As at-home café culture rose to new heights with the introduction of coffee pod machines, so too did ‘pod phenomenon’. Hailed for their convenience and perfect extraction cup after cup, coffee pod machines have however, created one damning, disposable problem – their environmental credentials
are poor. Mainstream coffee pods, typically made from non-biodegradable plastic and aluminium, create an unimaginable amount of waste each year. The environmentally friendly alternative- Bondi Pods.
Bondi Pods are 100% biodegradable and compostable Nespresso® compatible coffee pods. These ingenious coffee capsules, including the lid, are made from a patented plant-based composite consisting of sugarcane and sugar beet – meaning the entire capsule can be fully broken down into compost once disposed of in an organic waste compost bin (bio-bin). Under the right conditions (warm, moist and oxygenated) in an industrial compost facility, entire capsules can be ‘chewed up and spat out’ by microorganisms, leaving behind only biomass, CO2 and water in just 12 weeks! Pretty impressive considering non-biodegradable pods made from a combination of plastics and aluminium can take 150 – 500 years to breakdown in landfill!
Bondi Pods don’t scrimp on the coffee either. Ethically sourced and Fairtrade certified, Bondi Pods’ beans are garnered from independent growers across South America and Ethiopia. Bondi Pods currently produces three coffee pod variants – original dark roast, mocha and caramel – all available
at an affordable price point ($12.50) per box of 10 pods. Bondi Pods are currently offering 30% off all orders online, meaning you can get your mitts on a pack of 10 pods for a mere $8.75 per box!
Bondi Pod coffee capsules currently available to purchase include the following roast combinations –
o Original Dark Roast – medium dark roast beans for a vibrant, full flavour coffee with a rich, dark colour. Perfect for an espresso, flat white, cappuccino or latte.
