The environment and sustainability are a large part of our Mission at Erie Coffee Roasters. We're always looking for ways to improve our current processes to ensure they are aligned with being good to the environment. This is why we are moving to BioTre bags for our 12oz bags (5lb and sample bags will be next).
These bags, created by Pacific Bag Inc, are completely compostable at HOME once you remove the one-way vent. Many "compostable" product lines in the market today are compostable only in an industrial sense, meaning if you put them into your backyard composter, nothing will happen.
Check out the YouTube videos below to see the process from PBi.
