More than 156 million single-serve coffee pods have been recycled by Lavazza Professional via its TerraCycle partnership.
Lavazza Professional’s relationship with TerraCycle to recycle its single-serve Flavia Freshpacks began 10 years ago. It’s part of the company’s ongoing sustainability strategy work, according to Global Senior Manager Sustainability Richard Bond.
“TerraCycle has been a critical partner in offering this recycling solution for our Flavia Freshpacks and helping us to reach this wonderful milestone,” Bond said in a statement. “Strong partnerships are a critical factor in this work which we hope to build on with TerraCycle as we identify ways in which we can further support our customers and distributors in achieving their own sustainability targets.”
Through the Recycle Your Freshpack Program, businesses serviced by an authorized Lavazza Professional distributor can register at www.recycleyourfreshpacks.com, collect their empty Flavia Freshpacks, download a shipping label and returned the waste to Trenton-based TerraCycle for recycling.
“This milestone demonstrates that by offering a simple solution to waste, a significant impact can be achieved that not only preserves the environment but makes the world a better, cleaner place,” said TerraCycle Chief Executive Office Tom Szaky in a statement.
