Nespresso Capsule Recycling Rewards Program

We are all suckers for a cheeky coffee pod in the Man of Many office, but there’s no doubt the daily waste is a concern.  Luckily, Nespresso has launched a new Recycling Rewards scheme, offering consumers incentives to recycle their used aluminium coffee capsules at Nespresso Boutiques. From today until the end of June, anyone who returns a full bag of 100 used aluminium coffee capsules of any kind to a Nespresso Boutique can receive a free gift in return. Rewards include a free sleeve of Nespresso coffee, a notebook made with recycled coffee grounds, and a beach towel. To claim their gift, participants must simply register their recycling via a QR code in-store.

The two-month trial is part of Nespresso’s commitment to creating a sustainable, circular coffee economy. It aims to accelerate participation in the company’s coffee capsule recycling program while gathering valuable insights into whether incentives have a role to play in driving recycling behaviour in the future.
