I love my Keurig. I just pop in a pod, pull down the handle and boom, fresh, hot coffee! What I don’t love is that K-Cups are non-recyclable, and are filling up landfills everywhere. It’s being said that trash from the K-Cups sold last year alone would circle the Earth almost 11 times. That’s a lot of waste! I do my best to up-cycle my K-Cups any way I can, and you will too after seeing how easy it can be. Check out my favorites below!
