Dualit has reduced packaging by over 50% since we started manufacturing Dualit and Nespresso® Compatible* capsules in the UK, in 2014. Coffee pods are viewed by some as wasteful, but we want to reassure customers that Dualit NX® capsules are 100% recyclable.
Our coffee pod packaging is made up of 4 components:
According to the British Plastics Federation (BPF), UK recyclers have stepped up to the challenge and in the last decade there has been increased recycling activity. As stated by the RECOUP Household Survey 2015, an increase of 12.1% of pots, tubs and trays were being recycled. It also records that 75% of UK local authorities collect pots, tubs and trays, so in our opinion you can still have your coffee and recycle it!
How about Compostable Capsules?
Dualit has taken it one step further and launched Compostable Single Origin Coffee Capsules. All you have to do is place the compostable capsules (the pod, lid and protective bag) in authorised collection scheme food waste bins for industrial composting**. The 100% compostable capsules will be broken down in approximately 90 days through the use of natural heat to become compost. Try our single origin blends now.
