Our Coffee Bags are made from Biodegradable Plastic
Jacob Pod packages its pods in Oxo-Degradable paper bags called “bak2earth” that are made with between 45-60% renewable wood pulp starch and this is completely oxo-degradable. This bags are USA Astm D-6868 and D-6400 approved standard and 100% of wood pulp portion will be dissolved in approx 85 days with home composting facility. The balance of of the packaging (55-40%) is from fossil and it has additive which helps total packaging breakdown in approximately ten years. Whilst still allowing the coffee pods a barrier to ensure a maximum shelf life from preventing oxygen from entering the packaging.
