Roughly once a month, employees from Nespresso’s North American headquarters in Manhattan board a bus and take the 60-mile journey to rural Sussex County.
With the city in the rear-view, skyscrapers give rise to an open landscape defined by lakes, postage-stamp downtowns and hilly green vistas that stretch into the distance. It’s a far cry from their normal 9-to-5 digs.
Yet this isn’t just a team-building exercise. Not in the traditional sense, anyway. On a farm and warehouse near Route 206, Jay and Jill Fischer of Ag Choice Organics Recycling are playing a key role in helping Nespresso advance its North American sustainability goals, one recycled coffee capsule at a time.
