Becoming eco-responsible one coffee at a time
Do you remember a few years ago when single-use coffee capsules entered our lives? I mean, what a smart invention, I sure was a big fan of those! By pressing a single button and in only a few seconds, you get this delicious cup of coffee.
For a long time, as I am the only one drinking coffee at home, I would use single-use coffee capsules to start my day.
After a while of drinking single-use coffee capsules, I found out more about the subject and quickly realized the harmful effect of coffee capsules on our planet (more than 10 billion non-compostable capsules will be purchased again this year). Some even say that if we lined them all up, we could go around the globe several times. Ouch.
IT’S WITH TEARY EYES THAT I SAID GOODBYE TO SINGLE-USE COFFEE CAPSULE
It’s at that moment that my green side took over and I found myself putting away my single-serve coffee maker to replace it with my old coffee maker. It’s with teary eyes that I said goodbye to my quick and easy coffee cup. Knowing all about the damaging effects of single-use plastic capsule clogging our landfills, I had to make a change and stopped using them.
BUT I QUICKLY DRIED MY TEARS AS…
A few years later, I heard about OneCoffee’s capsules. First, in 2013 when they launched their partially compostable coffee pod and then in 2018 when they launch their first fully compostable coffee capsule.
Do you know what this means? Well, it’s pretty awesome. You can now dust off your single-serve coffee maker to make good use of it again as OneCoffee’s capsules are COMPOSTABLE! #HappiestIHaveBeenInALongTime. As simple as it sounds, you use it to make your quick coffee cup and then you dispose of it in approved municipal compost programs. No guilty feelings!
FAIR TRADE AND ORGANIC COFFEE ROASTED IN CANADA
They are not using just any kind of coffee in the OneCoffee pods. The creators are true coffee connoisseurs. The 100% Arabica coffee used for each capsule is certified organic and fair trade. As well, the coffee beans are roasted in Canada. They individually test the coffee beans for the right aromas, flavors, and mouth-feel to create their OneCoffee capsules.
They looked into every single component to create the best compostable single-use coffee pods. Nothing has been spared from the fair trade and organic coffee grounds to the construction of the compostable pod itself!
BEING ECO-RESPONSIBLE ONECOFFEE AT A TIME
You too can now change the world OneCoffee at a time with their delicious single-use coffee capsules. They offer several blends; breakfast, Ethiopian, Colombian, French roast, Peruvian, Sumatran, and also decaf. My favorite is the Colombian blend, a well-balanced cup of coffee that is the perfect start to my day.
You can purchase the OneCoffee capsules in most Canadian supermarkets; Safeway, Wholefoods, Provigo, Maxi, Loblaw, Superstore, and more. You can also buy them online at Amazon.ca, Walmart.ca, Well.ca, etc.
Get brewing girls! OneCoffee has finally arrived in our lives, in our single-serve coffee makers as well as in our compost bins! We no longer have a reason to be tired (hahah, well, that depends ;))!
OneCoffee capsules are compatible with Keurig machines using K-cups. For more information, visit the OneCoffee website.
