Doing more to do better

Producing products that meet a myriad of needs — and are better for our planet — is serious business at Pod Pack. From social and economic to environmental concerns, we take a holistic approach to being the best partner we can be.

The environment is everyone’s concern.

“Going green” isn’t a fad or phase. It’s a necessity, especially in an industry criticized for waste, and our commitment is strong and ongoing.

Recyclable product solutions

Our cartons and corrugate are recyclable, made from materials that would otherwise become municipal waste, but which can be collected, separated or processed and returned to the economic mainstream in the form of raw materials or products.

BPI-Certified compostable products

The Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) certifies “Industrial Compostable” products designed to fully biodegrade within a specified time in an industrial composting facility and leave no negative environmental residue. Every component of our coffee pods, including ink, adhesive, film, paper and coffee, is BPI-Certified Industrial Compostable.
