K-Cups make life easier in a lot of ways. They’re fast, convenient, and a surefire way to satisfy a caffeine addiction.
There’s just one (big) problem with these little coffee dispensers: K-Cups are a bane for the environment. Once plastic ends up in landfills, it remains there for hundreds, maybe even thousands, of years. These landfills pollute air, land, and water; destroy wildlife habitat; and are major sources of greenhouse gases, which speed up climate change.
There are several ways to reduce K-Cups’ environmental impact (outside of not using them in the first place). For starters, there are more and more opportunities to recycle K-Cups. If that’s not an option where you live, then don’t give up hope: It’s also possible to keep K-Cups out of the waste stream by creatively reusing them.
What good is a used K-Cup, you might wonder? Turns out, it can be used in a multitude of ways. Here are just a couple of the many creative ways to reuse K-Cups 💚
