Please check out our Accepted Waste Poster below for more details.
Once a sufficient amount of Eco Caps are collected, they are sent to an industrial composting facitility. At the facility, they are industrially composted and turned into a useful, nutrient rich soil which will then be used for farmland areas.
Watch the video below to learn why not all waste can be locally recycled and how our partnership with Lavazza is one part of the solution - by industrially composting Eco Caps.
This programme offers 100 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of Lavazza Eco Caps sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 2 kilograms.
1 kilogram = 0 TerraCycle® points
2 kilograms = 200 TerraCycle® points
3 kilograms = 300 TerraCycle® points
Please note that TerraCycle® points are only credited to the accounts of public drop-off location administrators as a reward for their collection efforts. The number of points given is determined by the weight of the parcel. 1 TerraCycle® point is worth 1 penny.
Once credited, the points can be redeemed into financial donations to the charity or school chosen by the owner of the points. The points must be redeemed on the TerraCycle® website.
Lavazza’s story like all stories, is made up of emotions, obstacles and pivotal changes and it all began when Luigi Lavazza opened the first Lavazza store in via San Tommaso, Turin in 1895. The history of Lavazza is that of a business which, for over 120 years, has pursued a company vision based on passion for quality and excellence of our products. We have always paid careful attention to the economic, human, environmental and cultural heritage of the countries in which we operate. These values have been ingrained in Lavazza’s DNA since its foundation and upheld by four generations of entrepreneurs. In line with our value system, Lavazza is proud to introduce a UK wide composting solution in partnership with TerraCycle to support consumers in composting their coffee capsules in the easiest way.
