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.
