Recycling Nespresso Pods compared to mugpods

Mugpods Ltd
The steps to recycling those little Nespresso capsules of joy As time as gone on we have become more aware of the environmental impact of the food and drink we consume including the pods and capsules we use in our machines. With the amount of pods now available in the market it is hard to know which ones are best. Particularly with compatible pods as many are made from plastic – which can take up to 500 years to degrade. Other companies sell aliminium based pods – but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are completely recyclable as sometimes they are multi alloy. We have been rolling out our new biodegradable pods & capsules. These pods use d2w oxo-biodegradable plastic technology. This means that they are recyclable and biodegradable (but not able to be composted).…

Our Logo

Mugpods Ltd
Back in 2015, we started mugpods – the name itself did not take us too long, we knew we wanted it to contain the word “pod” and something in relation to drinking coffee & hot chocolate, the natural conclusion was that we generally drink them from a “mug”. Once we knew this, we wrote a big list of words containing the two, and for each one checked whether the domain names were available – and so “mug pods” was born in September 2015 (the same week we decided to start the company). Our logo however – took much longer! We wanted colour wise for it to show the warmth and enjoyment of a hot drink, yet the excitement of trying flavours that were not previously available.…
