55 million coffee capsules become landfill every single day in the world – that’s 20 billion coffee capsules a year! This figure is astounding and growing, and Pod Star is dedicated to helping address the problem with eco friendly products.
Former Nespresso boss Jean-Paul Gaillard has said that people using non-reusable, aluminium or plastic coffee capsules are choosing convenience over the environment – and believes recycling capsules is not the answer.
In Australia alone, over 3 million coffee pods are going to landfill every single day. The convenience of throwing it out is coming as a massive cost, however, and something as small as a coffee pod can make an immense difference. Much like the single-use plastic bag, it's time to address the single use coffee pod.
