Importance of compostable coffee pods.

It's easy to see why coffee pods are so popular: they're quick, convenient and make a great cup of coffee every time, so they go really well with the quick pace of our modern times.

However, the environmental impact is a disaster with over 56,000,000,000 (that's 56 BILLION) being consumed around the world each year, with 350,000,000 capsules being thrown out every year in the UK alone, most of which end up in landfill and take up to 500 years to decompose!

Despite efforts to encourage recycling, hundreds of millions of plastic and aluminium pods are still being thrown away every year in Australia and globally.

 

 

What are our compostable coffee pods made of?

Our capsules are made using materials derived from sugar cane and sugar beet plants. They will fully decompose into compost under commercial composting conditions.

Unlike ordinary plastic or aluminium coffee pods, once you've used them they can be thrown in your organic waste bin provided by your local council. We recommend throwing them out with your organic waste so that they can be composted in a commercial composting plant so that the capsules decompose much more quickly.

 

Moving Beans Australia compostability credentials.

It takes between 12-16 weeks for the capsules to fully decompose. Composting at home is perfectly safe, and the pods won't release any harmful byproducts as they degrade, bit it will take longer because the right composting conditions - temperature, humidity, time of the year, location of your compost heap, amount of oxygen, amongst many other factors - influence the process.

TUV Austria OK compost certification - Moving Beans Coffee

 Finally, and perhaps most importantly, our capsules have been tested by TUV Austria and has been granted the certification of TUV-Austria - OK Compost and the Standards for Compostability EN13432.
