Compostable is the way forward.

 

Roar Gill coffee capsules use a cutting-edge cornstarch-based
bioplastic that is certified to be 100% compostable
along
with all our packaging.

 

We work with leading compostable packing designers whose
project is backed by the European Union.

In practice, recycling isn’t the eco-friendly option it appears.

 

Recently Nespresso estimated a 21% recycling rate for
their collection service. Other capsule
companies don’t publish
any recycling rates.
It makes us think the numbers are equally low.

 

To recycle plastic and aluminium capsules, the customer must cut open
the capsule and wash out the grounds or the pods won’t be recycled.

 

This option seems like hard work compared to our compostable capsules. Coffee Pods
that are not recycled create significant environmental damage.

 

We would prefer to build our ideas concerning sustainability into every pod, rather than asking
our customers to do the work for us – we know your lives are busy.

 

Everything we make disappears without a trace.

 

 

We also consider the Energy we use.

The manufacturing of the capsule itself is from renewable energy resources only.
We also carbon offset 29,603 sea miles moving our coffee from where it is grown.

Our capsules have a lower carbon footprint and energy consumption
than other capsules on the market. These reductions in emissions also mean
we have a lower carbon footprint than using regular beans.

There is so much more to do in this area - supply chains are complicated and C02
emissions permeate everywhere. Road transport is continues to be a major issue
in terms of carbon neutrality, postal services and moving coffee for warehousing.

We are not yet where we want to be, but we look at every aspect of
what we do, and will make a change whenever we find a practical sustainable solution.
