Know Our Food - Our coffee waste is recycled
Our coffee waste is recycled
Serving the best coffee means we ensure that it benefits our planet.

At McDonald’s we offer more than just great tasting coffee,
we also ensure our ways of farming are environmentally friendly.

Collected
We collect all our used ground coffee from McCafé restaurants across the country.

Recycled
The coffee waste is taken to our recycling partner who begins to process it into seed paper and
seed-germination pods.

Reused
The remaining extracts are then placed into biodegradable, seed-germination pods, packaged
and branded with McCafé.

Repurposed
Pods are taken back to our restaurants where customers can take them home to grow their
own vegetables to enjoy.

This is our way of helping preserve the earth and inspire people to sow the bean for generations to come.
