Cof­fee’s strong so­cial con­science

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By DENISE S. CAHILL

IAN Thubron is in­spired by the sense of “col­lab­o­ra­tion” be­tween busi­nesses that have thrown sup­port be­hind new so­cial en­ter­prise Com­mu­nity Pod.

The Ti­tan Dig­i­tal di­rec­tor and his Su­bi­aco team de­vel­oped the brand­ing, logo, mar­ket­ing and web­site for the busi­ness founded by Mark Gro­gan and his part­ner Me­gan Wat­son.

Com­mu­nity Pod is an on­line busi­ness sell­ing cof­fee pods and beans, with cus­tomers able to do­nate 10c from ev­ery pod and $3 from ev­ery 1kg of cof­fee beans to their cho­sen char­ity.

“The value of what we have given in the mar­ket is about $25,000 but that aside, we are proud to sup­port such a wor­thy cause,” Mr Thubron, of Mos­man Park, said.

Com­mu­nity Pod was born when Mr Gro­gan and Ms Wat­son put their heads to­gether to cre­ate a busi­ness that helped char­i­ties.

“Char­i­ties are strug­gling for resid­ual in­comes right now,” Mr Gro­gan said.

“The av­er­age house­hold will do­nate $170 a year to a char­ity of their choice.”

The cof­fee pods are also biodegrad­able, break­ing down within 180 days. Visit www.com­mu­ni­ty­pod.com.au.
