Are you like me and concerned about the environmental impact of single-use coffee pods? All Keurig K-Cup pods are now made from #5 plastic, a material accepted for recycling across British Columbia.
Keurig has been partnering with the recycling industry, including Recycle BC, across North America for the past three years to ensure that the pods can easily travel from recycling bins at homes to recovery and processing facilities to a useful second life as a new durable good.
Read on to find out HOW.
Anyone who knows me well will tell you how close I am with my grandma. She’s always been there for me, and is the most positive, nonjudgmental and supportive person I know. Whenever I’m back in my hometown visiting her, I use her Keurig coffee maker to make a delicious coffee for each of us before sitting down to catch up together. I’ve always appreciated how quick and simple it is for us to make a great tasting cup of coffee.
I’ve always wanted one in our own home, but the concern about the environmental impact of the disposable coffee-pods always stopped me.
When I found out that Keurig K-Cup pods are now recyclable all across BC, I felt good about having one in our home– and sharing this positive news with our friends. It was a game changer.
It takes a few seconds fill up the water tank and inserting your favourite type of K-Cup Pod.
Yup– you read that right. You can choose the coffee strength and mug size with the touch of a button.
Now it’s easy to make a cafe-quality cappuccino or latte (hot or cold) with the Keurig Milk Frother. I was impressed at how easy it was to use, pour and clean!
I couldn’t believe how quick and simple it was for me to make a cafe-quality drink myself! My husband and I are thrilled about how much money we will be saving as we’re both guilty of running to expensive coffee shops for our caffeine fix.
Allow K-Cup pod to cool. Starting at the puncture, peel and dispose of the lid.
Compost or discard the coffee grounds. Filter can remain.
Put the empty K-Cup pod in your recycling bin. It’s that simple.
