These days, it is especially easy to overlook coffee’s carbon footprint, particularly with the notion of sustainable farming on the rise. And as consumers purchase coffee machines to brew their cup of joe at home, coffee capsules are becoming a part of the sustainability equation too. These days, roughly 60 billion coffee capsules are produced yearly. And once they’re used, capsules are usually just tossed. Not ideal, but bigger name brands are hardly doing anything about it. On the other hand, Halo Coffee, a startup founded in 2016, looks to gain market share in the huge coffee industry while making no compromises on sustainability. Instead of plastic, the company’s capsules are compatible with popular Nespresso machines, except they’re also the world’s first 100% compostable capsules. These sugarcane-based capsules decompose within 90 days, as opposed to their more known competitors that sit around for 200 years.
