Vancouver-based Ethical Bean Coffee announced the launch of a unique 100% certified compostable single serve pod. With a strong ongoing commitment to fair and environmentally friendly production practices, Ethical Bean has gone one step further with an innovative solution to the large environmental challenge of single serve coffee plastic waste.

Convenience meets sustainability and taste with Ethical Bean's new 100% compostable pods. Made from coffee bean chaff and other renewable materials, the entire pod can be thrown directly into the green bin and will completely break down in a municipal composter in less than 84 days. It is estimated that 10 billion single serve plastic coffee pods are thrown into North American landfills every year, an issue that has reached an environmental tipping point globally.
