Nespresso have received a lot of criticism because of their coffee pods. The issue in the past was that their aluminium-based pods weren’t recyclable.

 

To try and approach this issue, the pods had to be collected and delivered to the 18 Nespresso stores in Australia. Nespresso announced recently that users would now be able to mail pods back to the company – up to 130 at a time – in a special satchel launched as part of a new partnership with Australia Post.

 

“The last six years what we’ve done in Australia is to set up a reycling program,” Nespresso Australia and Oceania general manger Loïc Réthoré told Perth’s Radio 6PR.

“The latest step in this is the collaboration with Australia Post that enables customers to send back their pods to us. They can fit 130 capsules in the envelope, which is perfectly sealed and recyclable.

 

“When they reach the plant the capsules are crushed, we separate aluminium from coffee, aluminium gets melted and re-injected in the production cycle of aluminium because aluminium is infinitely recycling. The coffee is actually transformed into compost that is used in farming industries.”

 

The satchels will cost $1.90 but Nespresso will cover the postage costs.

Everyday, someone in Australia suffers a spinal cord injury. From workplace incidences, to road and water accidents or extreme sports, the event of permanent paralysis is always unexpected and frequently preventable.

PBF Australia (The Paraplegic Benefit Fund) was established to create greater awareness of these risks, with the aim of reducing the impact and incidence of spinal cord injury in Australia. Quickmail are proud to be members of Paraplegic Benefit Fund Australia.

Yesterday Quickmail had a presentation from Symon and Katie. On behalf of the staff at Quickmail, thank you for taking the time to talk to us. Your visit has no doubt left a strong impression with us all and left us thinking of ways to aim to reduce the incidence of serious injury at work, on the road and at play.

Some key statistics surrounding spinal cord injuries include the following:
- 3 spinal cord injuries per week in WA
- Approximately 141 spinal cord injuries per year in WA
- 46% of spinal cord injuries are motor vehicle related
- 34% of spinal cord injuries are from falls
- 11% of spinal cord injuries is an “other” category (i.e. violence, being hit by objects, jerked off a horse, etc.)
- 9% of spinal cord injuries are Aquatic related
- Average age of a spinal cord injury is 43 primarily due to slips, trips and falls but the common age bracket for young adults is 15-24 particularly in males.
