Are you ready for the first ever coffee that's got a PLASTIC FREE coffee?! That's exactly what Percol have and I am SO excited to be stocking it at Plastic Freedom as it's not yet available in the plastic free bags at many supermarkets - I got some as a gift and haven't been able to find it since!
Percol have been ethical innovators since day one and they are now leading the way being the UK’s first coffee company to go plastic-free. But it doesn’t stop there. They're Carbon-neutral certified, so they’re not causing a negative impact on our planet - how amazing is that!

WHY GO PLASTIC FREE?
Coffee packs used by the coffee industry are made from mutli-layer barrier laminates that can’t be recycled, so sadly they’ll all end up being incinerated or will remain in landfills or ecosystems for hundreds of years. This amounts to over 100 million coffee packs in the UK alone each year! Our home compostable packaging can be returned back to nature after use, to be used as a soil improver. It is made from renewable resources, reducing the reliance on petrochemicals.
Our home compostable packaging is made from a blend of compostable polymers, derived from a range of natural products such as paper, plant fibres and eucalyptus wood pulp.
