1: COLLECT WASTE
Simply collect used coffee bags or coffee capsules in any bag. You can open the coffee capsule and use the grinds for compost or send as is, but please try to dry capsules out as you can’t post wet parcels.

2: FREEPOST

When you’re ready to send a shipment to us, seal the bag, put it in any box, write our FREEPOST address on it, and drop it into your local post office.

3: SECOND LIFE

The returned bags and capsules are shredded to separate the coffee from the capsule. The bags and capsules are melted so they can then be used to make new products: playground benches for example, pretty cool, isn't it?
