REUSING USED ALUMINIUM TO PROTECT YOUR COFFEE

Our goal is to have the full Nespresso Original Line and Vertuo range of coffee capsules made using 80% recycled aluminium. This is part of our continued journey towards circularity, going further to minimize waste and maximize reuse of product materials.

Aluminium is infinitely recyclable and is one of the most widely recycled materials in the world. Recycled aluminium requires less energy to produce than a virgin product. Aluminium also optimally protects the freshness and aromas of high-quality coffee, providing a perfect barrier against oxygen, light and humidity.

Infinitely recyclable

Perfect barrier to:

THE STORY CONTINUES

What happens to the Nespresso capsule after the last drop of coffee? More than just coffee, it embarks on a purposeful journey and blossoms into something else.

When you recycle your Nespresso capsules, the aluminium can be transformed into new aluminium objects. Infinitely recyclable, it could be transformed into an everyday object such as a pen, bicycle, or a pair of chopsticks.

Discover the endless possibility of recycled aluminium with these second-life objects.
