DISCOVER SOMETHING ELSE WHEN YOU RECYCLE WITH NESPRESSO

Your last sip of coffee marks the beginning of its second life. The aluminium in every Nespresso capsule you recycle goes into the making of something useful again.

Make a difference, one pod at a time

Every recycling effort you make creates a positive impact.
What may seem used can be the start of a whole new chapter.
Your used Nespresso capsules and grounds are given a second life, when you return them for recycling.

From coffee to compost

Once separated from the aluminium casings, the used coffee grounds are collected and sent to a local urban vertical farm, Sky Greens Farm.

From compost to food

Used coffee grounds are used as nutrient-rich compost to grow fresh organic vegetables. Using coffee grounds improves drainage, aerates soil and acts as a natural pest repellent.

From aluminium to everyday objects

Nespresso capsules use aluminium, which is a material that is infinitely recyclable. Each capsule you recycle can be given a second life. The aluminium can be melted and reused in everyday objects such as pens, bicycle frames and much more.

Recycling your used capsules is easy

Be a part of our sustainability journey by requesting for a Recycling Bag when you purchase your coffee. Fill your Recycling Bag with used coffee capsules and pass it to the courier when he delivers your next order, or drop it off at our boutiques when you visit.
