All Blue Coffee Box packaging is 100% compostable. We think this may be a first for the UK. And, in a world of ecology-destroying coffee shop cups, coffee pods and plastic-lined supermarket coffee bags, every company has a responsibility to do better.
Let's clear up one point. Biodegradable or compostable? Our packaging is actually compostable. However, if you put coffee bags into your green bins, your waste collectors don't have time to read labels and you may get questioned, or more. If you put it in the standard bins, it will compost in landfill. That's why we choose not to call it "compostable" - even though it is.
Blue Coffee Box EcoBox. You'd think that a cardboard box is OK. But, what about the ink? What about the Glue? What about the sealing tape? These are often chemical or plastic-based. It all makes a difference.
Our EcoBox is certified Plastic Free. It can be composted safely, and fast. Blue Coffee Box worked with our box manufacturer to be better for the environment.
Our EcoPack envelope is also Plastic Free. While using a similar card stock to our EcoBox, we use a post-consumer recycled fibre material into our envelope. And, again, there is no plastic red-tear-strip, or chemical glue or chemical printing inks.
Coffee is a fresh food. It needs to be packaged to reduce air, moisture, light, and, being fresh roasted, a coffee valve to expel the CO2. Standard packaging needs an aluminium liner, an invisible plastic lining inside the aluminium to enable heat sealing, and a plastic coffee valve.
Our EcoBag has found the solution. A combination of very specialised materials has found the perfect balance of packaging that keeps your fresh-roasted coffee in perfect condition and is easily compostable.
