Using eco-friendly disposable packaging helps to deal with some of the growing contemporary problems, such as energy dependence and climate change. In our café you can separate waste: yellow for plastics, blue for paper and cardboard, and grey for organic products. Help us recycle for a life without waste!
Say YES to ecological disposables!
With Canada Coffee you make an effective contribution to the environment. In Spain only 0.5% of the plastic cups and containers are produced with ecological plastic. We are proud to say that our cups, cutlery and recipients are recyclable, biodegradable and sustainable, made with raw material from controlled production (FSC certified). Link to the declaration of conformity.
Unlike foam, styrofoam, and other oil-derived plastic cups, our ecological recipients are manufactured with a minimum amount of natural resources (raw materials, energy and water). They are 100% organic and biodegradable, as they are made using organic material that decomposes naturally into the soil. Take care of the planet with us!
During the production of these containers, the CO2 emissions are very low, thus the process produces a minimal carbon footprint. They are made with renewable and reusable plant by-products and other recycled materials. The waste disposal is environmentally friendly (recycling, composting, incineration with reduced emission of harmful substances).
Our eco-friendly packaging reduces the negative impact on the environment. After the end of their life cycle, they do not harm the environment because they are fully recyclable, biodegradable, compostable and sustainable. In an industrial composting plant, our recipients based on plant starch decompose naturally between 30 to 90 days.
The ecological plastic PLA complies with the DIN 13432 normative and will compost naturally in less than 90 days, according to weather conditions and microorganisms. Plastics derived from petroleum need centuries to decompose. Harmful remnants could end up in the food chain, and worst of all are the leftovers floating in seas and oceans. Contrary to these, plastics produced with natural resources such as our ecological recipients, reduce oil dependence and help the environment.
Sugar Cane Pulp
Sugar Cane Pulp
After extracting sugar from the sugar cane plant, the residue left over is a pulp. During the production of 100 tons of sugar, about 43 tons of pulp is left over. This is used for manufacturing cardboard and paper, but also for single-use recipients such as dishes, cups and boxes. It is made in China because it has one of the largest cultivation areas for sugar cane worldwide. There is no rainforest in China, thus the production does not require any deforestation. All sugar cane recipients are certified for contact with food products (BfR). The production is certified according to BRC.
All our organic teas come from controlled organic farming (certification ES-ECO-026-VAS) and fair trade. Our high quality organic teas are healthy, free from preservatives, chemical additives or artificial flavors (tehnical specifications file). The many minerals, vitamins and antioxidants provide numerous health benefits. These teas are environmentally friendly, totally free of pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and fungicides.
