The truth about compostable coffee pods

WE ARE ALL MAKING BETTER CHOICES, BUT ARE THEY THE RIGHT ONES?

We are so pleased to see that more of you are becoming environmentally conscious and are making small changes to your daily habits & consumption.

 

COMPOSTABLE PODS

The market for compostable pods has boomed in the last few years. With more of us making a conscious effort to do out part for the environment, more and more companies have jumped on the compostable pod wagon.

It seems that lot's of you don’t mind spending a little more for eco-friendly, biodegradable or compostable coffee pods.

 

THE PROBLEM WITH COMPOSTABLE/BIODEGRADABLE PODS

Here is what you may not know: the problem with many biodegradable or compostable options on the market is that they'll only decompose in industrial composting facilities within a sufficient timeframe.

Therefore, putting them in your compost bin at home or throwing in your rubbish bin sadly will mean these pods won't decompose like you think.

So if your coffee capsules aren't headed to an industrial composting facility, your capsules are potentially doing as much harm as a regular single-use, plastic disposable capsule would.

 

SWITCH TO REUSABLE PODS

The only way to know for sure that you are REALLY doing your bit for the environment is to reuse! SealPod really is the answer when it comes to changing your daily coffee pod habit.
