Are Your Capsules Recyclable?
We are committed to ensuring sustainability throughout our operations and we recognise the need for an environmentally responsible approach to both the manufacture of our products, as well as the recyclability thereof. The design of the Espressotoria ® capsule in conjunction with our clever extraction system allows us to use a capsule shell weighing just 0.7 grams per unit. This makes the Espressotoria ® capsule one of the lightest weight aluminium free capsules currently in the market. Furthermore, the shells are made from Polypropylene #5, a plastic which is commonly recycled by most material recycling facilities in Australia*.
After extraction, peel off the lid and remove the used ground coffee (caution, allow capsule to cool down first in order to avoid risk of scalding). The used ground coffee can actually be an excellent addition to a compost pile. The grinds provide bacteria with the energy they need to turn organic matter into compost.
Please note that unfortunately our Nespresso** compatible capsule range is not recyclable yet at this time. However, we are continuously working with our supply chain partners to explore ways to improve the ecological footprint of our capsules, while adhering to our highest standards for product quality.
