You can of course dispose of our capsules in your local recycling bin (in Germany, this is the yellow bin) and thus send it for conventional recycling. In this process, they are first separated as valuable plastic in a sorting plant and then processed into recycled material, from which new plastic products can be made. However, this plastic cannot be used in food production and therefore cannot be used to make new Avoury capsules.
We love to use our own plastic again. That's why it's even better if you send the capsules back to us so that we can add them to our molecular recycling process.
All you have to do is add the free Avoury recycling bag to your capsule order and collect the used capsules. The tea itself is simply left in the capsule. When the bag is full, stick the return label on it and send it back to us – free of charge, of course.
