bio-bean London launch
Mayor launches bio-bean service.
One of many customers now using the recycling service, Workshop Coffee, hosted the event at their Clerkenwell roastery & cafe.
The Mayor was accompanied by Zac Goldsmith MP to acknowledge and celebrate London’s first waste collection service solely for waste coffee grounds. He commended bio-bean on the success of the service and went on to say “they’ve done the hard grind and now Londoners can enjoy their daily coffee fix in the safe knowledge that, as well as their own caffeine kick, the energy levels of as many as 15,000 homes are being boosted.”
bio-bean CEO Arthur Kay said: “The London collection service marks a milestone in our UK development because we collect waste coffee grounds at every scale, saving money on waste disposal fees and creating sustainability advantages for each of our clients. Joining bio-bean’s collection route couldn’t be easier. If the Mayor can do it, you can too!”
The event featured widely in the press, including an article in the Evening Standard.
The daily coffee ground collection service is run in collaboration with recycling company First Mile. Every tonne recycled saves up to 6.8 tonnes of C02 equivalent. To sign up for bio-bean’s collection route, please contact George May.
