Nespresso Swiss Army Knives are fashioned from metals recovered from the coffee pods in an attempt to soften the damage the wasteful units cause the environment.
Billions of coffee pods end up in landfills each year and can take up to 500 years to decompose. Nespresso is trying to address this waste by partnering with company Terracycle to develop the multi-faceted tools from the left over pods. Users of Nespresso can opt to send their pods to a recycling center that will melt down the materials, fashioning new items, like swiss army knives from them.
The promote this service, which even covers the cost of shipping for the users, Nespresso's swiss army knives come printed with a limited edition coffee pod logo on the blade of the knife.
Nespresso Swiss Army Knives are Made from 24 Melted Coffee Pods
