If you're looking for a coffee break that leaves you with good vibes only, the capital of Finland is a good destination. In Helsinki, there are plenty of cafes that take extra measures in order to be responsible.

What can be better than kicking back and enjoying a nice cup of coffee and a cinnamon bun in a lovely cafe? Well, luckily in Helsinki, this experience can be improved by the sustainable cafes that you will find all around the capital. The choices in the city are abundant, and many establishments pay a lot of attention to make their footprints smaller.

The most central viewpoint in terms of cafes, is what's on offer. The more vegetarian choices we make, the better this is for the climate. Another major topic for responsible vendors is food waste.

Here's a selection of restaurants that have met the Think Sustainably criteria. When browsing, you'll always spot sustainable choices by their green tab.

Think Sustainably - what's that?

The Think Sustainably service helps everyone to choose more responsible ways of living in Helsinki, as well as enjoy the city on a sustainable holiday. It filters content from the website to suggest sustainable services, such as restaurants, shops, sights, events and accommodation. At the base of the service are tailor-made criteria for the city of Helsinki that have been developed together with the independent think tank Demos Helsinki, along with local interest groups and sustainability experts. The service is one example of Helsinki's commitment to promoting a more sustainable way of life - for everyone.
