Coffee capsules are very convenient and go well with the quick pace of our modern times. They're quick, easy to use, and consistently make a great cup of coffee. However, the environmental impact is a disaster.
Despite efforts to encourage recycling, hundreds of millions of plastic and aluminium pods are being thrown away every year in the UK and globally.
Over 300,000,000 aluminum and plastic coffee capsules are used in the UK alone each year. Most of them (up to 95%) go straight to landfill without a second thought, even with the recycling programs that are put in place.
So despite the efforts to encourage recycling, across the world billions of plastic and aluminium pods are just being thrown away each year. To make this worse, aluminium and plastic capsules can take over 500 years to break down.
Even when it does happen, recycling is at best it's a very difficult process (and sometimes it's completely impossible!) The plastic and aluminium capsules are made of several layers of specialized materials. This is necessary since the brewing process needs the pods to be strong enough to withstand immense heat and pressure.
But Moving Beans is coming to the rescue! Our fully compostable and biodegradable coffee capsules take as little as 5 months to fully break down - the same amount of time as it takes for an orange peel to decompose!
This was a difficult engineering problem to solve, mainly because the coffee capsules need to be made to withstand the heat and pressure from the machine, but also because it's difficult to create a biodegradable plastic that can create a full seal and keep the coffee fresh. But after months of planning, designing and testing, we've done it.
What's more is that they’re completely safe to throw out into your compost or domestic food waste bins.
But we haven't forgotten to the other vital component: great coffee. While the clever scientists on our team went to work on making a sustainable coffee capsules, the coffee connoisseurs went on a mission to source some of the World's best coffees. The result is the World's finest coffees packed in fully-sustainable coffee capsules that always keep the coffee fresh - and you can get it right here from Moving Beans!
We’re just helping the environment one cup of coffee at a time. We hope you enjoy!

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.
One of the health benefits of drinking coffee is that it improves your memory for a short time, due to the caffeine in it. It also reduces the risk of having Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Have you noticed students drinking coffee while reviewing? That’s what it’s all about, to remember better the day of the examination!
