How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy. 

Collect your used Green Barista and Di Stefano coffee bags at home using any available box. When you are ready to send in a shipment, download a shipping label from your TerraCycle account by clicking “Ship us your waste” and follow the prompts. Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box. Ship the box to TerraCycle by dropping it off at your nearby post office.

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure your coffee bags are empty before placing them in your collection box. Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the Green Barista and Di Stefano coffee bags are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.
