Zero-Waste Coffee System Meets Demand for Sustainability
Single-serve coffee systems continue to gain popularity.
According to a 2014 National Coffee Association report, the use of single-serve brewing systems continues to rise due to convenience and efficiency. For offices and hotel lobbies especially, single-serve machines eliminate any instances of leftover, unused coffee. With the additional option to recycle SolaCap capsules through maker SolaBev’s partnership with recycling company TerraCycle, businesses have the ability to eliminate coffee-related waste altogether. TerraCycle will handle the sorting and processing of used SolaCaps: Any leftover coffee grounds are composted, and the plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products. www.solabev.com, www.terracycle.com
