Building a better compostable coffee pod

A new compostable bioplastic for use in coffee pods represents another step forward in the production of truly green pods. The material for the new biodegradable pods was developed by researchers at the University of British Columbia. According to the researchers, pods made of the material also keep the coffee inside fresher than other compostable pods.
