A guide to Bad Hand's coffee bags


Bad Hand Coffee - eco friendly coffee bags

Sourcing genuinely eco friendly coffee bags is really bloody difficult. There's so much information to wade through, checking supplier credentials while also watching out for greenwashing and making sure it all comes in within budget. It's no easy task.

While some big-name coffee roasters are happy to stop at commercially compostable bags, we weren't. We wanted to do better.

That's why we're absolutely stoked to announce we are introducing fully recyclable home compostable coffee bags, alongside our existing omnidegradable ones.

The white Bad Hand Coffee bags are also omnidegradable. This means, like the brown paper bags, they will break down in landfill, commercial or home compost to biomass, water and CO2 when in contact with naturally occurring enzymes in soil and water.
