K-Cups, the single serving coffee pods used in the Keurig coffee brewing machine have been on the high radar of environmentalists since their emergence several years ago. These pods are largely unrecycable and are cluttering landfills throughout the world. Enough K-Cups have been used and discarded that they could circle the earth over twelve times. An environmentalist websitewww.killthekcup.orgĀ has been started to try and eradicate the existence of K-Cups. If you feel strongly on this issue you should check out their website and sign their petition urging the banning of K-Cups. In addition, one thing you can do as a consumer to try and stop the plague of K-Cups is to simply stop buying them and make coffee like a normal person. And if you must use a Keurig, they do make reusable K-Cups.
