The plant-based plastic in your Oceano® capsule is made from completely renewable resources. In our case this is sugar that comes from sugarcane and sugar beets. Compared to conventional plastic or aluminium coffee capsules, renewably sourced plastics such as PLA constribute to the decoupling of plastic production and thus, drastically reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. Worldwide, PLA is therefore known to be contributing positively to supress the swelling problem of mass plastic consumption and waste.
Oceano® is part of the Greenring™. The GreenRing is a consortium of companies who have redesigned the way we create and dispose of coffee capsules. The green rings on our capsules help the consumer identify the biodegradable product.
