A material is called compostable when, after its degradation, it turns into compost, thus allowing a substantial reduction in waste.
Becoming compost means that the waste is transformed into dirt, a structure similar to the soil, that is generally used for fertilization of plants.
In order to be considered compostable, a material must have particular structural requirements, certified by entitled organisations after specific tests.
Caffè Morandini’s pods and capsules line allows everybody to take a quick and easy coffee break while respecting the environment.
Each pod and capsule is obtained from compostable materials, certified by the international certification authority TÜV Austria, with the label OK Compost.
This means that once used, capsules and pods can be disposed of in the organic waste according to the instructions set forth by the municipality of residence.
This is the right product line for people who want to give a tasteful coffee break and without waste, because it’s made of natural materials, 100 percent compostable in your own backyard.
