Our Stone Paper Coffee Bags are made by combining our revolutionary Stone Paper technology with traditional packaging practices. This process ensures our bags maintain their recyclability, thus providing a premium and sustainable coffee bag which will keep your coffee fresh for weeks (great coffee lasts weeks, not months!). We can also provide full barrier protection for extended shelf life, simply let us know your requirements below!
FDA Food Grade Approved, Freezer Grade, Waterproof, Greaseproof, Heat-sealable, 100% Recyclable.
Foil + PE pouches:
The entire process of transforming raw bauxite into aluminium (foil) is incredibly energy intensive, requiring copious amounts of electricity, water and resources to produce.
During this aluminium smelting process, perfluorocarbons are released, which are 9,200 times more harmful than carbon dioxide in terms of their effect on global warming.
Foil takes approximately a millennium to break, and millions end up in landfill every year due to their fused layers of foil and plastic.
Paper + PE pouches:
Millions end up in landfill every year due to their fused layers of paper and plastic. When paper degrades in landfill it releases methane - a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than C02 as a heat-trapping gas.
These are just some of the environmental benefits when producing one metric tonne of Stone Paper compared with traditional pulp paper:
20 trees not cut down
900 KGs CO2 emissions prevented
59,272 litres of water saved
16.3 million BTUs of energy saved
150 KGs solid waste not generated
What happens if our pouches end up in landfill?
While waste management infrastructure is not always perfect, should our pouches end up in landfill they will have a much lower environmental impact then foil and pulp paper coffee bags available on the market. Some of our features include being non-toxic, wont release methane gas and you will still receive all of the upstream benefits of Stone Paper. Plus, they are comparatively already 80% degraded due to their crushed stone content, which was bound for landfill anyway!
FDA Food Grade
Strong & durable
Stone Paper's natural attributes make it the perfect material for premium coffee pouch bags. As its colour palate is naturally white (calcium carbonate), Stone Paper prints beautifully and ensures no chemicals are required to give an elegant and luxurious finish.

Need a quick rundown on Stone Paper?
Well fair enough; it is in fact a very new and revolutionary technology in the world of paper and packaging!
Stone Paper is exactly as it sounds: paper made from stone. In fact it's 80% crushed stone (calcium carbonate) that is bound together by a non-toxic and fully recyclable HDPE resin, to create a luxurious, matte-finished paper. No trees or water are used in its production, leaving the Earth's natural resources to do what they do best.
Our paper can be recycled an infinite amount of times, can be commercially composted and will photodegrade into stone dust if left in direct sunlight. Being 100% non-toxic and by using only soy or water based inks we are proud to state that this is the future of sustainable packaging.
