I love that this is a time when entrepreneurs are percolating with ideas. Yesterday, I read an article in my local newspaper, The Morning Call about an eco-alternative to K-Cups. I'm not sure if this is worldwide thing but locally the popularity of the Keurig has exploded despite how costly it is to buy the machine and the refills. Unfortunately, unnecessary waste has also gotten out of control.
The silver lining is a company called Ekobrew which sells reusable baskets specially designed to fit the Keurig. It's a cheaper alternative than buying new cups and you are free to use the brand of coffee you prefer. And you can easily throw the coffee grounds into your compost pail. The plastic is BPA free. Love it!!
