A little note on coffee pods…
You might like coffee pods for their convenience but did you know they take up to 500 years to biodegrade? Which means our landfill sights are quickly filling up. A fully recyclable alternative was yet to be invented. Until now.
Independent Brixton roaster, Volcano Coffee Works, have created their own range of 100% biodegradable pods. You can recycle them through your usual green waste collection or even chuck them onto your compost, as well as the rubbish bin, guilt-free. Check out their range of pods at www.volcanocoffeeworks.com.
