Aluminum is the past, Compostable is the future
Less than 30% of aluminum pods are recycled and all new pods contain 20% of non recycled aluminum. Behind, big conglomerate lies and ugly truths of a supply chain which uses massive amounts of energy, water resources and chemical products to produce this new aluminum, in what is a highly destructive process. Although Nespresso® will shout about how recyclable aluminum is, this in reality does not take place. As a percentage of pods that go to landfill - Nespresso®* themselves estimate that only 29% are being recycled - 71% is a ridiculously high number given that 14 billion Nespresso®* pods are sold per year. Traditional plastic and aluminum pods can take 150 years to break down and decompose. In your home compost, ours will break down quickly, or can be placed in your food waste bin. If worst comes to the worst and Woken pods do make their way into landfill our pods will still break down in these ambient environments.
For a reduced carbon footprint, Woken products are shipped using existing postal routes.

Partner with Verdn
Everytime you purchase a Woken Mix 6 Pack, Woken Coffee donates .75 cents to ocean plastic clean up, through our partner Verdn. Since we started working with Verdn and thanks to our awesome customers, we have helped with 4338 KG of plastic that has been removed from our oceans! That is so cool! Each Mix, helps to clean up 80 plastic. 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!
