While we’re all operating our Nespresso machines with one eye open in the mornings and desperate for that hot coffee, something else is happening. We are throwing used Nespresso pods into the garbage, they’re being transferred into landfill and this is not sustainable.

Now, without making this sound like a greenpeace pitch, Nespresso have a really simple solution for this recycling issue. Send them back.

Nespresso has partnered with Australia Post to allow you to throw up to 130 used pods into a satchel and into an Australia Post box. These pods will then properly recycled which is better for the environment. No need for a hippy movement, just a different way of disposing your used pods.

The satchels sadly aren’t free, but the postage is. For $1.90 these satchels hold 130 pods and the costs end there. Our suggestion is to throw a few into your next coffee capsule order and the rest is rather easy.
