At the Posh Coffee Club we want to make sure we are doing our bit for the environment.
Our capsules are manufactured from Polypropylene (PP/EVOH/PP) which can be recycled into new products or alternatively can be incinerated to produce energy.
The different materials need to be separated for recycling – plastic, foil & coffee. Rinse out the capsule before recycling.
The capsules can be recycled along with other type 1 and 2 containers, which include detergent containers, milk, soft drink, juice, cooking oil and water bottles.
The foil is made of aluminium and can be recycled along with aluminium cans.
The coffee can be used to produce a composite. Coffee is an organic substance & can be used in some of the following ways:
• Sprinkle used grounds around plants for a slow-release nitrogen.
• Add to compost piles to increase nitrogen balance.
• Mix with water for a gentle, fast-acting liquid fertilizer.
• Mix into soil for houseplants or new vegetable beds.
We also recommend Terra Cycle to collect and send in your used coffee and tea accessories. This diverts them from landfill and gives them a sustainable, end-of-life solution. You can now purchase Zero Waste Boxes from TerraCycle. Click on the logo below to find out more.
At the Posh Coffee Club we actively reduce food waste by donating short dated stock to AOK foods.
A-OK Foods sell perfectly good food which is short dated or past it’s best before date.
