What material are the MY COFFEE CUP capsules made of?

The paper lid is also garden compostable.
How many MY COFFEE CUP capsules are in a box?

A mega box contains 100 capsules.
Are the MY COFFEE CUP capsules certified?
Yes, MY COFFEE CUP capsules are certified bio-based⁴ and carry multiple certificates² for garden compostability. All teas and coffees are certified organic.
How should I dispose of used MY COFFEE CUP capsules?
You can dispose of your used capsules in your garden compost, after consultation with the municipal waste disposal company, in your organic waste bin or with a clear conscience in the residual waste.
Some of the industrial composting plants are based on the short rotting time of fruit or laid out garden waste. Due to the longer decomposition time of the capsules, some of them are sorted out and end up in an incinerator.
Since the capsules are certified as climate-neutral¹, no additional CO₂ is released into the atmosphere when burned in a waste incineration plant.
Are the MY COFFEE CUP products vegan and gluten-free? Do allergy sufferers have to pay attention to something?
All MY COFFEE CUP products are vegan and gluten-free. The suppliers of the organic teas and organic coffees have confirmed to us that the products do not contain any allergens.
