Really? Consumers Want To Stay With Single-Use Plastic?

Really? Consumers Want To Stay With Single-Use Plastic?

February 01, 2020 1 Comment

We were shocked! Very shocked! Coca-Cola announced in Davos a few days back that “their consumers want to keep the single-use plastic bottles”. We really cannot believe that! Coca-Cola’s argument is that the consumers “like them because they reseal and are lightweight.”

It turns out that Coca-Cola, not surprisingly, is one of the world’s largest plastic polluters. It has been argued that many bottles go uncollected and therefore end up in landfill. Landfill, is a bad place for plastic to end up in because it takes decades for the plastic to decompose.

The hope of these large players, including Nespresso, is that their consumers do recycle. And Coca-Cola pledged a while back to ensure that their plastic bottles will all be recycled by 2030. Trouble is that recycling does not work with the daily routine of most consumers.

We believe that entirely novel solutions are needed; packaging solutions which give all the product benefits yet allow consumers to become sustainable. From a materials point of view, this is not easy as materials need to be resistant to water, often transparent and of course biodegradable, if not home compostable.

At Moving Beans, we have put a lot of research into developing novel materials which we believe will disrupt the packaging market. Based on ingredients from nature, we are using compostable material in our coffee capsules.

And the coffee is great too!

You won’t be disappointed. Lovely quality coffee without the guilt. Even if you currently return your nespresso capsules to them for reuse, there are so many resources being wasted. Transportation, sorting, cleaning and reconditioning metal capsules all cost our planet. Compostable is the only sustainable way forward for all dried goods!

Are you getting tired of working out or keeping yourself from eating foods that are not included in your diet plan? Too tiring, isn't it? Especially when we are surrounded by things that keep us from doing so.

We sometimes think that losing weight is not for us. Most of us just accept the fact that we eat a lot, whether what we're eating is healthy or not, for the reason that we can't have any of those anymore the moment we are dead. That is why we resort to things that put us in danger just to achieve our ideal weight. And I don't think you want to go through that, right? In this article, we will tackle a drink that is pretty popular around the world; and that is coffee.
