How To Reduce Your Coffee Waste

Update: 2022-11-01


Our morning cup of coffee creates a lot of waste, ever wondered what to do with it all? If so, then this episode is for you. Join Scott as he examines three areas of coffee waste and talks to some very clever people about how to reduce our impact on the environment.

The Grounds - Soil scientist Linda J Brewer speaks with Scott about whether it’s a good idea or not to use our spent grounds in the garden.

The Packaging - Scott rummages through his compost bin, and speaks to Ollie Sears of North Star Coffee about an innovative new form of biodegradable packaging.

The Equipment - Scott Butler from Recycle Your Electricals tells (our) Scott how to dispose of all the broken grinders and coffee equipment he’s accumulated over the years.

So join Scott as he immerses himself in the world of coffee waste… and even buys an old Moccamaster filter coffee brewer online to reduce his carbon footprint. We all love our morning cup, so why not make sure you’re enjoying it in the most sustainable way
