August 10th, 2022

Don Francisco's Coffee Celebrates 1,000,000+ Recycled Coffee Bags and Pods

Creating a greener footprint and more sustainable lifestyle is always a work in progress, but by working together, we can all do our part in establishing a better world for future generations.

Since the beginning of our partnership with TerraCycle® in 2020, our loyal customers have sent in over 1.5 million coffee bags, pods and espresso capsules for recycling – covering a distance between Los Angeles and Pismo Beach.

Free and Easy Recycling Program in Partnership with TerraCycle

This free and convenient program makes recycling used Don Francisco coffee bags, pods and espresso capsules easier than ever. Here’s how it works:

Don Francisco's Coffee is committed to providing premium coffee with a greener footprint through sustainable practices.

From working with smallholder coffee farms to operating a zero-waste-to-landfill facility in the heart of Los Angeles, we’re dedicated to reducing our footprint every step of the way. Partnering with TerraCycle is one of the many ways in which we’re working to reduce waste in landfills.

Over the last two decades, we’ve launched international outreach programs to connect with small coffee farmers and help provide tools and resources that increase livelihoods and quality of life for surrounding communities.
