Save the planet one cuppa at a time.
We’re sure that the last thing you’re thinking of when you pop your morning coffee pod into the machine is what goes into producing that little capsule of energy – even less when the aroma of fresh coffee fills your home. But the truth is that aluminium, which is what the standard pods are made of, impacts the environment at each stage of production, from extraction to processing. Refining and smelting emits greenhouse gas emissions and the by-products of processing result in acidic precipitation, which has harmful effects on plants, aquatic animals and infrastructure. Not to mention that it takes 200 years to fully decompose.
So what’s a coffee lover to do?
