0% Plastic, 100% Coffee
Clear your skin with a powerful cream mixed just for you.
100% Plastic Free & Compostable
We are also using the world’s first bio-valve, made of WICOVALVE®, a 100% plant-based and compostable plastic alternative. The valve is a critical component of coffee packaging, allowing gases from freshly roasted coffee to release, while preventing air from entering and adversely affecting the coffee's quality.
All of these extra measures mean we’re proud to be the only sustainable, plastic-free speciality coffee company in the UK.
Our planet is drowning in plastic pollution. It is estimated that our oceans will contain more plastic than fish by 2050. 1.7 million tonnes of plastic packaging waste is generated each year by UK households, such as plastic water bottles, food containers, and shopping bags.
• Because of their low melting point, plastics cannot be recycled easily, resulting in huge landfills and plastic islands 3 times the size of France.
• Plastics break down into microplastics, contaminating the ground and water we live on and around, meaning we eventually ingest them into our bodies.
• Plastic pollution poses the greatest threat to our oceans. The diversity of our seas is being destroyed by plastic, from coral reefs to majestic whales.
• Plastics are largely made of fossil fuels and are incredibly damaging to the planet. Learn more about our other initiatives against the use of fossil fuels.
We know that individual actions alone cannot change the world. It is part of our sustainable mission to innovate and challenge traditional practices and players: that is what you are helping to support with Alpaca Coffee.
