Our bit for the Environment
Choosing the right packaging for our coffee was a challenge, but we remained committed to finding an option that works with our coffee and aligned with our environmental values.
We believe in using practical, earth-friendly methods in every part of our work, how we connect with others, where we get our stuff, and how we package it. Being eco-friendly isn’t just a saying; it’s something we practice daily. We take small, sensible steps every day to meet our eco-goals and do good in the coffee industry.
Our compostable bags
PS: our 1Kg bags are not compostable yet, but they will be soon!
What it means for you
Are these bags home or industrially compostable? And what does it mean?
A home compostable material is one that can be added to your household compost bin, where it will decompose alongside your leftover fruits and vegetables, within a 90-day timeframe. In order for packaging to be considered home compostable, all its components, including printed ink and adhesives, must also naturally break down without leaving any harmful substances.
An industrially compostable material necessitates specific conditions for rapid and complete breakdown. Industrial composting facilities simulate a higher temperature environment, accelerating degradation and ensuring complete disappearance of the material without any harmful residues.
Our new 250g bags are certified industrially compostable, which means that after use (remove all labels first), they can be taken to a facility that will break them down and speed up the composting process. While they can still decompose in a home setting, they may not achieve the 90-day benchmark required for home compostability.
In conclusion, compostable materials, whether designed for home or industrial composting, offer a substantial environmental advantage over other packaging options available. Compostable packaging provides assurance that regardless of the disposal method, it will not cause any lasting or harmful effects on the environment.
