WHY COMPOSTABLE

SOMETHING CAN ALWAYS BE DONE

Approximately 1 in 8 American households has a single-serve coffee brewer, and in 2014 nearly 12 billion single-serve  coffee pods were sold. Lined up, the single serve coffee pods thrown away each year would be enough to circle the Earth more than 10 times. 

But it isn’t hopeless.

That’s why Oakland Coffee pods are made out of compostable, plant-based materials, allowing you to compost our pods in an industrial composting facility, where available (these facilities may not be available in your area). 

Choosing compostables shows a commitment to leaving a smaller footprint on the environment. You’re sending the message that all single-use packaging can and should be made from renewable materials. You are joining the revolution and triggering a change for good in your community and beyond.
