The REP’s ongoing education and community work and will benefit more young children in the local community through various projects in the new year.”

A little place generating big ideas!

A little place generating big ideas!

Further proof that there are not many places too small for a coffee shop as one of the smallest coffee shops in Birmingham has recently opened up – inside a telephone box!

“I wanted to bring something different to the city. The red boxes are iconic to our image as Brits.” Jake Hollier

The coffee shop was rented by Jake Hollier and is rather fittingly called Jake’s Coffee Box, It’s located in Eden Place near Colmore Row, Birmingham.

Somewhere else thinking outside the box is Brighton’s Pavilion Gardens where two phone boxes have recently been utilised to sell Coffee and Ice cream.

What a great idea it is to keep these iconic landmarks useful and appealing for busy commuters.
