Coffee and environment

Plastic waste is the global problem since before, different solutions and ways had been suggested by everyone, but the great question is, are we doing our part to protect our natural environment?

The fight against plastic pollution is being hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, as the use of disposable masks, gloves and other protective equipment soars. However, plastic does not inherently make something clean and safe.

Today, we produce about 300 million tonnes of plastic waste every year. Pods take up to 500 years to breakdown. Made from a combination of plastics and aluminium with organic matter inside, almost all coffee capsules sold on the shelf are not biodegradable.

It takes 150 to 500 years for aluminium and plastic coffee pods to breakdown in landfill. (abc.net.au)

It’s easy to make a tangible contribution to reducing landfill if we reuse and recycle our plastic and metallic waste. You can do your part with confidence using Reflo Podpress, to create a clear path to sustainability in your household when it comes to using coffee capsules.
