We stop using K-Cups.

It really is that simple.

Bunn MCU ground coffee drawer. I haven't bought a k cup since I got this. Waaaaay better than k cups (although k cups are better with the Bunn than my Keurig). No waste, and the grounds make my plants happy :D

Start to use Bunn MyCafe MCU!!! It is able to make a wonderful and flavourful cup of coffee anytime of the day even though it doesn't remove the waste but I am sure that it can reduce it. :lol: :lol:

Keurig needs to figure out a different material for K-cups!

But if you must use kcups and are committed to recycling there's always this:

It can be done!

I went to the NAMA coffee, tea, and water show in Dallas back in November and RealCup is coming out with a great brewer. It blows Kuerig out of the water.

They took the best of kuerig and improved on them.

I work for a food services company that provides kuerigs to customers and we are planning to switch to realcup. Kuerig was great and innovative but they haven't really improved on their technology much.
