Now is the time to order your coffee logs
Now is the time to be thinking about the coming winter and if you have a log burner maybe it’s also time to consider an alternative to burning wood logs. Have you ever thought of Coffee Logs?
UK Vending has teamed up with bio-bean, an award-winning clean technology company who have created unique solutions to everyday problems, such as what to do with waste coffee grounds. Coffee grounds are now collected and recycled into coffee logs with each log being made up of the grounds of 25 cups of coffee. Each off the logs burns 25 per cent hotter and for longer than kiln-dried wood. The coffee logs also burn more efficiently and produce a staggering 80 per cent less emissions than if the product were simply sent to landfill.
As well as coffee grounds, UK Vending is also recycling all of its disposable single-use coffee cups used by its visitors. After collection, the cups are processed through a pulper to break down the fibres. Once this process is complete, the material can then be used in other forms of packaging.
As for UK Vending staff each has be given a re-useable cup made from bamboo, saving 1000’s of paper cups being used every year.
UK Vending Ltd’s initiative to adopt the waste system, ‘Infinity’, is just the continuation of the company’s environmental journey and it is aiming to further improve its recycling rates of other materials too.
