Closing the loop on coffee shop waste.
Revive Eco aims to eradicate the traditional ‘take, make, dispose’ way of thinking by transforming used coffee grounds into environmentally-friendly products.
Every year, over 500,000 tonnes of coffee grounds are generated in the UK, of which 90% are landfilled or incinerated, costing the UK coffee industry $100m*. The biochemicals held within the coffee grounds have a range of uses and contain key components that make up palm oil, meaning the volume of nutrient-rich material being disposed is a catastrophic waste of resources. Palm oil production accounts for roughly 10% of global CO2 emissions annually.
Revive offers a waste collection service to divert these coffee grounds and extract maximum value. From the residual material, we create a natural soil conditioner, putting valuable nutrients back into the earth via an entirely zero waste process, and providing a range of industries (such as hospitality, cosmetics and fashion) with sustainable and locally-sourced alternatives to palm oil.
