To be a truly worthwhile solution, it's important that our compostable capsules meet the globally accepted certification standards.
All components of our capsule are certified Biodegradable, Compostable (industrial composting) and Biobased by TUV Austria.
Our capsules comply with the OK BIOBASED and OK COMPOST certifications awarded by TÜV Austria / Vincotte as a finished product.
Our capsule is also Aluminium-free; Bisphenol A-free and all components meet all food safety regulations.
Our capsules are certified compostable by the Australian Bioplastics Association under Australian Standard 4736-2006.
Our new compostable capsules are the latest technology. They are made from a plant based bio-plastic and are fully certified as being made from bio-based materials and compostable in industrial facilities.
They look good, they’ll work in your machine, they keep the coffee fresh and they’ll taste just great. We can also complete the loop and put them back to nature.
Compostable packaging (like our coffee capsules) is tested and certified to compost in large commercially managed facilities. We do not recommend trying to compost your used pods in your home compost heap or a worm farm.
We've got some easy as options so that you don't have to sweat about returning your used pods to nature.
If you live in the Auckland area, then we recommend getting a Benchtop Caddy from We Compost. Take a big step in the right direction and divert your compostable household waste, like food scraps and coffee pods, away from landfill and into making something good for New Zealand.
If you live in a part of New Zealand that has industrial composting collection facilities, and accepts compostable packaging, then you can drop your used pods into that system.
If you don’t, then Courier & Compost is the way to go.
Courier & Compost is designed to be simple - buy a return courier ticket when you purchase your compostable pods, enjoy your coffee and send your pods back to us. Too easy!
Courier & Compost tickets will only cost you the return courier fare. It’s all based on where you live in New Zealand.
This video shows just how easy it is to Courier & Compost
As you can see, it really is very easy.
Something That We Learned Very Quickly!
We recommend re-purposing a plastic tub to dry your capsules. If you put hot wet capsules in the green compostable bag then ..... it composts!
Here’s a really important point. We Compost accept our capsules because they are fully certified as compostable. You can See Our Certification here. We can’t be sure that other brands are certified so returns that have any mix of plastic, aluminium or other brand compostable pods will not be processed and will be sent to landfill. Sorry but them’s the rules in the composting game!
We collect them all up and send them to We Compost – Auckland’s leading compostable waste management company. They arrange for the pods to be correctly composted using industrial composting processes. The compost is then used in the forestry and agricultural sectors.
As a Kiwi business we are firm believers in ethical business practices, in particular, sustainability. At Coffee Capsules 2U, we don’t just talk the talk; we actually offer a practical composting solution for our coffee capsules.
As more and more Kiwis become mindful of their impact on the environment, we believe that it is important, as commercial suppliers of Nespresso® compatible coffee capsules, to offer our customers a legitimate solution for their used coffee pods. That used to be recycling our regular plastic capsules. In October 2019, the release of our latest technology compostable capsule allowed us to offer our customers a number of options to return their used capsules back to nature.
When considering the recycling or composting of coffee pods, it is important to note a couple of key things:
