Recycling Your Coffee Bags

Recycle with Machina

As part of our ongoing sustainability initiatives, we have teamed up with TerraCycle to stop your empty Machina coffee bags going to waste. The idea is simple - you send us your empty bags, we send your empty bags to TerraCycle, TerraCycle transforms them into a range of recycled plastic products.

Future thinking

Long term, our aim is to eventually move all our bags across to a solution that can be easily recycled as part of all UK recycling programmes, is easy and cost effective to post and, crucially, ensures the quality of our coffee. Until then, you can send them to us and we will recycle your bags for you. We’ll even send you a discount for 50% off* your next 250g bag according to the terms below.
