Do you use a Keurig for coffee at home or at your workplace? Take a look at your trash to see how many individual plastic containers are there, maybe even put out a separate trash can for them. Consider CHOCK FULL O NUTS cups which work in all K-Cup brewers. These were designed to minimize the use of plastic while brewing a flavorful and easy cup of coffee. These can be purchased at Harris Teeter.
