Do you love your Keurig machine?
Sure, but do you also love the environmental nightmare K-Cups are?
Or the fact that those single-use K-cups make every cup of coffee crazy expensive?
K-Cups aren’t recyclable or compostable. The plastic garbage produced by K-Cup waste is enormous — in 2013 alone, Green Mountain produced 8.3 billion K-Cups in 2013, enough to circle the Earth almost 11 times.
That’s for just one year!
There is nothing eco-friendly about K-Cups, period.
“All the crafting in the world is not going to find a use for all the K-Cups that it takes to circle the globe 10.5 times” – Creating a Green World
Still want to use a Keurig coffee machine? Then I have a solution: use a reusable Ekobrew filter in your Keurig machine.
As a passionate environmental activist, it’s the only way I felt comfortable using a Keurig machine when I was given one. Plus, I’m too frugal to shell out $1+ for one cup of coffee.
Just scoop your favorite grounds into the Ekobrew filter, then use it like a disposable K-Cup.
Another advantage: when you dump out the coffee grounds, you can reuse them as fertilizer for your yard or garden. I add it to our compost.
