Like many Americans, Angela loves her Keurig®. She can pop in a single pod and get a delicious cup of coffee, tea or cocoa in two minutes. What she doesn’t love is that awful feeling that she gets when she reads about all the waste plastic that winds up tossed away into landfills. Much of it will eventually end up in the ocean or rivers. Sometimes it breaks down a bit and those small pieces of jagged plastic can choke wildlife and fish.
These days, we’re all really concerned about planet earth. After all, it’s our only place to live. But experts say that we must stop polluting at once and begin to stem the growing tide of pollution in our air, water and soil. That leaves us all searching for effective ways to stop polluting and start making the planet healthier.
Though K-Cup® pods are ultra convenient, they’re typically made of plastic or aluminum with aluminum foil lids. You use one pod, one time, then throw it in the trash. At last count, about 10 billion of these pods make it into landfills each year. Facts like these trouble Angela and other environmentally conscience consumers.
So what’s the solution? It’s simple. Reusable K-Cups®. These coffee pods are manufactured to be used over and over. One pod might last for several years. The DeliBru brand of reusable K-Cups® has superior construction with a special top that allows the water to flow over the grounds to brew a perfect cup of coffee every time. Once your coffee has been brewed, simply remove the pod from the coffee maker. Next, open the lid and dump the used grounds into the trash or garbage disposal. No plastic or other waste goes in the trash.
Angela did a bit of research before switching over to reusable K-Cups®. She found that you can buy 4 reusable pods in a box for about $8—that’s just $2 each. And they can be rinsed out and used over and over. She also found that the same vendor sells thin paper filters that fit snugly into the pods to eliminate any grit or grounds winding up in your coffee. This makes for a delicious cup of coffee you can enjoy with no guilt. Because there are four pods in the box, you could also use separate reusable pods for brewing other beverages such as tea, cocoa or even soup.
Each year, more people buy a Keurig® and most say they love it. But with that rise in the use of these coffee machines, we’ll also see a huge rise in the amount of plastic that winds up in landfills. That’s why it’s so important to get the word out. After Angela bought her reusable K-Cup® pods, she took a couple of them to work and showed her friends how easy they are to use. She explained how you could use any type of coffee in them and how easy it is to insert the paper filter to ensure delicious coffee goes into your cup without any sediment.
Her friends were impressed and started calling her “Angela, the pod Queen,” a name she accepted happily. These days, she’s trying all sorts of different types of coffee beans. She no longer has to search for Keurig® pods; now she can try new brands of coffee as they hit the market. And, she enjoys her coffee without the guilt. Clean up is easy and the world is a better place.
As a nice surprise, she also did the math and found out that she was saving anywhere from $250-500 per year depending on how much coffee she drinks each day. For a single girl like Angela, that’s a lot of money. She put some of it into her savings account and she donated some to her favorite charity, the community pet shelter.
Angela loves saving stray animals and she loves saving the earth. And she doesn’t have to sacrifice delicious coffee to do both.
Reusable K-Cups® are pretty easy to use. Place a paper filter inside the cup. It should fit snugly. Now use a spoon to add several teaspoons of coffee grounds. Don’t overfill the pod. Close the lid. It should snap in place. Now insert it into your Keurig just as you would a regular pod. The DeliBru K-Cup® has a specially made lid that forces the hot water to flow across all the grounds. The mesh sides allow the hot coffee to flow freely out into your coffee cup.
Reusable K-Cups® can be used in a wide range of coffee machines, including:
DeliBru Reusable K-Cups® are easy to clean. Just rinse them out and place them on a rack to dry. They won’t rust or break apart. Under normal usage, one reusable pod should provide you with years of delicious home-brewed coffee in your Keurig® machine. And for much less than you would pay for K-Cup® Pods.
In fact, Angela checked the price of her favorite Keurig K-Cup® pods. She found them at a local store for $26.99 for a box of 48. This works out to $.56 cents for each pod. She also checked the price on her favorite ground coffee. It’s called Mayorga Café Cubano and it costs $18 for 2 pounds. This coffee is organic and non-gmo. It’s also Kosher, which was important to Angela. According to the company that distributes this brand, you can expect to get 96 cups of coffee from 2 pounds of grounds. This works out to just $.18 cents per cup.
Now, each time Angela has a cup of coffee, she reminds herself that she’s saving 34 cents. It may not seem like much at first, but if you’re an avid coffee drinker or have several coffee drinkers in your home, the savings could add up fast. In just a year or so, Angela could have enough money saved to take a trip home to see her parents.
