This month’s nominee for stupid plastic crap is the single-serving coffee brewer like
Keurig. This type of coffee brewer offers many types of coffee, hot chocolate, and tea. All are pre measured in individual plastic cups. This convenient beverage is ready in 2 minutes and leaves behind a plastic container that is not recyclable. This type of single-serving food is very popular with consumers.
Bring variety to your countertop and useless plastic to the environment.
I have blogged about the wastefulness of single-serving food products before. They are a luxury and luxury means waste. I also have blogged about convenience and how it does leads to waste. We have to ask ourselves if the convenience of drinking a speciality coffee that is prepared in 2 minutes is worth leaving plastic waste in the environment for several centuries.
