Seal Pod Reusable Nespresso Capsules Review
Nespresso Capsule Recycling – Going One Step Further
One of the most important talking points of our time is climate change and the methods we use to reduce our waste and carbon footprint. Coffee capsules / coffee pods are no exception and have increasingly come under scrutiny. With Nespresso, you get simplicity and also achieve a very consistent taste in your coffee – but it will be no surprise to many when we say that convenience often comes at a cost.
Nespresso once said they reached a “75% recycling capacity commitment” in a press release during September 2012. However, their commitment was to increase their capacity – this means they have the ability to recycle 75% of Nespresso coffee capsules. In reality, this is unlikely to happen – users have to return their Nespresso capsules at dedicated service centres, and this number requires the vast majority if not all Nespresso users to do this.
This means that a lot of Nespresso capsules get put in the trash, and end up in landfill. These capsules are made out of aluminium, which are far more energy intensive to make than steel, for example. Even though each capsule is small, the millions consumed each year inevitably add up. So what’s the solution – or, in today’s society, what’s the solution that we can adopt easily?
Enter Seal Pod.
Our Experience Using Seal Pod with Nespresso Coffee Machines
Even though Nespresso have an excellent range of in-house flavours, being able to choose single-origin coffees from elsewhere and new blends from our favourite coffee shop was great. When added to the fact that we were helping to reduce waste as well, it really made our experience with Seal Pod that much more enjoyable. Even though we like Nespresso’s normal flavours, we would highly recommend Seal Pod!
