Demand Compostable K-Cups!

Can you even begin to imagine the amount of single use Keurig-style K-Cups that are being put into landfills every day? Every hour? Every minute?  In a society that is supposed to be turning back the clock on damage done to our environment, it amazes me that single use plastics, especially something used multiple times per day, per person like a K-cup, are still being produced legally.  They should be banned! The sad part is, there is already an alternative, and not all companies are using the new style! Demand compostable / biodegradable K-Cups NOW!  Being recyclable is not enough.  In order to recycle a 'recyclable' k-cup, for each cup, the consumer would need to peel off the top, dump the coffee grounds into the trash, remove the small filter from inside the cup, then place the empty k-cup into the trash. That's 4 steps when they're trying to save time by using them in the first place...I can't imagine many people, if any, take the time to do that. Demand that coffee companies ONLY PRODUCE biodegradable k-cups!  Enough is enough!  According to USA Today, over 40% of American consumers own a single cup coffee brewing system. An article by The Story of Stuff claims that the amount of K-Cups trashed into landfills as of today could wrap around the planet more than 10 times! Mind-boggling. In the meantime, only support brands who offer biodegradable k-cups, such as San Francisco Bay, Faro, and Glory Brew to name a few!  Save our Planet!
