When we discovered that most communities have access to recycling, it was clear that a pod made from recyclable polypropylene #5 plastic was the best solution for today’s market. And of course, #5 still gave us the ability to deliver the great tasting coffee you’ve come to expect.
Because recycled #5 plastic is in such high
demand, more community recycling programs are
seeking this plastic out. While you’ve been filling
up those bins, we’ve been working closely with
recyclers to make sure they’re ready to sort and
recycle our pods and other small format plastics.
And together, we’re finding new ways to
transform recycling across North America.
Since 2011, we’ve been collecting used K-Cup® pods from businesses throughout North America. We turn the grounds into compost and the pods into energy, creating positive change from the grounds up.
