5. Odd Coffee Company subscription
With thousands of tonnes of coffee discarded each year, The Odd Coffee Company rescues surplus coffee pods and tonnes of ground coffee to help reduce waste.

The Odd Coffee Company repackages the rejected and surplus coffee in fully recyclable packaging for customers to enjoy sustainably sourced, quality roasted beans or pods at a fraction of the price.
