Although in some single-serve systems, the packaging is recyclable, [others] are not. ...It’s impractical for employees to do so while at work. Most office coffee packaging goes straight into our landfills.

Social Bean Gourmet Coffee Co and Egg Studios have released a satirical video in which the city of Halifax is under the attack of discarded coffee pods to generate awareness about the effects the consumer trend is having on the environment.

Doug Leblanc, Owner of Social Bean Gourmet Coffee Co notes, “Although in some single-serve systems, the packaging is recyclable, [others] are not. ...It’s impractical for employees to do so while at work. Most office coffee packaging goes straight into our landfills.”

“We aren’t looking to put anyone out of business, we simply want these organizations to develop coffee pods that are 100% recyclable right away. Waiting any longer is irresponsible,” says Mike Hachey, CEO of Egg Studios.

About Social Bean Gourmet Coffee Co.
Social Bean provides an environmentally sound solution to single serve coffee needs. Our "Bean to cup" systems that grind freshly roasted beans for each individual cup of coffee, at the touch of a button. The beans are roasted locally by Just Us Coffee Roasters and are loaded into the machines in bulk, eliminating the need for individual packaging. Compost is removed from the machines by our staff and reused in gardens and HRM composting throughout the city.
