¿QUÉ SIGNIFICA COMPOSTABLE? | Elixir Café

WHAT DOES COMPOSTABLE MEAN?

At Elixir we care about the environment and try to ensure that all our decisions reflect our intention to contribute to combat climate change that's affecting coffee cultivation and our entire planet.

Upon entering the coffee market in Spain, we discovered that 70% of Spaniards consume coffee in capsules at home. It is a huge number, considering that only 10% confess to properly recycling capsules that are normally made out of plastic or aluminum and can take up to 500 years to decompose.

If we think about the amount of waste that this consumption habit generates, it is imperative to look for alternatives and at ELIXIR we bet on COMPOSTABLE CAPSULES.

But what does the term compostable really mean??

To understand it, we start by explaining what biodegradable means. When we say that something is biodegradable, we mean something that decomposes in nature through contact with microorganisms.

 

A compostable material, is a biodegradable material, but that, thanks to the action of men, it decomposes in a much shorter period of time. It also becomes natural compost.

Therefore, everything compostable is biodegradable but not everything biodegradable is compostable.

Our Elixir capsules are 100% compostable and compatible with Nespresso machines. You can and should throw them in your organic bin and they break down over a period of 4-12 weeks.

Join the ECO FRIENDLY and SUSTAINABLE movement and do your bit for the future of our planet #noplanetb

No hay nada mejor que empezar la mañana con un delicioso café y el silencio del hogar, minutos antes de empezar las rutinas cotidianas. Pero no hay nada peor, que la preparación del café en casa resulte en un mal sabor o un café quemado, que, en consecuencia, termine truncando el día.
