A St Albans vendor has launched biodegradable coffee pods to combat plastic waste.

Coffee Ethic, which has a stall at St Albans district council’s offices, has created coffee pods which can be used in Nespresso machines, then break down in your garden.

The CEO of Coffee Ethic’s parent charity Druglink, Sarah Clark, said: “Coffee Ethic customers have often asked us about coffee pods, but we have always had concerns around the negative impacts of packaging on the environment.

“Our customers can now enjoy our fair trade and organic coffee whilst contributing to a great cause, and of course the future of the planet.”

Coffee Ethic is a not-for-profit organisation which is intended to help people build skills, experience and confidence, while Druglink seeks to tackle drug and alcohol use in the community.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
