3 LIMITED EDITION VELOSOPHY BIKES AVAILABLE TO WIN

Nespresso has collaborated with Swedish lifestyle bike brand, Vélosophy, to create a bicycle that is both stylish and sustainable. Made from recycled aluminium coffee capsules, the result is RE:CYCLE, a showcase of the possibilities of recycled aluminium.

250 SECOND LIFE COASTER SETS AVAILABLE TO WIN

The aluminium from your Nespresso capsules is infinitely recyclable. 45 recycled capsules have been repurposed into this coaster, perfect to use with your coffee. Each set includes 2 coasters.

Nespresso x Red Hong Yi Collaboration

Nespresso partners with Red Hong Yi, a contemporary artist to showcase the infinite possibilities of your used Nespresso coffee capsule. She has created a beautiful installation that is displayed in the show windows of Nespresso boutiques in Singapore termed Kaleidoscope.

Visit the Nespresso boutiques to view the installation.

Used capsules or infinite possibilities? Ask Red Hong Yi, a contemporary artist who transformed 24,000 used Nespresso capsules into a beautiful art installation at our Nespresso boutiques.
Each repeated piece of aluminium on the art installation, Kaleidoscope, symbolises the importance of the repeated action of recycling and reusing.
Kaleidoscope reflects the world of possibilities each recycled capsule can take to form something new and beautiful.
Have you seen the installation at your nearest Nespresso boutique?
#DoingisEverything

Make a difference, recycle 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 and pods 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.

WE ARE COMMITED TO CREATING A POSITIVE IMPACT

  • Making your cup fully carbon neutral by 2022
  • Reducing, reusing and recycling – including having all our capsules made using 80% recycled aluminum by the end of 2021
  • Supporting farmers’ livelihoods to ensure a stable and viable living from coffee
