Why Coffee Lovers of the World Need Compostable Coffee Capsules

As a nation of caffeine addicts, you won't be surprised to learn that, on average, the British population drinks 55 million cups of coffee per day. That’s an incredible amount of coffee and, as you can imagine, it creates an incredible amount of waste. With 80% of us visiting high street coffee shops at least once a week, our nation’s dependence on a brew to get us up and raring to go every morning is causing some serious waste management issues.

The good news is that there’s an environmentally friendly solution to this epidemic - making coffee at home. Single-serve coffee capsules are available - allowing coffee lovers to enjoy a delicious home brew while reducing their waste. With this in mind, many forward-thinking coffee brands like Novell Coffee are saying no to waste by introducing biodegradable and 100% compostable environmentally friendly coffee capsules to their product ranges.

The solution, then, looks to be single-serving eco-friendly coffee capsules. Not only is eco-friendly coffee becoming more and more popular, but there’s also a thriving market for single-serving pod machines - particularly with millennials, who comprise 16% of the overall coffee market. As compostable and biodegradable coffee capsules become more and more widely available, and increasingly popular among coffee drinkers, we can take steps towards dramatically reducing the impact of coffee consumption on the environment.

You may have some questions concerning exactly how to recycle coffee capsules that you can use at home, but what’s amazing about environmentally friendly coffee capsules is that they’re incredibly easy to recycle. Coffee pod recycling is as easy as emptying the capsule of any remaining coffee grounds, rinsing the pod and throwing it in either the recycling bin or the compost bin - depending on which variant you buy. And with Novell Coffee’s 100% compostable capsules, all you’ll need to do is throw used pods into either the garden waste or organic waste bin, depending on where you live.

So, what are you waiting for? Get your hands on a capsule machine and some compostable coffee capsules and start saving the planet!
