How is Climate Cup Different?
Climate Cup is an on demand coffee system like many of the popular plastic cartridge systems available today. The difference is Climate Cup produces zero waste. You get certified fair trade organic 100% arabica coffees that are micro-roasted in small fresh batches in many different blends to please all tastes. When done, the entire Climate Cup goes into the compost. The bag is 100% biodegradable and has been produced to be a small as possible to reduce our impact on the environment.
It is the most environmentally friendly solution available for single cup coffee on demand.
Nothing goes to waste, it’s all compostable or recyclable.
Costs Less – The Climate CupTM system is priced less than the popular plastic cartridge systems.
Choice – wide range of our coffees to suit every taste.
Consistent – you’ll get the same great coffee each and every time.
Fair Trade Coffee – Fair Trade coffees ensures farmers are compensated fairly for their hard work and ensures them a better quality of life for their families.
Organic Coffee – produced without the aid of certain additives or some pesticides and herbicides.
Freshest Coffee Available – Beans are micro-roasted fresh each week.
Taste – No plastic residue taste left in your mouth.
You are helping the environment by composting instead of adding plastic to the landfill.
Environmental basics dictate that we should follow the three “R’s”. Climate Cup has been developed with these principles in mind.
Priority #1: Reduce
Climate Cup uses much less packaging material per pound of coffee than any other single cup coffee system available on the market today. This represents a huge reduction in the conversion of natural resources that would have been used in packaging; keeping those resources where they belong – in nature.
Priority #2: Reuse
Once the Climate Cup has been used to brew a delicious premium coffee for your enjoyment, its usefulness has not ended. The spent coffee and paper filter are one of the best materials available for composting, in both municipal and residential sites. Where municipal composting is available, Climate Cup spent pods are always accepted – no questions asked. And if you are a backyard gardener with a composter, you will find they are an ideal addition to the mix of biomass necessary for rich black earth.
Priority #1: Recycle
Recycling takes energy to convert used material into new material. While the energy used is less than what is required to take virgin raw material and convert it to finished product the fact remains energy must be applied in any recycling operation. The Climate Cup bags are made with a special material designed to preserve the freshness of the product while closed but also to biodegrade once discarded. Typical packaging material worthy of preserving freshness usually comes with a cost to the environment in the sense that they are not easily recyclable nor biodegradable. Climate Cup bags are both. The structure of the material has been designed to break down into carbon and hydrogen leaving no residue of the original packaging over a period of about 4 years in a municipal waste facility. No energy is applied during this process, just the workings of moisture and Mother Nature.
If you are concerned about preserving our environment for generations to come, making the right choices in every day decisions will have a positive impact on how we will live tomorrow.
