23 Examples of Eco-Friendly Coffee Packaging

From Compostable Coffee Pods to Boxed Cold Brew

— February 14, 2017 — Eco
These examples of eco-friendly coffee packaging are designed with both convenience and environmental responsibility in mind. With coffee pod waste at an all time high, products like dissolvable java capsules -- like those used in conjunction with the Droops Coffeemaker -- aim to reduce environmental impact while still offering convenient high quality coffee conveniently at home.

Additionally, compostable coffee pods and plantable coffee containers that are fully biodegradable also aim to reduce environmental impact caused by non-recyclable packaging options.

Other eco-friendly coffee packaging innovations to take note of include boxed cold brew blends that are ready to serve to a large group, along with artisanal coffee bags that ensure freshness while creating a minimal impact on the planet.
