The k cup coffee drinking population has not been more popular than it is today even despite the impact the coffee cups have on the environment,which is the newest controversy rising from the anti pod industry. Environmentalists are now raising the red flag and providing proof of the impact the little coffee pods have on our environment.
Green mountain is the maker of the keurig which has made a commitment to make all pods recyclable by the year 2020. To date there have been enough k cups made that if you lined them all up they would circle the earth multiple times. The impact of this type of waste is obvious which is why keurig owners have the responsibility to make a conscious effort to eliminate the waste created by your morning cup of coffee.
Two things you can do to cut the waste and be environmentally responsible during your daily routine.
1.purchase the reusable k cup pod and refill your your coffee with grounds instead of single use.
2.commit to using only pods that are recyclable, Costco offers one option if you go this route.
