Pret A Manger joins Podback recycling scheme

Pret A Manger has become a member of the Podback recycling scheme.

The scheme enables customers to recycle their aluminum Pret at-home coffee pods.

The company’s home coffee retail range was first launched in May 2020 and expanded last year.

The coffee pods are available from Pret shops, Ocado, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, and Amazon.

Podback was created by Nestlé and Jacobs Douwe Egberts UK (JDE UK), which describe the iniative as the UK’s “first nationwide, not-for-profit service providing customers with several easy ways to recycle their coffee pods, whether they are aluminum or plastic”.

“We’re always looking for new ways to reduce our impact on the environment, whether through introducing coffee cup recycling stations in-shop or our 50p reusable cup discount,” said Guy Meakin, UK managing director, Pret A Manger. “Now that our coffee is increasingly enjoyed in homes around the country, we wanted to find a solution that would help our customers recycle their Pret coffee pods easily. We’re excited to join the Podback scheme to make this possible.”
