The Eco Way to Use a Keurig

1

Keurigs are great. They give you great coffee/tea/hot chocolate in a matter of seconds. The problem, of course, is that the little disposable K-cups create a lot of waste compared to a traditional filter-less coffee machine. But if you already own a Keurig or your office has one, here are some tips for using it a greener way.

  • Use a reusable K-cup.
  • Use only organic, fair trade products to fill your reusable K-cups.
  • Keep using the same mug - no need to put it in the dishwasher after everyyyyy use.
  • Unplug the Keurig when no one is using it. 
  • Encourage your friends in co-workers to do the same.
