Recycle Your Used Coffee Bags!

Send us your empty Mugging Whales Coffee bags and receive a FREE bag of coffee!

One of the things we have been struggling with in our business is finding environmentally-friendly packaging that also maintains the freshness of our coffee beans. In order to maintain freshness, the majority of coffee bags are high barrier, which means they have a foil lining on the inside and a thin layer of plastic on the outside. (These are the type of bags you will find on most grocery store shelves, as well as in coffee shops.) Because they are made up of these two materials laminated together, most recycling programs in Canada will not accept them.

After some research, we have discovered a company in Canada that recycles the “non-recyclable” including used coffee bags! This has inspired us to start our own recycling program to help reduce some of this waste that ends up in our landfills, oceans, etc.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Collect 5 empty Mugging Whales Coffee bags

  2. Mail your empty coffee bags to us at this address: **

    Mugging Whales Coffee
    21 Virden Crescent
    Winnipeg, MB
    R2C 2A3

  3. Receive a FREE bag of coffee (227g) with your next online order!



** We are in the process of updating our return postage options. We will be including pre-addressed envelopes with future orders, making it easier to send us your empty Mugging Whales Coffee bags.
