Halo is a completely bio-degradable coffee capsule compatible with your home Nespresso machine. Designed with an innovative blend of compostable natural fibres to protect the coffee flavours. Like many coffee drinkers across the world Halo was dissatisfied with the coffee capsule industries practices, vagueness and green washing.
-13,500 non-biodegradable coffee capsules being thrown into landfill every minute.
-39,000 coffee capsules globally are produced every minute.
-Between 13,500 and 29,000 of these are sent to landfill.
-That’s over 20 billion capsules containing aluminium or plastic produced every year
-Circling the earth 14 times over
Aluminium and plastic coffee capsules are difficult and time consuming for people to recycle so most of them get thrown in the bin. Or they have to be sent for industrial composting which can be very difficult and expensive. Halo is made of entirely organic materials; Bamboo and paper pulp. “It’s not a cheap way of packaging coffee but it’s the right way.”
