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 nine (9) empty Mugging Whales Coffee bags

  2. Mail your empty coffee bags to us at this address (postage not included):

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

  3. We'll add 500 Coffee Beans to your Rewards account, which can be redeemed for $20 OFF (one free 340g bag of coffee!) on a future online order
Do you have coffee bags from other brands?

We can recycle those too! Unfortunately they won’t count toward your free bag, but it does get them out of the landfills. Just send them to us along with your nine (9) empty Mugging Whales Coffee bags and we’ll make sure they all get recycled!


If you're a new online customer, please send us a message with your name and email address so we can email your code once we receive your empty bags!
