DITCH PLASTIC

Lined up, the single serve coffee pods thrown away each year would be enough to circle the Earth more than 10 times. Less than 10% of plastic is recycled, and one recent study found that if we don't change our ways, the emissions from plastic will reach the equivalent of over 600 coal power plants by 2050 which could make it impossible to avoid catastrophic climate change.

It's Time To Wake Up & Make A Change

One day, when Mike was out surfing, he watched a plastic bag float by his board. He knew -right there and then- that Oakland Coffee needed to be part of the solution, not the problem. So we set out to find 100% compostable packaging...which didn’t exist. All of the big companies said it couldn’t be done. We thought that was a pretty trashy idea.

Revolutionizing Coffee Packaging

So we teamed up with a badass group of engineers and fellow revolutionaries to get the job done. It was a long road that wasn’t always easy. In 2017 our coffee bags were certified compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute, which made us the first coffee company to exclusively use fully certified compostable packaging.

OAKLAND COFFEE IS THE FIRST COFFEE COMPANY TO USE ONLY COMPOSTABLE BAGS & PODS

Less waste, No Plastic BS

Oakland Coffee's bags and pods are made out of compostable, plant-based materials, allowing you to compost our pods in an industrial composting facility, where available. (NOTE: These facilities may not be available in your area.)
