The story of our compostable packaging
In 2004, we went landfill free.
Then, we introduced a reclamation and upcycling program for our coffee packages.
Now, we've taken another step in reducing our carbon footprint by launching a compostable coffee package. (The main ingredient? Made in Canada FSC certified wood pulp!)
WHAT IS THE PACKAGE MADE OF?
FSC certified paper, NatureFlex film, adhesive and bioplastic.
WHAT CAN I DO WITH THE PACKAGE WHEN I'M DONE WITH IT?
1. Compost it in your backyard
2. Bring it to one of our Reclamation Stations (available at many grocery stores) and we will compost it
CAN I PUT IT IN MY MUNICIPAL COMPOST BIN?
Most composting facilities only accept food scraps. Level Ground is trying to work with commercial composters, who are prepared to manage the longer composting time required for packaging. The reality is that our technology is ahead of where the waste management industry is currently. You are always welcome to send packaging back to us, and we will compost it.
CAN I COMPOST IT IN MY BACKYARD?
You can! Especially if you live in a mild climate and have composting skills. Cutting the package open and laying it flat will help speed things up. Remember to mix in lots of organic material like food scraps.
WILL IT KEEP MY COFFEE FRESH?
Yes! This packaging material is a high oxygen barrier film and will keep your coffee fresh. Coffee is happiest when it is hidden from light and air; this package does both wonderfully!
