For whatever reasons a lot of us use coffee capsules every day. We certainly understand that we are all busy and using capsules saves time without compromising taste. We all know that we should recycle the empty capsules but let’s be honest to ourselves: How many of us actually do it? Let’s change that neither comprising flavor nor practicability: 400mg is now offering compostable capsules filled with our high-quality, flavorful coffee.
The secret lies in the material used in our plant-based capsules. We make them entirely from sugarcane and sugar beet (sweet, right?). This means that under certain conditions the capsules will fully break-down into compost.
Most coffee capsules use an aluminium sachet to keep the coffee fresh, but we don’t. Aluminium not only leaves a nasty toxic trail after disposal, but is also non-renewable, and requires lots of energy and chemicals to produce. Instead, we have built in a plant-based oxygen barrier to keep our coffee fresh. This means that our entire capsule, can be chewed up, and spat out by our little microbial friends, leaving behind biomass, CO2 and water.
Unlike the plant-based plastics we use, most conventional coffee capsules are made from petroleum-based plastics. Microorganisms cannot digest these materials, and so a bit like us, they stay well clear of them!
