Ecopod is a Nespresso compatible capsule that is made from natural renewable resources and returns to nature within 6 months

Entry Motivation: 

A revolutionary product called Ecopod. Ecopod is a Nespresso compatible capsule that is made from natural renewable resources and returns to nature within 6 months. Ecopod is certified 100% compostable & biodegradable and works in all Nespresso & Nespresso compatible machines.

I am currently supplying Pick n Pay with tea (MUTEA) and Coffee (VUMBA Coffee) in ecopods. Ecopod is the world first compostable capsule designed for tea & is 100% proudly South African.

Did you know that +-50 million capsules are used globally everyday? 80% of the capsules are made from regular plastic that takes 450+ years to degrade.

Sales of coffee capsules continue to rise. It is estimated that in the UK alone 1 Billion capsules will be consumed by British coffee drinkers this year, with the bulk of the capsules 700 million – mainly plastic & aluminum which take up to 500+ years to degrade. The local South African single-serve market is growing quickly and Ecopod is addressing the problem for today and tomorrow. 

Unfortunately, the market is still confused. Baffled by terms and  led astray by fake claims. We’ve got to be honest with consumers about what single-serve capsules are better for the planet. Did you know that the term biodegradable has no time frame? ECOPOD is made from 100% natural blend of natural renewable resources and is certified suitable for Home composting which means it will breakdown and return to nature within 6 months and not land up in landfills, the environment and ocean.
