Bio-Tee- und Bio-Kaffeegenuss mit gutem Gewissen

Mit seinen Marken My Coffee Cup und My Tea Cup bietet UniCaps nachhaltige Heißgetränke in höchster Bio-Qualität an. Den Fokus legt das 2016 gegründete Unternehmen mit Sitz in Frankfurt/Oder zunächst auf die ressourcenschonende Produktion von hochwertigen Bio-Kaffees und Bio-Tees in industriell kompostierbaren Nespresso®-kompatiblen Kapseln – ganz ohne Aluminium. UniCaps bietet seinen Kund*innen somit die Möglichkeit, hochwertige Heißgetränke auf Knopfdruck zu genießen und gleichzeitig einen Beitrag zum Schutz von Mensch und Natur zu leisten.

Dabei setzt das Unternehmen durchgehend auf Bio-zertifizierte Produkte – für eine nachhaltige Landwirtschaft, sauberes Trinkwasser und den Erhalt der Biodiversität. Die umweltfreundlichen Kapselhüllen bestehen zu zwei Dritteln aus nachwachsenden Rohstoffen und werden, unter Verwendung von Wasserkraft aus Bayern, bereits klimaneutral hergestellt. Nun auch die gesamte Produktpalette klimaneutral anzubieten war der nächste konsequente Schritt für UniCaps. Der Heißgetränkeanbieter unterstützt Klimaschutzprojekte aus unserem Portfolio, um die unvermeidbaren Emissionen, etwa aus der Ernte und dem Transport, auszugleichen. 

Damit führt UniCaps noch vor den großen Marktteilnehmern erste klimaneutrale Bio-Kaffeekapseln ein und setzt so einen neuen Standard für umweltbewussten Kaffee- und Teegenuss in der Branche. Im Frühjahr 2021 wurde das Sortiment um klimaneutrale Bio-Kaffeebohnen erweitert, um auch Menschen ohne Kapselmaschine Genuss mit gutem Gewissen zu ermöglichen. Die Bohnen sind Fairtrade-zertifiziert und werden in einen innovativen Aromabeutel verpackt, der aus industriell kompostierbaren Komponenten besteht.

"Als "Genuss-Lieferant" verbinden wir einzigartigen Geschmack auf Knopfdruck mit Umweltverantwortung und Nachhaltigkeit. Durch die Kompostierbarkeit unserer Produkte sparen wir bereits einen guten Teil CO2-Emissionen ein. Da unser Kaffee aber nun einmal nicht aus Europa kommt, sind zum Beispiel Emissionen aufgrund des Transports unvermeidbar. Dass wir diese dank unserer Partnerschaft mit ClimatePartner ausgleichen können, freut uns sehr."
