Recycling Pact Coffee Bags
When it comes to recyclable packaging, we have good and bad news.
Presently, our paper/foil composite bags are recyclable in some areas, but not fully. Please check with your local council for options.
We know it may be frustrating to learn we don't currently have fully recyclable packaging - believe us when we say we are equally frustrated! Up until recently, we struggled to find a recyclable solution which guaranteed the freshness and quality of our coffee remained intact.
A solution is in the post!
We’re pleased to say that we’ve made huge progress in the last year, and we’re expecting to switch over to a fully recyclable bag in the second half of 2022.
We investigated compostable bags as these are now becoming popular on the market, but unfortunately this type of bag needs to be commercially composted, and not all councils offer food waste recycling so we decided an easily recyclable bag was a more accessible route for a sustainable solution to our packaging issues. Whilst we appreciate packaging free is always the better alternative, as a mail order subscription we hope this will be a major improvement to our sustainability credentials.
