Terra Cycle - “TerraCycle® is a social enterprise on a mission to eliminate the idea of waste.”

Green Barista is proud to offer a free composting and recycling program. We have taken up a tough stance on the topical environmental issue of plastic and non-recyclable materials that end up in our oceans, and largely, our ecosystems. A brighter future for generations to come is the purpose of this partnership as we also recognise that this effort cannot be singular, but must be collective.

TerraCycle offers free recycling programs funded by brands, manufacturers, and retailers around the world to help you collect and recycle your hard-to-recycle waste. By collecting in your home, school, office or workplace it becomes easy to stay sustainable and send your waste to designated addresses via shipping labels.

The Green Barista range will be completely down-stream waste free, how do we do it? Well, by having a key strategic relationship with Terra Cycle, we guarantee that all coffee bags and coffee pods are suitable for either recycling or industrial composting. The first step was to design a product that had the capability of being responsible, the second step was to use an existing system that had shown its success on a global scale. That system is the TerraCycle Zero Waste system, that makes it easy to return your waste to designated depots so your single use packaging items can be placed back into the supply chain for sustained and cyclical use.

When you shop with Green Barista, you have already purchased the shipping labels to return your product to the supply chain. These labels come with your purchase so that when you are done with your coffee bags and/or pods, you simply place them into the box you received the coffee in, download free shipping labels, place the label on the box and return to sender!
