Environmental Responsibility


BILLIONS of K-cups — ZERO recycled.

Single-cup coffees are the latest trend because they offer a perception of greater quality and freshness. But this trend is being challenged by its obvious impact on the environment. Over 3 Billion K-cups are produced each year, and even more when you add in pods and capsules. None are recycled.

Made of non-degradable plastic and a sheet of tin foil, these billions of K-cups are simply dumped into landfills. Metallic capsules are no better. Each Nespresso capsule contains 1 gram of aluminium; 13 of them equal a soda can. None are recycled.
