bio-bean teams up with Caffè Nero
bio-bean has teamed up with another highstreet coffee giant – Caffè Nero – to recycle 218 tonnes of waste coffee grounds a year into advanced biofuels – such as our Coffee Logs.
“We are always looking at ways to improve our recycling so we are very excited to be working with First Mile and bio-bean on this initiative and will seek to extend it beyond Greater London,” said Caffè Nero’s commercial director Matt Spencer.
bio-bean works with waste management company First Mile to provide Nero’s baristas with special recycling sacks, meaning it couldn’t be easier to keep the waste coffee grounds separate from the rest of the waste stream.
First Mile’s chief commercial officer Joe Allen said: “This service marks another step in our ambition to create a world where you can recycle everything. Waste coffee grounds would previously go to incineration or landfill, and it is fantastic to see Caffè Nero embrace this new initiative and start recycling a significant amount of waste coffee. We look forward to supporting a wider roll-out and working with Caffè Nero on other recycling challenges.”
