Pact Pods are made of PP (polypropylene) plastic. Each piece of your pod - including the capsule and foil seal - is recyclable but will need to be separated. To do this, simply peel off the foil, scoop out the grounds (coffee grounds are great as compost!) and pop each part in its right place.
We understand that some customers have concerns about the impact of pods on the environment and we would really love it if we could produce biodegradable pods, but the technology just isn’t there yet. The biodegradable pods that are currently available don’t seal in freshness and would produce a sub-par cup of coffee. We’re keeping on top of all the advancements in biodegradable pods and hopefully we’ll get there soon.
