WASTEFUL keurig

Posted on Thu, Sep 19, 2013 at 10:00 AM

How is it, that in today's day and age, people are actually excited about one of the most wasteful inventions in modern day? When the focus has been movign to conserving energy, reducing waste, etc., intelligent, rational human beings are excited about Keurig. I simply cannot understand how my friends and coworkers are creating so much waste for one cup of coffee. Instead of making a pot, with one compostable filter, there are at least 10 people in my office who make 2 to 3 cups of this coffee a day. That is 30 little plastic cups at the end of the day, times 5 days a week, times 52 weeks a year. That is approximately 7, 800 plastic cups per year and that is just for a little section of the office. I want to hang a sign over it that says "Completely Wasteful, FOR SHAME!!!!" How do people shut their brains off so easily? Man. —I hate Keurig
