Millions of tons of plastic packaging waste is generated from the coffee industry and Alpaca Coffee is on a mission to decrease this staggering number as a 100% plastic-free coffee company. The company's plastic-free coffee bags are plant-based, made from completely renewable natural resources and fully compostable—including everything from the lining to the zipper closure. The material that Alpaca Coffee works with is called NatureFlex and it's made from wood pulp, which means it's heat sealable and permeable against moisture.
In its compostable, plastic-free bags, Alpaca Coffee shares single-origin South American coffees that are roasted in the UK. The company is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter and sharing plastic-free perks with backers like limited-edition KeepCups.
