Office Sustainability Tip of the Week

Have you ever thought about if the coffee pods you may use in the office are compostable?  Many of them are not and therefore wind up creating massive amounts of plastic waste each year. Last year, enough k-cups were sold that if they were placed end-to-end, they would circle the globe 10.5 times  — that is a lot of plastic waste! (Source: https://tinyurl.com/y9vd8g99). The President’s Council on Sustainability recently spoke with representatives from Tayst Coffee Company which offers 100% compostable coffee pods that can be delivered right to your office.  You can also use them at home as well. If the amount of plastic waste generated by non-recyclable or non-compostable coffee pods is something that weighs on your mind, we recommend checking out Tayst or looking into other companies that may offer coffee pods that can be recycled or composted.
