Coffee Pod Recycling Scheme

Dispose of your used Nespresso or Lavazza Blue Pods ethically

Time for change

Until the likes of Nespresso and Lavazza jump on the ethical bandwagon and start using Eco-friendly Coffee Capsules then we are stuck with in an ethical dilemma - Coffee Pods or Not Coffee Pods?

While the Coffee Industry has a fairly good track record of introducing sustainable initiatives, there are a growing number of people who will not buy a Coffee Pod Machine because of a lack of sustainability of the actual Capsules.

Last year, independent consumer group 'Choice' reported that Nespresso had sold an estimated 28 billion capsules worldwide, about 28 million kilograms of aluminium, much of which may be sitting in landfill. Add to this the various plastic Pods that are increasingly becoming available and it is clear that there is an ECO headache on its way.

Our Coffee Pod and Capsule Recycling Pledge

Where appropriate, we will return all Coffee Pods to the manufacturer for recycling, and where this isn't possible we will store the pods and make sure they are delivered to the correct place for recycling.

Good News! Some coffee companies are making hints at the arrival of compostable coffee pods. Until the day comes when non-compostable coffee pods are completly irradiated Cafe Rico Ltd will continue to offer our free recycling scheme making the transition to sustainability a little smoother.
