Nespresso is finding a way to reuse waste and reduce environmental impact with the 2012 edition of it’s compact Pixie coffee machine. The aluminum side panels are made from material recycled from the company’s old coffee capsules. The small machine provides a “mini-revolution in eco-design,” improving performance in terms of material reuse. The aluminum is 98% sourced from recycled capsules, which illustrates Nespresso’s environmental commitment.
The capsule material is designed for infinite recycling without any deterioration in quality – and for optimum preservation of the aroma of Grands Crus. The end result is a significant reduction in the carbon footprint of the PIXIE machine and each new cup of coffee. This would seem to be the way forward for a new generation of machines.
