Must read

TORONTO, Canada — Club Coffee welcomes the Ontario government announcement that municipalities should now include certified compostable coffee pods in their food waste diversion programs under the province’s updated Food and Organic Waste Policy Statement.

“Ontario government support for compostable coffee pods including Club Coffee’s PurPod100™ is a game-changer,” said Club Coffee CEO John Pigott . “We look forward to working with municipal waste leaders to make this decision work for everyone, as we all listen to consumers who want better answers to plastic waste and food waste. Now, certified compostable coffee pods are being treated like tea bags and coffee filters.”

Club Coffee is a Canadian business celebrating the production of its 1 billionth PurPod100™. This milestone represents the diversion of more than 3,000 tonnes of plastic single-serve coffee pods from landfills in Canada , thanks to this plant-based innovation. Club Coffee has received certification by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) under internationally-recognized standards for its compostable coffee pods.

The Ontario action reflects the wide availability of single-serve coffees in compostable pods from such well-known brands as President’s Choice, Maxwell House, Nabob, Ethical Bean, Muskoka Roastery, Jumping Bean, Craft Roasters and GoodHost.
