10 Brilliant Ways to Recycle Keurig K-Cups

Keurig shared recently that sustainability is a priority for them. They plan to make sure 100% of K-Cup packs are recyclable by 2020 and zero waste sent to landfills. This is according to their yearly sustainability report.. The recent report about John Sylvan, creator of the K-Cup in the early 1990s, says he regrets making something that he feels will never be recyclable. This got me thinking. I use dozens of k-Cups A WEEK! I started searching for ways to recycle Keurig K Cups.

  1. Thanks for all those great ideas. We only use 5 K-cups in a week, because it’s just a weekend treat for us, but I never thought about it before. It will be great when they’re recyclable.
