We're Partnering with Verdn for cleaner oceans 🌊 

In our ongoing mission to become more sustainable, we’ve teamed up with Verdn to attach high-quality impacts to our products. The impact is unique, transparent, and fully trackable. After buying our woken mix, you’ll receive a link to your very own tracking dashboard.

For Every Woken Mix sold, Woken will finance the cleanup of 80 bottles’ worth of ocean-bound plastic. That’s 1 kg (2.2 lbs). 


The impacts offered through the Verdn platform are carried out by selected partners. These partners are a collection of the world’s most effective charities, NGOs and organizations, and they do work across some of the most pressing issues of our time, including reforestation, and ocean plastic recovery.

Did you know....

Ocean plastic might outweigh all fish by 2050.  Every year over 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our oceans.  Furthermore, only 10% of all plastic is ever recycled. Only 10%, which is another reason that composting commercially or at home is so important! 

The Clean Up....

The cleanup takes place along polluted rivers and shorelines in both Africa and Asia. The work is carried out by Empower AS in collaboration with local partner organizations. The cleanup is facilitated and tracked by Verdn, which in turn allows every Woken Coffee customer to see when and where plastic was collected on their behalf.

Not only does your coffee compostable pods now not end up in the landfill, you are now directly helping to take garbage out of the ocean! We think that is pretty cool!
