To date, Elior and bio-bean have made 11,500 logs (and counting). These logs burn 20 percent longer and hotter than kiln-dried wood, and recycling coffee waste generates 80 percent less emissions than landfill.
Charlotte Wright, CSR manager, Elior UK said, “This is just the beginning, we plan on getting more sites involved. CSR is at the heart of everything we do. We want to work with partners and like-minded businesses to effect real change – and bio-bean is definitely doing that.”
Julia Porter, national supply chain manager, bio-bean added, “Through encouraging clients to recycle their waste coffee responsibly, Elior is helping them to reduce their carbon footprint and cut down on waste disposal costs. We’ve already seen great success and look forward to an increasing cluster of Elior clients coming on board!”
