NESCAFÉ sustainability tips

NESCAFÉ smart flask next to a jar of coffee (Not available in Europe)

Simply by swapping your disposable cup with a reusable coffee cup* you can reduce waste by filling it with your favourite NESCAFÉ coffee. Inspire your colleagues at work and spread the good advice around the office.

The best temperature for NESCAFÉ is 80 ºC not 100 ºC. It makes for better flavour and uses less energy. Did you know boiling a whole kettle three times a day uses approximately 110kWh of electricity a year? By heating water to just 80ºC each time, you could save 22kWh each year, enough to power a 50” LED TV for 1,375 hours! Next time you heat water, take it off the boil just as the bubbles appear. It makes a better cup and helps the environment.

It might take a small extra step, but recycling can make a difference. Did you know that recycling your glass NESCAFÉ jar saves up to 670kg of CO2e for every ton of recycled glass used*? Not to mention it uses less virgin glass materials. So, when it comes to recycling, a little really can go a long way.
