Coffee Bags


Updated on March 9, 2019



Completely paper bags can be composted but most coffee bags are a bonded composite (e.g. paper and plastic, or paper and foil) which must go to the landfill.


Buy coffee from the bulk section in a plain paper bag or reusable container. Look for a Rainforest Alliance, Fair Trade, or Organic label.


The process of growing and producing coffee is plagued with negative consequences on the environment, most notably intensive water use, water pollution, and deforestation.
