A Problem is Brewing for K-Cups and the Environment
Over at The Atlantic we find another article on a problem brewing for all of us in the single serve coffee world that use non-recyclable K-Cups - how bad is this for the environment? We do know Keurig Green Mountain has pledged to get the problem resolved by 2020, but that’s 5 years from now. We also know there are some K-Cups not from Keurig Green Mountain that are recyclable in part. We also know throwing things into landfills is not the best way to care for our planet.
The article also features the creator of the K-Cup and Keurig brewer - John Sylvan who always has something funny to say about single serve coffee:
"‘I don't have one. They're kind of expensive to use,’ John Sylvan told me frankly, of Keurig K-Cups, the single-serve brewing pods that have fundamentally changed the coffee experience in recent years. ‘Plus it’s not like drip coffee is tough to make.’ Which would seem like a pretty banal sentiment, were Sylvan not the inventor of the K-Cup."
We suggest you head over and get the full read at The Atlantic.
