By now, surely you’ve heard of the greatness of single-serve coffee brewers such as the Keurig K-Cup and coffee pod brewers. These miracle-makers are perfect for households or the office, especially since not everyone in a single home or office agrees on the strength of coffee, its flavor, or if it’s even caffeinated. K-Cups and coffee pods are also less messy than traditional coffee makers, which makes these brewers more appealing just with this simple fact.
That said, however, one problem many potential single-serve buyers have with K-Cups is how wasteful the cups seems to be. Yes, the K-Cup is tiny, but if you drink just one K-Cup a day, you’re adding 365 cups to a landfill a year. At this point in time, the K-Cups are not biodegradable, so they seem to be overly wasteful compared to traditional coffee makers. Coffee pods themselves, on the other hand, are 100% biodegradable, with the exception of their foil packaging. Maybe you won’t be sending as much to a landfill with coffee pod packages compared to K-Cups, but it can still add up if you’re an avid coffee drinker.
Fortunately, there is a 100% biodegradable answer to the single-serve coffee dilemma. White Bear’s coffee pods are completely biodegradable, including the packaging for the pods. All of the White Bear coffee pod will degrade in a landfill, and in fact, you can throw the entire pod into your compost pile. The White Bear coffee pod wrapper will degrade fully in a landfill.
