One of the biggest eco-culprits is single-use coffee pods. It’s believed 75 million households use single-cup coffee machines every day, resulting in billions of plastic cups being thrown into landfills. To prevent this, consider refillable cups designed to be filled with loose coffee and rinsed out when finished. Or look for compostable cups that fit inside the machines and can be added to your backyard compost after use. Convenience comes at a cost, and eliminating this waste is a cinch!
