Reusable K-Cup - $7.79
Everyone loves their coffee, and Kuerig machines are in 15% of homes - and in many offices too. The Keurig is designed for convenience and ease of use, but if you’re still using those adorable little cups, you’re creating a lot of waste. A cup a day, 5 days a week totals over 250 little plastic cups with your name on them heading to the landfill each year. With this little contraption, you can ditch the one-time use cups for good.
These reusable glass straws are a great for anyone who loves drinking with a straw but is mindful of how wasteful plastic straws are. There are tons of options for smoothies, cocktails, fun and bright designs for kids. Using reusable straws over and over again easily reduces the kind of plastic waste that we don’t even think about in our daily lives.
