However, there has always been one thing that bothers me....where do all those little K-Cups go in the landfill?? Check out these sad stats below:
The Truth about Single Serve is that it is a growing and significant environmental concern. Just look at the numbers:
- 16 million US households own a single serve brewer
- 13% of the US population drank a cup of coffee made in a single serve brewer yesterday
- That equates to 41 million used single serve cups everyday
- 9.6 billion cups every year
- 2.8 billion cubic feet of waste in our landfills every year
Like me and many of you, my earth-conscious readers, they were bothered by the waste generated by tons of used single-serve coffee cartridges entering landfills each year, even though they loved the convenience and variety of using a single-serve coffee machine. So they created this tool that allows you to separate the components of the cups, so that they can be re-used, recycled, and even composted.
Check out how it works:
The Recycle A Cup is such a simple and easy solution to eliminate extra waste in our environment and it gives me peace of mind every time I use my Keurig and K-Cups! I now can enjoy my favorite drinks and then recycle the K-Cups easily!
