[Santa Cruz, CA, APRIL 22, 2020] –Just in time for the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, Steeped Coffee, known for its award-winning single-serve brewing method featuring sustainable packaging, is proud to announce that their entire brewing method has been certified fully compostable. From the outside Guilt-Free Packaging to the inner non-GMO Full Immersion Filter, the Steeped Brewing Method not only uses renewable plant-based materials, but is fully compostable to ensure that our sacred coffee rituals go unnoticed by the next generation.
Since launch, Steeped Inc. a Certified B Corp, has sought to answer the environmental dilemma created by non-recyclable brewing machines and billions of coffee pods that accumulate in the world’s landfills every year.
“Since 2009, so many plastic pods have been used that if placed side-by-side, they would wrap around the planet over 130 times,” says Josh Wilbur, Steeped’s Founder and CEO.
Steeped Coffee is one of the only brewing methods that doesn’t require a machine, grinder, or special equipment to prepare premium coffee. Brewed similar to tea, Steeped Bags only need water to make a simple cup of specialty coffee.
After years of development, the current version of Steeped Guilt-Free packaging utilizes renewable materials that pair high performance with the ability to safely break down per current compostability standards.
“We are constantly looking at every element of our company’s footprint, while also preserving coffee quality and freshness,” says Wilbur. “We continue to learn and innovate to improve all of the materials within the Steeped Brewing Method as a top priority — not an afterthought.”
Through licensed partnerships,Steeped, Inc. is expanding the positive impact of its fully compostable brewing method to over 125 specialty coffee roasters around the globe. Steeped, Inc. has also recently launched a Steeped Packaging division offering compostable packaging to other sustainably-minded packaged goods companies.
