Single-serve is actually the most eco-conscious way to enjoy coffee from the perspective of carbon footprint and preservation of natural resources, issues that we believe are what ultimately matter. This is because single-serve uses less coffee, which means less resources used - water, amount of forests burned, as well as other natural resources. It also is more energy efficient.
But to address the very real issues of plastic waste, we designed B-Pods™ with two options for disposal: recyclability in communities that accept this type of packaging, or even better, an ingenious solution - the Guilt Free Toss™ - that enables B-Pods to simply be tossed in the trash. That's because B-Pods are uniquely designed to substantially break down in a landfill much more rapidly than untreated plastics, through an organic process that leaves no microplastics behind. In applicable landfills, B-Pods can also play a role in Landfill Gas to Energy projects, creating renewable energy and bringing enhanced end-of-life value. More information is available at bruvi.com/brewedforgood.
Additionally, we will also offer a reusable pod that can be filled with any coffee.
All of these options reflect our efforts to offer practical solutions that reflect the existing infrastructure for recycling and waste disposal.
