If you come to my office at TS, you might notice that I have a Keurig K-Cup coffee machine on my desk. Moving this machine from my home to my office has dramatically decreased the number of stops I might make on my way to or from the office for coffee. Yes, I’m saving money. Yes, I’m being a bit more environmentally conscious.
My beloved k-cups (which I buy in boxes of 50 from Costco and only purchase fair-trade I might add), do cause me concern. I realize that I’m producing a bit of waste because of the one-time use of these cups. (I should note that when I was using this machine at home, I most often used this reusable filter). In my office, however, coffee grounds, and the reusable filter did not seem like a practical option.
Then I read this article about how Green Mountain Coffee (where I used to buy my k-cups when living in the country to the south) is trying to make the packaging on the k-cups more green. Thank you Green Mountain Coffee for helping to ease my guilty conscience a bit.
If you would like a cup of coffee, feel free to stop by!
PS – You’re only getting fair trade coffee, right? Perhaps a post for another time!
