The vaccuum packs of coffee (250 g) may still look the same, but from now on they are wrapped in an aluminium-free foil and their bulk packaging (12 x 250 g) consists of cardboard.
For Oxfam Fair Trade this is another step forward in the process of making all packaging more sustainable. It also fits within the general sustainability targets, on which we constantly focus together with our suppliers.
What changes to the packaging are we talking about?
- The new inner film is recycable plastic foil made out of LPDE: Low Density Polyethylene.
- The cardboard bulk packaging replaces the plastic shrink film
- Plastic, paper and cardboard are 100 % recycable (*)
Which coffee packages are involved?
The following coffee packagings will already receive an environmentally friendly upgrade! In the near future this will be applied to the entire coffee range.
